Neuchatel NZ Limited, best known for it’s innovative construction waterproofing solutions including IKO Permalite mastic asphalt, and IKO Prevent fire-retarding waterproof membranes, recently announced an agreement with Australian company Unison Joints Pty Ltd, to supply it’s range of top-of-the-line seismic joints in NZ.
Unison Joints differ from conventional expansion joints in that they are delivered fully assembled, and hence reduce construction time on site, as well as reduce risk of imprecise finishing.
Neuchatel MD Brian Mohan sees Unison Joints as a natural extension.
Neuchatel’s Managing Director, Brian Mohan, states “This is a natural extension of our flooring and waterproofing business, as it’s important that seismic joints are installed correctly, and do not adversely affect the integrity of the structure they’re built to protect. Few companies have the experience that we have in this area”.
Unison joints are ideal for high profile traffic areas such as sports complexes, car parks, and hospitals, where joints need to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Neuchatel will be undertaking it’s first installation early this year on a new hotel development on Auckland’s North Shore.
For the last 100+ years Neuchatel has been protecting tens of thousands of surfaces from deterioration caused by heavy machinery and the elements. In this time they’ve refined their products and services to be more durable, environmentally friendly and affordable – especially for large scale projects.
