For many years, Asphaltic plug joint system has been used for waterproofing small movement bridges. Although the method is quite beneficial, the system is still susceptible to leakage and results in material flowing out of the block-out in the traffic lanes.
To prevent this problem, DEK-SHIELD Infrastructure Solutions LLC has engineered a waterproofing expansion Joint protection system named the Dri-Shield System. It is a perfect remedy for the problem at hand. The use of the Dri-Shield System is a solution to stop deterioration by preventing moisture and chlorides from reaching the concrete and bridge-pillars. This is achieved by waterproofing the expansion joint with an impenetrable barrier.
