Inner view of short term fire resistant DEKOMTE expansion joint

DEKOMTE Fabric expansion joints (here membrane type expansion joint) can be designed for extreme conditions, as is common in steelworks, with special construction characteristics.

A construction that deals with the heat that builds up inside the joint with special insulation layers and the outer design with an adequate robust construction is required for longevity and reliability.

The exact build up is designed or selected case-by-case after a detailed examination of the essential design parameters.
