Elastomeric Bearing Pads




Elastomeric bridge bearing Pads are commonly used for bridge bearing. There are several different types of bridge bearings that include neoprene bearing pads, Steel laminated  elastomeric bearings, etc. These are all generally referred to as bridge bearing pads in the construction industry. Internal structure consists of a sandwich of mild steel plates and rubber, moulded as one unit. Elastomeric bearing pads compress on vertical load and accommodate horizontal rotation and lateral shear movement. Elastomeric bearing pads are the most economical solution used in construction of large span bridges and buildings. Elastomeric Bearing pads can resist the vibrations from the earth.
