GUIDED & LOAD BEARINGS
Guided Bearings And Load BearingsBridge Bearings
Combined vertical loads and horizontal forces can be transmitted with restraining structures. When horizontal forces are high, it is often more economically efficient to direct the horizontal forces into the substructure by means of horizontal-load bearings and guide bearings. Horizontal-load bearings transmit longitudinal and/or transverse forces. Guide bearings permit both the bearing of horizontal loads in one axis and horizontal movement in the other axis.
In addition, vertical movements can also be optionally absorbed by both bearings to meet specific structural requirements. One substantial advantage is that horizontal-load bearings absorb the horizontal forces even under changing load conditions, thus dispensing with additional structural measures (position stabilization with wedges etc.).
Horizontal-load bearings and guide bearings are manufactured according to EN 1337 – 8.

AIRPORT ROAD WEST BRIDGE BEARING REPLACEMENT – BELFAST
Like all highway structures, bridges have a significant but still limited life span. Bearings offer the structure freedom to move without causing additional stress, but ultimately this stress gets translated to repetitive movements within the bearing that can cause wear over time.AIRPORT ROAD WEST BRIDGE BEARING REPLACEMENT – BELFAST
