Expansion Control Joints

Expansion Control Joints

To ensure your building is protected from cracking and wall movement Helitec Structural Services can fit expansion control joints using cost effective and non- disruptive methods.

We are experts in the installation of movement joints using marine grade stainless still movement ties that maintain the structural integrity of your building. We are leaders in the field of masonry building remediation.

Several building defects such as thermal expansion and contraction, brick growth, foundation movement etc can be fixed by fitting movement joints. In some older buildings, movement joints were not created during construction and the effects of movement can be quite noticeable due cracking and bulging.

Once reason for the retro fitting of a movement joint is established, we can use various methods for the creation of expansion/movement/control joints. Helitec are experts at replacing and installing masonry wall expansion control joints. 

Using the correct location and spacing of movement joints in buildings as specified in the Australian Standards AS:3700 & AS:4773 as well as The Australian Construction Code 2016 your wall movement problems will be solved.
