movement joint in brickwork

Technical Guidance

It is the designer’s responsibility to ensure movement joints are designed to suit the actual layout and design of the structure The following should be taken into consideration: Where brickwork is in large panels with no signi˛cant openings movement joints may be provided at 15m maximum spacing.

Retrofit Movement Joints

Retrofit Movement Joints Cracking due to thermal expansion and contraction of brickwork is a common problem in buildings originally constructed with no movement joints Falcon form movement joints at strategic locations to control the effects of expansion and contraction whilst providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

What spacing should be used for brick expansion joints

Consequently, it is important to incorporate expansion joints into brickwork to accommodate this movement Expansion joints should be located where stresses or cracks are likely to develop in brickwork Prime candidates for expansion joints include long expanses of walls, corners, offsets, setbacks, and parapets.

When to use expansion joints in brickwork

Apr 30, 2015· In the UK clay brickwork experiences thermal expansion for up to 20 years after the bricks have been moved from the kiln Typically, most expansion occurs within 6 months, but as the process is irreversible, this movement needs to be accommodated by using movement joint fillers, or expansion joint foams.

Expansion joint

An expansion joint or movement joint is an assembly designed to hold parts together while safely absorbing temperature-induced expansion and contraction of building materials, and vibration, or to allow movement due to ground settlement or seismic activity They are commonly found between sections of buildings, bridges, sidewalks, railway tracks, piping systems, ships, and other structur.

Understanding Collar Joints- Concrete Construction Magazine

Separation cracks sometimes develop between the interface of the masonry units and the collar joint This can be due to the different absorption rates of each masonry wythe and the fact that mortar-filled collar joints aren't compacted In addition, thermal movement can cause the outer wythe of masonry to separate from the collar joint.

Design in Brickwork

Detailing of joints Vertical control joints Vertical joints are usually about 20mm wide (15mm of expected closure, and at least 5mm remaining gap) They must be kept free of mortar An easy way to achieve this is to place a 20 x 110 timber board in the joint as the brickwork is laid, and remove it after the mortar is sufficiently set.
