Installation Instructions

Bearing pads are used to distribute concentrated loads and reactions over the bearing area and to allow limited horizontal and rotational movements to provide stress relief. Their use has proven beneficial and often may be necessary for satisfactory performance of precast concrete structures. Bearing pads provide stress relief due to a combination of slippage and pad deformation.
