SJS SYSTEM Parking Deck Installation

This video summarizes (without sound), the basic installation steps of the SJS 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 SJS 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 or embedments.
Link to EMSEAL video--SJS Seismic Joint System eliminates noise problem in parking deck. SJS SYSTEM Reduces Noise while Waterproofing.

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 SJS 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 SJS 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.

SJS SYSTEM Installed in the New York Met's CitiField.

This video demonstrates the ease of installation of EMSEAL's SJS 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. 

UL/ULC Fire-Rated Expansion Joints for Walls.

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 WFR2 (Wall, 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.
