Tico®structural bearings provide a maintenance-free resilient barrier for the isolation of structures from ground borne noise and vibration.
In addition, our low-friction sliding bearings are designed to accommodate large lateral movements in structures, particularly when associated with high vertical loads.
Tico®Bondslip Sliding Bearings
For large lateral movements with high vertical loads
Tico® Bondslip low-friction sliding bearings will accommodate large lateral movements in structures, particularly when associated with high vertical loads. These PTFE/nylon faced bearings provide a long maintenance-free life with excellent resistance to wear, weathering and chemicals.
- Upper member: steel plate with low-friction nylon face
- Lower member: steel plate with PTFE face
- Long life maintenance-free sliding surfaces
- Excellent wear, weather and chemical resistance
