Seismic Expansion or Movement Joints

As New Zealand has experienced earthquakes between 4.0 – 8.1 magnitude in the past 21 years. It’s mandatory, as outlined in the building code, that all new buildings are compliant with the rulings on seismic activity.

Unison Joints expansion joint systems were compliant to the stringent seismic building code.
