The Comet CSC’s structural bearings are restraining devices used in structures, bridges and buildings, in order to convey loads and restrain set degrees of freedom of movement.
Our supports are confined elastomeric disc structural bearings. Rotations around any horizontal axis are ensured by the deformability of a non-reinforced rubber disc, or bearing, confined within a steel monolithic base (pot).
In addition to vertical compressive loads, these supports bearings are capable of transferring forces and/or permit sliding in one or more directions of the horizontal plane depending on the different bearing types.
In movable bearing types, the mutual sliding of two plane surfaces, one of stainless steel and the other of PTFE, ensures the bearing's translation.
