Elastomeric bearings are one of the types of bridge bearings that can be found in our product catalogue. In the range of elastomeric bearings we offer, you will find a variety of types to choose from, including neoprene and laminated bearings, all of which are used in the construction industry. As these bearings play an important role in supporting structures, they must meet certain design standards and have reliable load-bearing capabilities. These are taken into account at Technoslide during the manufacturing process.
Bearings are designed to bear their designed loads and so it is important to choose a bearing that caters to the stresses and strains of the application at hand. Elastomeric bearings must be able to handle various movements that result from temperature fluctuations, contraction, expansion, shrinkage, earth movement and stress or strain. Buildings with steel frames and steel bridges require elastomeric bearings to provide support and handle movement effectively.
We stock various types of elastomeric bearings for our customers. BA type bearings are designed to manage and support low-friction sliding movements in two directions. These bearings perform well at high temperatures (up to 250 °C) and limited movement. The load-bearing capacity ranges from 100 to 2500 kN.
BAR-type elastomeric bearings are ideal for small rotational movements and sliding movements. These bearings perform well at low temperatures and have a load-bearing capacity of between 30 and 250 kN. We also stock BR-type elastomeric bearings. These are laminated rubber bearings that support medium- or short-span structures. They perform well at moderate temperatures. The more lamination on the bearing, the more it restricts movement. These bearings have a load-bearing capacity of between 200 and 3 000 kN.
We have extensive experience in the design and manufacture of elastomeric bearings. We make use of the best quality bearing materials and can custom design bearings according to your specifications. We have been serving various industries, including the mining, automotive, construction, maritime, petrochemical, civil, and materials handling industries since 1998.
