EMSEAL Joint Systems, Ltd.
The BIG JOBS CHOOSE EMSEAL EXPANSION JOINTS
From the Meadowlands to the 49ers, the Coast Guard to the Pentagon, EMC to Microsoft, Atlanta to Heathrow airports, serious projects choose EMSEAL expansion joints to ensure watertightness and durability. Here's how the 49ers did it...
FINALLY. A BETTER WAY TO SEAL POOL EXPANSION JOINTS.
SUBMERSEAL is the first tension-less sealant developed specifically to resist head pressure of submerged applications.  Swimming pools, water parks, water features, and utilities around the world are discovering this lasting alternative to caulk and backer rod.  See who's using and request a sample here:

THEY'RE USING IT IN NEW ZEALAND.  What's in your bridge expansion joints?
Bridge Expansion Joint System (BEJS) is not like other bridge expansion joints.  BEJS is supplied pre-compressed to less than the joint size.  It's held in compression by its packaging. When released it expands. Properly sized, it's never in tension. This is the key to its performance.  BEJS is watertight. This is the key to bridge preservation. Order BEJS for your bridge repairs. Specify BEJS for your new bridge expansion joints.  http://www.emseal.com/Products/Infrastructure/BridgeJointSeals/BEJSBridgeJointSystem.htm
"EXPANSION JOINTS ARE UGLY"
http://emseal.com/Blogs/Expansion-Joints-Are-Ugly.htm
We often hear this objection from architects. And it's true--if you ever actually see the joints.  Most people don't ever notice expansion joints. They're certainly not the visual focal point of architecture.  For us, in order to inform designers about our products and how they work, we need to show close ups. However, it's more likely that you'll never see them.  These images show the product from 40-feet away, from 15-feet, and up close. Thoughtful design placement, color choice, shadow, and the perceiver's purpose usually make expansion joints all but invisible. What shopper choosing between TJ Maxx on the left or Wegmans to the right, even knows this joint exists?

SEISMIC COLORSEAL CONFORMS.
You can't do this with a rubber-and-aluminum-rail strip seal.  Pre-compressed to smaller than the joint opening and free of any metal rails or invasive anchors, SEISMIC COLORSEAL expansion joint sealant ensures a watertight seal while uniquely conforming to substrate irregularities. And while it's at it, SEISMIC COLORSEAL insulates the joint and blocks out street noise. Wegmans and TJ Maxx chose EMSEAL for this retail mall -- what's in your joints?

MIGUTAN (mig-yoo-tan).  FUNNY NAME BUT ALWAYS GETS THE LAST LAUGH. 
When it comes to waterproofing hardscaped plaza deck expansion joints you have two choices:  1) Use MIGUTAN-FP and be happy, 2) Use a buried joint and pay to dig it up again later. Only MIGUTAN waterproofs while preventing buckling pavers.  Although imitated by competitors, none have matched the quality and attention to detail that distinguishes MIGUTAN.  Neither do they offer the technical assistance or track record of EMSEAL in ensuring continuity of seal. http://www.emseal.com/Products/Architectural/Migutan/Migutan.htm
ROOF EXPANSION JOINTS, WATERTIGHT TRANSITIONS. Continuity of seal in roof expansion joints is critical. Rarely are roof joints just straight and they all have to end somewhere. Fabrication of changes in plane and direction are a daily practice for EMSEAL. You give us the field information, we'll model it, make it and ship it.

COLOR SWITCHING. Just one of a dozen reasons to seal your wall expansion joints with COLORSEAL or SEISMIC COLORSEAL from EMSEAL.  The other reasons: watertight; ABAA compliant; Sound Transmission Class of 56; Outdoor Indoor Transmission Class of 38; hurricane resistant; up to 100% movement; exceeds ASTM E-331; tensionless; exceeds ASTM E-283; non-invasive anchoring; 26 colors; easily handles curves; installs fast.

SO HOW MUCH DID YOU REALLY SAVE ON YOUR EXPANSION JOINT SEALS?
When you factor in structural repair that will result from choosing a low-cost expansion joint or joint sealant, you could easily afford to do it right.  On this parking garage, the cost of adding structural steel reinforcing considerably out-weighed the cost of properly addressing the expansion joint.  Working together, we can achieve trouble-free, watertight expansion joints. http://www.emseal.com/Knowledge/3-DEJTreatment/Collaborative3DDesign.htm
ANYONE CAN MAKE EXPANSION JOINTS WATERTIGHT IN CROSS SECTION. It's at intersections with other joints in walls, or at elevation, plane and direction changes that your building will leak. EMSEAL makes it our business to problem solve and address field conditions to ensure continuity of seal. This Inventor model was built to solve a field condition for a recent job in Maryland. What can we help you with?
