Fabric Expansion Joints

Vibrant Power offers fabric expansion joints that provide both insulation and protection against abrasion while efficiently compensating for thermal growth and vibration.

The advantages and benefits of fabric expansion joints vary by the application, environment, and other factors related to an industrial process. Vibrant Power’s experience covers a range of applications that include fly ash processes, industrial and commercial kilns, ducting, flue gases, and corrosive materials, among many others.

Vibrant fabric expansion joints offer superior flexibility and will handle large thermal movements, in a relatively short space. They are excellent for vibration isolation and reduction of mechanical noise transmission. Fabric expansion joints are available in various materials and designs with no size restrictions. Expansion joints can be supplied with appropriate metal work (such as angles, baffles, and retaining bars) for ease of installation at site.
