Versiflex Elastomeric Bearing Assemblies are custom molded using neoprene or natural rubber and are categorized into three basic designs: non-reinforced, laminated and sliding bearing assemblies.
Non-reforced bearing devics are typically recommended for applications with minimal load, rotation and horizontal deflection.
Laminated bearing devices are designed with the addition of internal steel plates to increase the vertical load bearing capacity and the amount of horizontal deflection that can be accomodated by the structure. These devices have the ability to be molded in to any shape or size.
Sliding design devices are used for applications where horizontal displacements exceed two inches. These devices are designed with the addition of a low-friction sliding surface so that a laminated device may accomodate the structural movement.
