Heels, wheels and signs no problem for Migutrans & SJS floor joints at BNA.
Point loads are often overlooked when choosing expansion joints. Yet they are the number one cause of cupping, tearing, and clatter in many floor expansion joint covers. Airport expansion joints are particularly prone to premature failure from the forces of transient point loads.
The Migutrans series of expansion joint covers for floors is specifically designed to resist point loads. They make very clean solutions to covering wall joint too. Nashville International Airport is an excellent study in durability and lowest-total-cost of ownership.
The 2020 install of a custom SJS-FR Fire-Rated Seismic Joint System with an inverted plate is a new addition to this retrofit project. By adapting the coverplate, it created a recessed joint for a flush installation.
Migutrans Airport Expansion Joints Blend into the Environment
High Point Loads No Match for Migutrans Airport Expansion Joints
High point-load, small wheels are the number one killer of expansion joints. And they’re everywhere–in all structures including airports. The Migutrans FS 50 ensures durability.
Custom Airport Expansion Joint Covers
The flush installed SJS-FR Fire-Rated Seismic Expansion Joint Coverplate System with a custom inverted plate allows for the high-traffic concourse wheels and high-point loads to glide over the expansion joint.
