Bridge Bearing PAD


We, Smartsign and Road Furniture Ltd, we do supply Elastomeric Bridge Bearing Pads for superstructures constructed all across Kenya. Based on the requirements, we do supply bridge pads for all sizes as per KeNHa and Standards of Kenya with the required load carring capacity.

The Bridge Bearing pads are placed in between the bridge beams and the vertical supports called piers. The primary function is to absorb the load and distribute superstructure loads to the substructure and allow the superstructure to undergo necessary movements in different environmental conditions without creating any dangerous stresses. Absence of the pads will result in collapse of the bridge. Along with this, the Bridge Bearing Pads extend the life of the bridge by reducing wear and tear on bridge material.

In the Bridge Bearing pads, Steel plates are bonded to the rubber through a vulcanization process, this increases the resistance of the bearings to vertical loads. The steel plates are fully embedded along with the elastomer so that they are protected against corrosion.
