What is joint articulation?
Articulation joints are tied at specific intervals and sealed with filler. In straight walls that do not have openings, the articulation joints must be at no more than six metre centres. They must not be closer than the height of the wall away from the corners. Where articulation joints are adjacent to a door or window a gap of 10 mm must be left between the edge of the frame and the brickwork.
There are two joints in the human body that start with the letter A: The acromioclavicular joint which is the joint between the distal end of the clavicle and the acromion of the scapula. And the ankle joint which is the articulation between the distal tibia, the medial malleolus of the tibia, the lateral malleolus of the fibula and the talus.
