NON-REINFORCED
    ELASTOMERIC BEARING

Optimum construction work quality guaranteed

 
Permanent loads, such as a structure's dead load, variable influences, such as wind, and constraining forces due to factors such as temperature changes, creep, component tolerances or settling cause deformations in structural components. The aforementioned influences inflict damage to structures if no suitable elastomeric bearings are used. Besides cracks and spalling, they can also cause major permanent damage to adjacent components, which will then need to be repaired at considerable expense in terms of time and cost.
 
The elastic effect of the structural bearings transfers forces centrally in structural connections while also compensating for deviations in plane parallelism. Elastomeric bearings systematically absorb shear deformations from non-permanent horizontal impacts.
Advantages for our customers
 
The bearings’ extremely high load capacities allow cost-effective, filigree structural designs to be built. Elastomeric bearings do not require maintenance and do not need to be replaced if correctly dimensioned and installed. The designers also ensure there is extra capacity in the material to absorb unforeseen loads. The service life of construction bearings is equal to the service life of adjacent components as a minimum. Our elastomeric bearings increase the value of the building by avoiding structural damage and eliminating renovation and maintenance costs. Static elastomeric bearings permanently transmit forces, twists and displacements into adjacent components without causing damage.

 
 

Non-reinforced elastomeric bearing

 
 

Short description

bi-Trapez Bearing® is a non-reinforced, profiled elastomeric bearing shape dependent loadable, up to 17.4 N/mm² and with controlled material grade. The main component is an ageing resistant EPDM elastomeric material with a hardness of 65 ± 5 Shore A. The bearing is available in different thicknesses.
bi-Trapez Bearing® provides highly effective insulation against structure-borne sound and vibrations and is permanently elastic. This bearing is primarily used for structural members of all types and for impact sound mitigation in stair and landing components.
 
The bi-Trapez Bearing® can be used in cast in situ concrete as an impact sound stop stair component with a top-side cover.

Approval no. Z-16.32-455, issued by DIBt Berlin

Short description

The profiled, highly age-resistant Cigular® Slab Bearing is made of EPDM. The 10 mm thick deformation bearing with low shear resistance is bearable up to 1.5 N/mm² design load.
Cigular® Slab Bearings can absorb shear deformations in any direction including those in the longitudinal direction of the wall that pose the greatest threat to brickwork and are the cause of shear cracks in ceiling slabs.
 
Approval no. Z-16.32-479, issued by DIBt Berlin

Short description

The Compact Bearing CR 2000 is an unreinforced deformation bearing. The main component is a chloroprene material with a hardness of 70 ± 5 Shore A. The bearing is available in different thicknesses and bearable up to 20 N/mm². The honeycombed bearing surface results in an even distribution of stress over the cross section. The transverse and splitting tensile stresses produced in the adjoining components are reduced compared with smooth elastomeric bearing plates.
 
The approval is applied.

Short description

The Compact Bearing S 65 is an unreinforced elastomeric bearing with smooth contact surfaces. The main component is an ageing resistant EPDM elastomeric material with a hardness of 65 ± 5 Shore A. The material is weather and ozone resistant. The unreinforced deformation bearing is loadable depending on format up to a compressive stress of 14 N/mm² and different thicknesses are available.
Compact Bearings S 65 are used in all areas of construction as permanently elastic articulating connection elements. In building structures, their main use is as point bearings for providing elastic support to beams and joists, and as strip bearings under decks and walls.
