Transflex bridge joints comprise steel angles and a steel bridging plate system encased in a flexible elastomer.
They come in module lengths designed to be bolted to the structural concrete on either side of the expansion gap. A range of models accommodates movement up to 13 inches by shear deformation of the elastomer between the steel components. The system simultaneously provides a substantially waterproof joint and a smooth running surface.
The elastomer case is highly resistant to oils and solvent spillage. The trafficked surface includes an anti-skid pattern for safety. Each model is specifically designed to accommodate horizontal and skew movement and will also accommodate vertical movement due to rotation of up to 1/4".
