MEISHUO Expansion joint covers are designed to cover the location that movement is occurring in structures. When a building in constructed it is designed to move as a result of long-term shrinkage of the structure, thermal expansion and contraction of the structure and in some cases even seismic activity. The expansion joint covers are installed over these areas of movement called expansion joints which are sometimes also referred to as movement joints, structural joints, isolation joints, control joints or seismic joints.
