Civil & Precast

Low Friction Bearing Strip

The Low Friction Bearing Strip is designed to allow
movement between load-bearing elements and the support structure.
The smooth upper face of the strip allows the precast floor
slab to move or rotate slightly with temperature or shrinkage movements, while the ribbed bottom face grips the bearing surface, preventing the strip from working its way out under cyclic movements.

KEY FEATURES

  • Design allows precast floor slabs to slide on the top surface of the strip, while the underside firmly grips the wall or beam.
  • Ribbed underside ensures that the Low Friction Bearing Strip does not work out as the supporting floor goes through daily temperature cycles.
  • Made in 2.4m lengths of 100% recyclable impact resistant plastic.
  • Should be used with a grouting mortar when there are major irregularities in the bearing surface.
