One line of rubber expansion joints offered at AFS Joints is our elastomeric line. These expansion joints are available in a range of standard sizes and are recommended for temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. We are also capable of fabricating non-standard widths and movement capabilities as required by each client.
