A single-layer expansion joint is made of a single layer of material only. Depending upon the area of application, the layer is made from fabric, various elastomers or fluoropolymers accompanied by fabric reinforcement as composite materials. Single-layer expansion joints provide the tightness and chemical resistance necessary when exposed to heavy condensate.
Usage of fabric expansion joints that are pre-assembled onto steel components offers a number of advantages:
• All pre-assembling work is completed in BURGFLEX’s state-of-the-art facility
• Installing unit into the duct is quick and easy
• Transport brackets secure the unit into place during the transport and installation process
• Larger units are transported in sections and are welded on-site for easier handling, transportation and installation
