Series 1100 expansion joints have proven their efficiency with time on hundreds of installations. In fact, this joint system incorporating a bolted-down strip seal has been used in Canada since 1993. First introduced in Ontario, it is now approved by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario under the Type A joint designation. These joints are provided with built-in nosing angles that protect concrete headers and resist damage often caused by snowplow blades, ensuring unparalleled durability. Series 1100 joints are designed for use on bridges, viaducts, overpasses or multi-level parking garages, among others, and can accommodate movements of up to 125 mm in some cases. When anticipated movements exceed 100 mm, the use of Goodco Z-Tech modular joints is recommended.

HEAVY TRAFFIC – BRIDGES AND VIADUCTS
This superior quality joint is delivered preassembled at the plant with nosing angles at each end of the concrete headers. The main angles measuring 100 mm x 100 mm x 10 mm are fastened to the concrete using anchor plates with 15M looped reinforcing bars, spaced at 250 mm center-tocenter (c/c). Studs measuring 19 mm in diameter x 200 mm, spaced at 200 mm center-to-center (c/c), are used to anchor the nosing angles measuring 75 mm x 75 mm x 10 mm. This model was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) and is widely used in other Canadian provinces.
A more economical version without nosing angles is also available.
Factory preassembly is typically done using temporary assembly angles measuring 75 mm x 75 mm x 10 mm bolted onto joint elements. Slotted holes in the angles facilitate adjustment of the joint opening on site based on installation temperature, when required.
EPOXY INJECTION SYSTEM
An epoxy injection system is also available, and forms an integral part of the Type A joint approved by the MTO. Epoxy injection is performed seven days after concreting of the joint. This process helps fill voids under the angles and seal cracks that may have developed during concrete curing, making these concrete headers perfectly watertight. In Ontario, watertightness tests are required for all joints installed. These tests check watertightness of the joint and the concrete headers.
LIGHT TRAFFIC – PARKING GARAGES AND PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES
Expansion joint with stop bars used to protect against snowplow blades. Superior quality castin- place model, using 100 mm x 100 mm x 10 mm angles and 13 mm x 150 mm anchoring studs staggered at 150 mm center-to-center (c/c).
A more economical version that can be installed in a confined space using 75 mm x 75 mm x 10 mm angles and 13 mm x 150 mm anchoring studs staggered at 150 mm center to center (c/c).
Wall to floor joint cast-in-place against the slab and bolted onto the wall using chemical anchors or 13 mm x 95 mm mechanical anchors staggered at 250 mm center-to-center (c/c).
