DEKOMTE is known for its high quality products in the sector of fabric expansion joints. Not only because of the quality of the materials but principally because of the extensive experience and technical nature that DEKOMTE successfully applied in highly diverse cases. DEKOMTE considers the expansion joint as integral part of the duct compensation system. Only by evaluation and integration of all components; such as duct connection, duct material and the assessment of the supporting steel frame of the expansion joint an optimised solution in regard to technology and price can be found.
Fabric expansion joints are suited for gaseous media, such as air, exhaust gases and solvent fumes, as well as for operation below the dew point (also involving substances with a certain concentration of acids), as well as with abrasive enriched gases (e.g. coal or cement dust). Due to their modular design, fabric expansion joints can especially well adjust to different requirements (e.g. critical sealing requirements, frequent temperature and pressure variations) and therefore cover a very wide spectrum of applications. The high quality materials as well as the technical experience in designing and manufacturing vouch for the high quality and long lifetime of the fabric expansion joints of DEKOMTE.
For example, fire-proof expansion joints – in walls and ceiling passages that meet the requirements of fire safety – can withstand the flames at least 90 minutes (in accordance with DIN 4102). This maximum level of reliability can only be ensured by a high quality production process of the applied materials according to their specific characteristics.
Furthermore, DEKOMTE have the required certificates for radiation resistant materials in the nuclear power sector. The strict safety instructions in the nuclear power sector also apply to expansion joints.
