TENS RUBBER bearings are able to transfer vertical and lateral loads between the superstructure and the substructure; they allow displacements in all directions and rotations about any axis thanks to the rubber’s elastic deformation.
TR bearings are usually made of alternating rubber layers and steel sheets or, alternatively, of rubber only. The bearing is realized through vulcanization.

Request information

TENS POT bearings can adapt to most of structures and are able to transfer vertical and horizontal loads between the superstructure and substructure and allow rotations around any horizontal axis in the standard range of ± 0.01 rad (on request up to 0.02) and without limitation around the vertical axis.

Request information

TENS SPHERICAL bearings can satisfy high performance requirements and are able to transfer vertical and horizontal loads between the superstructure and the substructure, designed in order to allow the correct transfer of loads between the different structural elements, and to guarantee, at the same time, the realization of displacements and rotations according to the design.
