SJS SYSTEM Parking Deck Installation
This video summarizes (without sound),
the basic installation steps of the
SYSTEM from the point that the substrates have been prepared to
receive the system.
The SJS--Seismic Joint System for parking decks is a first of its
kind, watertight, high-movement, sound attenuated,
non-invasively-anchored trafficable expansion joint.
Ease of installation is among the
SYSTEM's many unique features. In contrast to predecessor
multi-component rail, gutter, and plate systems, the SJS from EMSEAL
installs without any hard, metal-metal, or metal-to-concrete anchors
SJS SYSTEM Reduces Noise while
Expansion Joints choices for large and seismic joint gaps in parking
decks have been limited to cover plates and self-centering-bar
systems. Neither of these systems is watertight. Both of these
systems are noisy. The RandD goals for the
SYSTEM from EMSEAL were: 1) Watertight; 2) Traffic and Load
Durable; 3) no invasive anchors; 4) no hard connections to concrete;
for joint openings larger than 4-inches (100mm); and 5) Quiet.
This video shows a 3-year old
SYSTEM installation in a shopping mall. The failing and noisy
self-centering bar system was replaced in phases. The result is a
dramatic difference between the yet-to-be replaced older systems and
the SJS seismic expansion joint system.
This video demonstrates the ease of installation of EMSEAL's
SYSTEM using Custom-90-degree transitions pre-manufactured to field
measurements provided by the installing contractor. This video does not
cover in detail all of the installation steps for the system. Please
consult your EMSEAL field technician and the
complete installation instructions available on emseal.com).
The installation depicted was
executed at the New York Mets, Citi Field stadium where the SJS
SYSTEM was the basis of design for all the seating bowl and
concourse joints. In addition to CitiField, the SJS SYSTEM and
SJS-FP SYSTEM have been installed on new construction projects at
the New Yankees Stadium, the new Meadowlands (NY Jets/Giants)
stadiums, the new Minnesota Twins stadium.
The EMSHIELD family of
products from EMSEAL are breakthrough innovations that incorporate
multiple joint filler functions into single product units. The
first two models
DFR2 (Deck, Fire-Rated, 2-hours) and
Fire-Rated, 2 hours) are both watertight AND fire-rated and have
been tested to the rigors of UL/ULC 2079. The test is similar
for decks and walls as depicted in this video except that for decks
the test does not have a hose-stream component.
Easy To Use web-conferencing tool
used by EMSEAL personnel.
Using the GoToMeeting web conference tool, EMSEAL staff and
representatives are easily able to run remote web-based conferences
and discussions. Staff can easily hold on-the-fly or scheduled
presentations, perform live demos and collaborate on documents in
real time. Both EMSEAL and the client see the same computer screen
and can mark-up or point to areas of the screen while talking.
This video is an example of an EMSEAL
person working with a client concerning an upcoming project. They
reach an understanding of the application and then an applicable
EMSEAL product is offered to fit the construction. The client is
able to continually ask EMSEAL specific questions and see the
feedback and results on-screen. Simply ask your EMSEAL rep to
schedule a GoToMeeting.
