Stravibase SEB* is a bespoke structural elastomer bearing for the structural isolation of buildings and other structures.
Stravibase SEB comprise a series of elastomer pads laminated to formwork on one or both sides. These bearings can be designed to meet natural frequencies between 6Hz and 20Hz, and can be manufactured in a variety of dimensions to accommodate acoustic design loads up to 10MPa.
Ease of installation
Lifespan of greater than 50 years
Versatility – Stravibase SEB can be tailor made to accommodate all
types of construction applications such as load bearing masonry,
reinforced concrete frames and steel constructions
High lateral stiffness providing greater lateral stability
Natural frequency required
Working dead and live loads
Lateral and turning forces
Practical information such as contact area
Fixing locations if required
*Previously known as CDM-SEB
Frozen Bearing Technology
Frozen Bearing Technology (FBT) technique allows us to replace elastomer bearings such as Stravibase SEB without disturbing the building’s structure; which may become necessary if there is a significant change in the imposed load.
