Fabric Expansion Joints



Expansion Joints Fabric – are well suited for Joints that have excessive movements in all directions where Steel Expansion Joints are not ideal. They are Light weight and can be manufactured for many applications including high temperature and corrosive environment application’s.

Features of Fabric Expansion Joints

  • Lower shipping and installation costs
  • Excellent corrosion and chemical resistance
  • Less force to flex than metal expansion joints
  • More movement in shorter face-to-face
  • Vibration dampening and sound attenuation
  • Unique application solutions
  • High cycle life
  • Easily repairable and installable
  • Corrosion and chemical resistance
  • Can handle and Absorb axial, transverse and torsional movements
  • Variety of flexible belt materials available:

– Single layer and composite belts
– Elastomers have excellent abrasion resistance
– Custom designed for each specific application

Design Considerations

  • Media: Internal and External Environment
  • Temperature: Constant operating and maximum excursion
  • Pressure: Normal positive or negative
  • Movements: Axial and lateral, simultaneously or independently
  • Installation: Existing equipment and duct flanges
  • Assembly: Factory-assembled or field-spliced


  • U-type
  • Belt type
  • Square
  • Rectangular or round
  • No size restriction
  • Choice of FF dimension, depending on movements
  • Associated Metal Work: Backup bars, frames, flanges and baffles
