Tulsa County and other areas in Oklahoma can see weather extremes. Record-breaking heat and sub-zero temperatures in the same year are not uncommon, and the challenges to property owners to protect commercial building investments are numerous.

We use an expansion joint in many commercial structure walls and floors to introduce a flexible material into a slab separation. The idea is to ensure building sections can disjoin, expand and contract safely. Sealants or bond-breakers (liquids, rods, sprays or tapes) allow for the section’s movement but must also mitigate moisture accumulation between slabs or sections.

There’s a renewed focus on providing long-term safety for commercial construction properties. Partnering with the right company for added diligence and performance can make a big difference now and later.

Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing and Expansion Joints: Providing Invisible but Critical Support

Buildings expand in the heat and contract in the cold. Architects and construction contractors want expansion joints that allow expansion and contraction without damaging or degrading the structure.

Wall and flooring systems need to be ADA-compliant and meet other regulatory requirements. The safety factors they require (and provide) include slip-resistant cover plates, fire-rated systems and watertight properties.

  • Exterior wall joints: These can be rated or non-rated and include cavity walls, planters or tunnels. Façades can include:
    • Blocks/bricks: Industry knowledge is critical with certain materials. Many repairs and replacements stem from inexperienced contractors working with block or brick walls’ insulation and waterproofing.
    • CMU: A concrete masonry unit is made of durable, easy-to-install materials.
    • EIFS: The exterior insulation and finish system is a type of wall-cladding configuration for exterior walls’ waterproofing and finish.
  • Interior wall joints: Installations include hospitals, office buildings and mixed-use retail/condos.
  • Plaza deck: This style deck accommodates pedestrian/vehicular traffic on top of occupied spaces. Examples include airports, parking decks, roadways, roof joints and stadiums.
  • Solid deck: This slab can handle heavy traffic and weathering.
  • Split-slab deck: A “sandwich slab” or split-slab deck is a structural support slab under a topping slab. They’re separated by a waterproof membrane or coating. Together, the structural support and topping slabs manage heavy foot traffic and weather conditions.
