What Differentiates Latham Expansion Joints?

Dane Latham

In a world of competing products, one of the challenges for a specifier and a purchaser is to ensure that the product they choose is the one that is totally suitable for the job. Quality materials, precision manufacture, durability and performance are all part of the equation. Latham Australia has been making expansion joint covers that meet all these criteria for almost 70 years. The reputation of the Latham range is well deserved as the finest products in the market. 

Latham Expansion Joint covers are so well regarded that they are frequently specified by name. When an architect specifies a Latham joint, that does not mean “something similar to a Latham Joint”. What they want to see are real Latham Australia Expansion Joints in the finished building. 

What are the differences that make Latham the product of choice?

Latham products have decades of engineering expertise behind them and have been received numerous Australian Design Awards.

Secondly, the design of the spring steel tie bars and the mounting methods all work to keep the joint cover perfectly in place, sometimes in the face of as many as six axes of movement.  

Thirdly, our range of designs and sizes means that there is no need to compromise on structural integrity – there is always a Latham Expansion Joint to meet your specific requirements. All of our joints are made on demand, to our exacting standards, in our Australian factory.   

You should also know that all our joints come in matched series, so that Floor, Floor to Wall, Wall, Ceiling and Roof junctions can all be handled with compatible, attractive joint covers for total satisfaction and performance.
