Premium Lead Expansion Joint: 3m x 260mm
Weld sections of this 3m x 260mm, Premium Lead Expansion Joint between lengths of box, parapet or eaves gutters to prevent buckling and distortion due to expansion. Featuring a flexible, neoprene connector, these joints are used in situations where traditional steps and drips are not a practical option.
The expansion joint is formed from a central band of vulcanised neoprene, firmly bonded to side wings of Code 5 lead sheet. Individual joints are cut to the required size from the supplied, 3m x 260mm roll.
Lead expansion joints are usually fitted at 2 metre centres. A spacing of 1 meter is recommended either side of outlets and corners. The guttering is overlaid on the expansion joint to provide a minimum of 25mm cover either side. After taking care to protect the central neoprene section from damage, the expansion joint wings are lap welded to the guttering. Application of a good patination oil is recommended to prevent early oxidation. Again, it is important to ensure that the oil doesn’t make contact with the neoprene.
This durable, watertight jointing solution carries a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. Premium Lead Expansion Joints have a minimum life expectancy of 20 years if installed in compliance with the Lead Sheet Association (LSA) guidelines. These joints offer a practical alternative to reworking existing architectural details.
