Vibration control and structural expansion bearings, or slide bearings, accommodate thermal expansion and structural rotation in buildings, bridges and pipe supports. Benchmark designs and manufactures four types of expansion / slide bearings for a wide range of applications. The expansion bearings are supplied as an upper and lower unit prepared to be tack or stitch welded in the field.

For proper bearing design, several questions must be answered.

We require the following information to prepare a quote for Slide bearings:

  • The maximum available bearing area – depth, width and height.
  • The maximum expansion expected and in which direction.
  • The maximum load on each bearing.
  • The maximum beam rotation in radians at the bearing area.
  • If any slots/holes are required, a bolt pattern must be supplied.

Benchmark works closely with engineers and construction companies worldwide on projects such as:

WWT Plants
Pedestrian Walkways
Convention Centers
Industrial Machine Isolation
Nuclear Processing Facilities

Public Works Projects
Parking Garages
Chemical Plants
Oil Refineries
Steel Mills/Crane Rails
