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.
EMSEAL Wins Prestigious SBANE 2010 Innovation Award, joining prior winners: Staples, iRobot, Genzyme, ZipCar…
From a field of 162 companies, expansion joint manufacturer EMSEAL Joint Systems, Ltd of Westborough, Massachusetts was named a winner of the sought-after SBANE 2010 Innovation Awards.
Featuring EMSHIELD—its breakthrough family of single-install, multi-function, fire-rated, waterproof, sound proof, hurricane-resistant, high movement expansion joint sealants—the company’s years of innovation in the mature commercial construction marketplace captivated the panel of 43 judges.
Judging criteria included:
- Compelling idea/technology
- Demonstrates significant benefit to users and addresses market need or creates a new market
- Marketplace success measured by profit, volume, growth rate, customer commitments, user reviews, ROI, and market impact.
The first ever, UL listed, fire-rated expansion joint for split slabs as well as a 3-hour rated wall expansion joint are announced by EMSEAL at Sealant Waterproofing and Restoration Institute’s February 2011 Winter Technical meeting.
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.
EMSEAL’s expansion joints installed at the new Yankee Stadium. During construction the joint gap dimensions varied and needed Sizing and product modifications. EMSEAL engineers work to make this happen.
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 Tech Support 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.
