Vibration-Attenuation Products

Structural Bearings

Structural BearingsTico structural bearings provide a maintenance-free resilient barrier for the isolation of structures from ground borne noise and vibration.

In addition, our low-friction sliding bearings are designed to accommodate large laterial movements in structures, particularly when associated with high vertical loads.

Tico® Bondslip Sliding Bearings

For large lateral movenents with high vertical loads

Tico Bondslip low-friction sliding bearings will accommodate large lateral movements in structures, particularly when associated with high vertical loads. These PTFE/nylon faced bearings provide a long maintenance-free life with excellent resistance to wear, weathering and chemicals.

  • Upper member: steel plate with low-friction nylon face
  • Lower member: steel plate with PTFE face
  • Long life maintenance-free sliding surfaces
  • Excellent wear, weather and chemical resistance
