Stravibase VHS stands for very high stress bearing and is used for Building Base Isolation.
Stravibase VHS consists of successive layers of high resilience elastomer pads and steel plates and can be accommodated with structural failsafes if necessary. This solution is designed to meet natural frequencies between 7 Hz and 16 Hz.
Stravibase VHS is the ideal solution to support very important loads whilst being significantly smaller in plan dimensions than traditional elastomer bearings.
High Load Capacity
This solution is suitable to support important loads under reduced footprint.
For easy identification and quick installation, all Stravibase VHS bearings are shipped and labelled individually.
Durability & Performance
A wide range of elastomers and dimensions are proposed by CDM Stravitec to allow for different performances.
Replaceable & Inspectable
StravibaseVHS can be replaced at any time. It is the ideal solution for buildings with different foreseen intended uses.
Frozen Bearing Technology
Frozen Bearing Technology (FBT) technique allows us to replace elastomer bearings such as Stravibase VHS without disturbing the building’s structure; which may become necessary if there is a significant change in the imposed load.
