Expansion joints operate in unique environments and are a critical link to the sustainability of a bridge structure. The effects of failing expansion joints or improper system selection, will severely weaken the structural integrity of a bridge. BAS Expansion Joints (NZ)™ continues to improve and enhance the performance, preservation and installation of bridge expansion joints. Because of this constant drive to improve, restore integrity and ensure serviceability, there is a wide selection of expansion joint systems from which an owner, engineer/architect or contractor may select.
Because of their unique nature, and often custom project requirements, we can not feature all our available bridge joints on this website. Please contact Marcus Beagley on 027 295 4457, and he will consult with you to ensure the best product is supplied for your job.
