Guided Bearings And Load 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.
