The facade is the face of the building. In contemporary architecture, the facade is of special interest expressed by large dimensions, unconventional shapes, and high material diversity. Joint design is demanding and prone to mistakes. For integral joint specification, following some rough guidelines will result in a long-lasting and tight building envelope.

Joints between construction elements can be found in different parts of a construction, e.g. between precast concrete elements in facades, around windows and doors, between floors and walls, around storage tanks, etc. Sika has a long history in construction joint sealing.
