In addition to our core product range containing a wide selection of Circular Expansion Joints, Belman also provides Rectangular Expansion Joints.
Many design options
Belman design and manufacture Rectangular Expansion Joints with single and multi-convolution bellows. These units can be made with no size limitation since they can be supplied in sections for transport and reassembly on-site.
Rectangular Expansion Joints can be designed to accept a combination of axial and lateral movement. When signiﬁcant lateral movement is to be absorbed, a twin-bellows arrangement is usually required. Alternative corner arrangements can be supplied including single and double mitre and when necessary with rounded corners. Frames and bellows are available in a wide range of materials, sizes and conﬁgurations to suit individual customer requirements. These Expansion Joints are invariably used as customised solutions to expansion problems in rectangular ducting; they are purpose-designed and manufactured to match the customer’s unique requirements.

Rectangular expansion joints are customised solutions and are available in all dimensions, all sizes and all materials.
If the Rectangular Expansion Joints are large, they can be delivered in sections to ease transit and installation.

On installation the sections of the bellows and ﬂow liner are ﬁtted and welded into position by the installer. The Rectangular Expansion Joints are ﬁtted with shipping bars temporarily welded to the ﬂange edges to protect the Rectangular Expansion Joints, preventing damage during transit and assist with its handling into the ﬁnal position at the jobsite.
