Civil Bearings


Technoslide (Pty) Ltd and Bearing Technologies CC both derive from Glacier Bearings who manufactured structural bearings in Pinetown from 1967 to 1998. In 1998, the owners of Glacier Bearings, the T&N Group, sold the Company to Federal Mogul Inc and some senior staff and other employees then founded Technoslide (Pty) Ltd who continued with the same business activities embracing a wide range of plain bearings. Bearing Technologies CC was formed in 1999 to supply structural bearings and provides specialised technical services in the field of tribology to Technoslide (Pty) Ltd. It is headed by Mike Roseblade who was Technical Manager of Glacier from 1967-1984 and subsequently MD of Glacier SA and then Glacier Structural Products in UK and Germany.


The range of Bearing Technologies structural bearings includes Pot bearings, laminated rubber bearings, uplift, pipe line supports, linear and point rockers. All bearings are designed in accordance with the provisions of BS5400 Pt 9.1:1983 and conform to the requirements of COLTO where applicable.
