Emshield SecuritySeal SSW2: Joint Resisting Vandalism
Emshield SecuritySeal SSW2 is a pick resistant fire rated expansion joint and joint sealant, Emshield SecuritySeal SSW2 is watertight, has built-in 2-hour fire resistance, and high-movement for vertical-plane locations requiring a hardened tamper-resistant surface. Walls such as those found in prisons, detention centers, medical and psychiatric hospitals, school facilities and day-care centers are some of the many venues where SecuritySeal SSW2 is the perfect choice.

SecuritySeal SSW2 features dual-sided, pick resistant, hardened flexible polyurethane sealing surfaces adhered to a fire-retardant impregnated foam backing. Both sides of the expansion joint are waterproof and fire-rated.
SecuritySeal SSW2 is a 2-hour UL-certified fire barrier and preformed alternate to fire caulk and fire stop materials.
SecuritySeal SSW2 eliminates the need for fire blankets, mineral wools, liquid sealants, or other fire stop materials. It can be used alone or behind any other expansion joint cover, plate or filler where depth of substrate allows.
Installed entirely from the surface of the joint, SecuritySeal SSW2 vastly simplifies installation, project sequencing and coordination of trades by eliminating the need for access staging or obstruction by installation and presence of under-slab mechanical systems.
Non-invasive anchoring vastly simplifies installation and project sequencing. SecuritySeal SSW2 pick resistant fire rated wall expansion joint is tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), to the rigors of UL 2079 for wall and head-of-wall expansion joints.

Watertight — Emshield SecuritySeal is installed with the pick resistant sealant bellows facing the weather to ensure watertightness. A field-applied sealant band of supplied silicone at the bellows to substrate interface seals substrate irregularities and completes the installation.
UL/ULC Fire-Rated — Tested in accordance with the cycling and fire endurance requirements of UL-2079, listed by UL, and manufactured under UL’s Follow Up Service ensuring that what is shipped is the same as what was tested.
Non-Invasive Anchoring — There are no hard metal-to-substrate connections. This includes embedded pins, anchors, screws, bolts or tracks, trays or rails, flanges or coverplates. The system is locked to the joint faces by means of the 1) backpressure of the foam; 2) the epoxy adhesive, and 3) the injected sealant bands at the joint face.
Joint-Size Variation —through size-switching, material can be supplied to handle variations in joint size.
Sound Attenuation — Joints sealed with EMSEAL impregnated foam sealants offer exceptional acoustic dampening and feature STC/OITC sound transmission coefficients that can usually meet or exceed that of the assembly into which they are installed.
