Engineering - Steel bearings
Protects bridge structures from strong winds and seismic motion
Horizontal bearings are designed to provide a rock-like base for the bridge that absorbs horizontal load generated during a typhoon or earthquake and also protects vehicles and pedestrians during an emergency.
Performance of individual bearings
The design of each individual bearing is tailored to the bridge size and structure and environmental conditions to ensure optimum performance, particularly with respect to load dispersion and displacement tracking.
Suitable for under-beam spans on large and small bridges
Thanks to the impressive design freedom of castings, Nippon Chuzo is able to offer a wide range of horizontal bearings to suit long and short under-beam distances on bridges of all sizes.
