Delivered products

LASTO-FLONBLOCK Type Ga bearings were selected to satisfy the building’s particular requirements. These reinforced elastomeric bearings feature a PTFE sliding surface vulcanized onto one side, and a separate sliding plate with a stainless steel surface, to facilitate sliding movements. This type of bearing is ideal for absorbing high vertical loads while facilitating torsion and horizontal displacements in the longitudinal and transverse directions, with the minimum possible friction.
