Suitable for a variety of applications, we have a range of elastomeric bearing pads.
Due to their ability to absorb brief external force, as well as force from vertical loads, bearing pads can be used to isolate and nullify vibrations, including in applications such as vibration and shock isolation railway tie pads.
Elastomeric bearing pads are one of the key components of a bridge’s flexibility. Distributing loads to the substructure, this facilitates natural movements, without creating harmful stress. If a bridge undergoes excessive amounts of irregular stress, it could collapse.
Bridge bearings also spread the stress loads, reducing wear and tear to the materials used in the building process. Over time, this saves on costs.
Industrial elastomeric building pads work in a similar way: by spreading the stress of a load across a wider area, this allows regular movement, thus reducing the damage caused over time, while maintaining the integrity of the structure for longer.
