Bridge Expansion Joints

Bridge expansion joints (or movement joints) are designed to enable continuous traffic between two structures and are necessary to accommodate structural movements due to creep and shrinkage effects, temperature variations or deformations under live load. They are suitable for reinforced concrete, pre-stressed concrete, composite and steel structures, and particularly for bridge decks.

Bridge expansion joints are also designed to allow sufficient vertical movement so that bearings can be replaced without needing to disassemble the expansion joint.

Freyssinet has been installing expansion joints to structures all over the world for more than 40 years.

As a bridge expansion joint specialist, Freyssinet is able to offer a full range of products, an inspection and design service to establish the correct type of joint for your structure and provide expert installation.
