BRIDGE BEARINGS, STRUCTURAL BEARINGS AND CIVIL PRODUCTS
Nova Engineering has supplied high quality Bridge Bearings and Structural Bearings to the South African market since 1964. All bridge bearings are designed to the provisions of BS5400 Part 9, SANS 1806, SANS 10326 and COLTO specifications. All bearings are manufactured at our own premises in Johannesburg.
Nova bridge bearings are designed to safely accommodate the various movements and rotations that are imposed on structures. The main cause of these movements and rotations may be due to some, or all, of the following factors acting on the structure:
- Temperature changes
- Shrinkage and creep
- Foundation movements
- Post stressing
- Live load considerations
Our range of structural bearings includes:
- Pot Bearings
- Elastomeric Bearings
- Line Rocker Bearings
- Structural Bearings
- Tie Anchors
The table below can be used as a guide when choosing the appropriate bridge bearing type for a specific application.
