Joint Venture


Unison Joints are installed fully assembled, so no messy joins, and no time wasted fitting it together.

Company: Neuchatel NZ

Neuchatel NZ Limited, best known for it’s innovative construction waterproofing solutions including IKO Permanite mastic asphalt, and IKO Prevent fire-retarding waterproof membranes, has a new string to it’s bow.

Now Neuchatel is also the NZ agent for top-of- the-line seismic joints by Australian company Unison Joints Pty Ltd. These 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’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. If you’d like to see the more than 28 products available, check out our Unison Joints Brochure on line.
