Granor’s Pot Type Structural Bearings are available in three standard configurations.
POTSTAY® - Fixed Type – Provides rotational capacity only.
POTFLOAT® - Free Float Type – Provides both rotational capacity as well as multi directional sliding.
POTGLIDE® - Guided / Sliding Type – Provides rotational capacity, free sliding in one direction only, and is laterally restrained.
Compact – Low overall height.
Compact – Small footprint for significant vertical loads.
Small shift in centre of pressure due to rotation.
Low translational resistance.
Can accommodate lateral loading at same time as translation.
Specials – To accommodate up lift loadings.
Australian Code AS.5100.4 requires that Structural Bearings can be easily removed if such becomes necessary. Traditionally, such is chieved by the use of a top and bottom attachment (distribution) plate cast into the structure, to which the bearing is bolted. This permits the bearing to be “slid” out.
