Isolation bearings are used to isolate entire buildings or elements such as walls, steelwork or columns. Every bearing is bespoke, designed to accept the specific loads and compress to isolate as required. A typical application would be to prevent vibrations from a nearby railway or underground line entering the building structure or to support raked seating in a cinema. Spring bearings are used to isolate against low frequency vibration sources and impact. They can be made using single or multiple springs and low natural frequencies of less than 2.0Hz can be achieved. This is often necessary if the structural resonances are low, typically requiring the isolator natural frequency to be lower still. We design our bearings to last the life of the building. We design our bearings to function with consistent performance without the need for any inspection or maintenance.
