The quick and easy way to step up and down at curbs and parapet walls.
As in all EMSEAL expansion joint systems, continuity of seal through changes in plane and direction is an essential performance differentiator. Emseal is the first company to warrant curb and parapet wall/corner transitions to be watertight when sealed with our factory fabricated assemblies.
These single-piece 90-degree units have a 300mm long leg and a 150mm vertical piece on each end of the elbow. The Universal-90’s are symmetrically coated on both sides. This allows them to be installed as an upturn or as a downturn. EMSEAL’s “Universal-90’s” more reliably ensure continuity of seal and allow for much faster installation by eliminating field cutting or notching and bending at angles.
Universal-90 Transitions are cut at 90-degrees with both ends open for a butt-connection to another stick or another Universal-90. Either leg can be trimmed in the field to connect to straight run material or to another Universal-90 when going, for example, up and over a curb, into a parapet, or up and down treads and risers.
Universal-90 Terminations end, on the 6-inch leg, in a 45o sealed and mitered end. This allows termination as a stand alone upturn or provides a surface against to which a wall joint system can be married. Flipped over, the Universal-90 termination unit can be alternatively installed as a downturn termination where a joint runs off the deck. In this use, the sealed, mitered end provides a drip edge for drainage of water off the joint.
