Dozens of MetraGators find their way Into Orange County Convention Center

Engineers for the Orange County Convention Center project, Phase V, chose MetraGators over other expansion joints, installing them throughout the engineered piping system.

A facility of this size has extremely long runs of heating and cooling water piping for the building comfort systems. MetraGators are the perfect joints for these large commercial systems.

Compact and maintenance-free, these joints cost significantly less to install, and easily meet the needs specified by the project engineers.
