METROLOAD Fibre Reinforced Load Bearing Pads

METROLOAD Fibre Reinforced Load Bearing Pads are manufactured using recycled high-quality tyres resulting in an economical and environmentally friendly product. The fully vulcanised rubber has inclusion of majorly dispersed fibres creating a unique compound that exhibits outstanding strength and durability. METROLOAD can withstand harsh conditions like exposure to ozone and low temperatures. This product is commonly used in construction applications, prestress concrete bridges, buildings, machinery and equipment foundations.

 

USES

Bearing pads have a range of applications and are commonly used as handrail bearing pads, lighting standard pad seats, vibration isolation railway tie pads and in bridge bearing masonry along with other applications. If you are unsure whether this product is right for you, feel free to give us a call on  01702 548800 and discuss your requirements with one of our many experts.

 

MATERIAL COMPOSITION

The material is reinforced with synthetic fibre during the construction process of the sheet, increasing internal strength considerably. This unique process adds enhanced levels of tensile and compression strength, durability, tear resistance, stiffness and superior weather and ozone resistance. This could not be achieved without the fibre reinforcement.
