After a winged seal had failed in extension due to post-tension shortening of the slabs adjacent to the deck, a watertight solution for the large resulting structural joint opening was needed. The old system was removed leaving 3/4″ deep blockouts on each side of the opening. The blockouts were filled with EMSEAL’s flexible, impact and sound absorbing nosing material and SJS System was installed into the joint gap. The result is a watertight cover plate system that is quiet and free of any mechanical fastenings, embeds, or anchors into the concrete.
