Bridge joints

Repair and reinforcement of structures

Bridge joints

Joint assembly

They act as a separator between two structures. Due to thermal changes, these structures tend to expand, so it is necessary to have a margin of space between them, avoiding their direct contact. Joint replacement and repair is a vital task for the maintenance of our roads and bridges. It is important that the joint is well protected both from vehicles passing over it and from weather effects such as rain. They deform to absorb the movements to which the structure is subjected, and are sized accordingly. Therefore, they have to be taken into account:

  • Movements due to shrinkage and creep of concrete
  • Due to temperature
  • due to vehicle braking

The type of joints is very varied and depends on the structure on which it will be placed and the movements it will have to absorb. Some of these are:

  • Gasket sealed with elastic material
  • Folded rubber band
  • With sliding plates
  • Modular
  • Comb seals
  • External sliding sheet metal gaskets

Azul is a company specialized in the repair and installation of all types of gaskets, as well as modular metal gaskets, which are very common due to their performance. We use our equipment and machinery to carry out the work. Always taking into account the safety and the deadline of the job.
