EWJ   EWJ-Series                          ♦ Best suited for vertical expansion joint openings, however it may also run across soffit areas
♦ The design features an elastomeric, primary seal locked into aluminum edge rails to follow the contour of the building structure
♦ To meet the waterproofing requirements of exterior applications, a double seal system is employed; a condensation moisture barrier seal provides waterproofing protection of the joint opening through all movement conditions
♦ Once the extruded aluminum frames are attached to the side walls, the seals easily snap-fit into the frames for ease of installation
♦ Seals can be heat-fused at directional changes to ensure weather-tight junctures
♦ Parapet transitions are factory produced to ensure a continuous weather barrier
♦ The primary visual seals are extruded from Santoprene (R) material which may be custom colored to coordinate with any building's facade. Standard colors include black, white, tan and gray. Please contact EMS for a color chart.
