  • Patent number: 10858826
    Abstract: Embodiments of an expansion joint are provided. The expansion joint is configured to cover a gap between a first architectural surface and a second architectural surface. The expansion joint includes a panel having a first surface and a second surface in which the second surface is opposite the first surface. When the panel covers the gap, the panel is magnetically connected to both of the first architectural surface or the second architectural surface. The expansion joint may also a tether to connect the panel to the architectural surfaces when the panel becomes dislodged.

  • Patent number: 10718156
    Abstract: Embodiments of a shade system are provided. The shade system includes a first track assembly, a second track assembly, a shade, and a bottom rail. The track assemblies include tracks having an interior surface defined by a front wall, a rear wall, a sidewall, and two partitions. One of the partitions extends from the front wall, and the other of the partitions extends from the rear wall. A gap is provided between the two partitions. The track assemblies also include rods disposed within the tracks that do not contact the interior surfaces. The shade has outer loops wrapped around each rod and a bottom loop wrapped around the bottom rail. The bottom rail is connected to idler ends having loop portions around each respective rod. The bottom rail is disposed between the partitions. The idler ends are disposed within the tracks.

  • Patent number: 10385564
    Abstract: A system for attaching a flexible expansion joint to the surface of a building such as the floor of a building. The system for attaching the joint is configured to secure the joint and provide, in effect, a form up to which a top coat of material such as concrete or asphalt can applied over an existing floor structure. The system provides a universal base unit upon which common extension units can be attached and stacked to vary the height of the form for the surface coat.

  • Patent number: 10052506
    Abstract: Two-sided and two-sided mirrored fire barriers having each of their two sides tested, rated, and certified for use in common spaces, such as spaces shared between two rooms are taught. Two-sided barriers require only one barrier and one installation, instead of the two presently needed. Two-sided barriers may have different construction and composition on each side; whereas each side of a mirrored fire barrier is a mirror image of the other. All two-sided barriers include top-mounted, bottom-mounted, and side-mounted barriers, gas and moisture impermeable barriers, and barriers shaped to fit into the expansion joint spaces created when a plurality of expansion joints intersect. The barriers are disposed to various sizes, lengths, widths, and depths, in addition to variations in shape, content, number and composition of layers, materials, and attachment means required to accommodate the variety of sizes and shapes of expansion-joint spaces and the desired rating, in terms of hours.

  • Patent number: 10053857
    Abstract: An expansion joint cover plate assembly for covering a gap between first and second sections of a building formation such as wall, floor or ceiling of a building. The assembly includes a cover plate, a support structure for supporting the plate relative to the building formation and a spring biasing structure for holding the plate against the support structure.

  • Patent number: 9845597
    Abstract: A fire barrier assembly includes a fire barrier, mounting elements and securement elements. The mounting elements are positioned along the length of the fire barrier on an inner surface of the fire barrier. The mounting elements engage one or more of the securement elements to the fire barrier. When installed within an expansions space, the securement elements are used to tension mount the fire barrier assembly securely and generally immovably within the expansion space, without the need for any mechanical, adhesive, or other fixed connection to anchor the fire barrier assembly in place. As such, no modification to the building structures defining the expansion space (e.g. no drilling holes, applying adhesive, etc.) is need to mount the fire barrier assembly. If desired, the fire barrier assembly may easily be detached and removed from the expansion space.

  • Patent number: 9745172
    Abstract: An elevator cab protection system is provided. The system includes first and second panels and three clips. Each of the clips includes a lower leg portion and an upper leg portion. The first clip is coupled to the first panel by a fastener. The lower leg portion of the first clip and the first panel define a first downwardly opening slot. The second clip is coupled to the first panel by a fastener with the upper leg portion of the second clip located above the upper end of the first panel. The third clip is coupled to the second panel by a fastener. The lower leg portion of the third clip is configured to be inserted into the upwardly opening slot defined by the upper leg portion of the second clip and the wall of the elevator cab to support the second panel relative to the first panel.

  • Patent number: 9494235
    Abstract: An elastic seal for a building joint which includes internal walls or dividers which change orientation when the seal is compressed for placement into the building joint. The change in orientation allow for the seal to apply a relatively uniform force against the joint walls extending from the bottom wall to the top wall of the seal. Additionally, the change in orientation reduces the deflection of the top wall of the seal upwardly when compressed in the building joint. The walls also become more vertically oriented when the seal in compressed. This vertical orientation provides increased load support for the top wall when the seal is compressed into a joint.
