Building Connectivity

Building Connectivity is the physical  connection between two separate buildings with separate foundations. This condition is called an ‘expansion joint’. Expansion joints between building foundation walls can vary in width from just a few inches to more than a foot. This gap between buildings allows each structure to move independently while being connected and performing as one single building. Every large scale commercial complex has expansion joints throughout the building. These joints are usually filled with some type of rubber, flexible gasket. This gasket must also work in conjunction with some type of waterproofing system connected  throughout the building area. Over time expansion joints and waterproofing systems can fail, allowing water infiltration and these failures can prove to be catastrophic to the bullying’s structural integrity.

Using a PlySolutions foam as part of an expansion joint and waterproofing system is a very effective way to provide a waterproof,  flexible, durable, long lasting addition to this system. When using Plysoutions 402 Hydrofoam on top of the waterproofing system it will create a an extra  strong waterproofing and protective layer that is not only hydrophobic, but is also lightweight and strong enough to reduce the structural overburden when applied to below grade applications.
