Recognising the difference between a bearing that will do its job safely and reliably over the life-span of a building and one which does not can make a very significant difference – by avoiding the expense of remedial work and in some cases, legal proceedings.
Superficially, a perfectly good bearing may look no different from one which will fail in service. So here, we provide a brief guide to ensuring that the bearings selected will perform as intended.
At SK Bearings we have always believed that cutting corners on structural and bridge bearings is a false economy. The idea is not a new one – as Shakespeare noted in the Merchant of Venice, ‘The sweetness of low price is long outlasted by the bitterness of poor quality’.
This is why SK Bearings is philosophically committed to the highest standards in computerized design, selecting materials, manufacturing, technical expertise and quality control. SK Bearings come with reliability and quality built-in.
