Watertight Expansion Joints and Construction Sealants by EMSEAL

OITC-56 and R-13.5 Expansion Joints Match High Performance Building, Design, and Functional Intent of the Kellogg School of Management

Seismic Colorseal-DS Expansion Joints are able to stand up against high winds and strong weather at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

EMSEAL’s Seismic Colorseal and Seismic Colorseal-DS wall expansion joint systems are able to accommodate the many demands placed on them in Northwestern University’s new Kellogg School of Management’s Global Hub. Having been tested to provide high sound attenuation and R-Values and low air permeability architects at KPMB Architects chose EMSEAL products to ensure high indoor environmental quality.

Seismic Colorseal-DS provides sound attenuation reaching an OITC rating of up to 52 and a STC rating of 62 and a calculated R-Value of 13.5 in this application at a custom depth of 6-inches (150mm). These features are helping the hub in its effort to achieve a LEED gold certification which it is on track to receive.
