Home > Companies > ACE Fabreeka UK > ACE Fabreeka SA-47® Light Stress Bearing Pad

Light stress bearing pad with a synthetic and rubber body.

Features and benefits:

  • Enhanced compressive strength, stiffness, and tensile strength when compared to other bearing pad materials such as standard neoprene and nitrile.
  • Deflection can be tailored to suit the application.
  • Cost effective.
  • Reduces electrolytic action between dissimilar metal elements.
  • Suitable for vibration isolation and shock reduction in structural applications.
  • Distributes load between two structural elements evenly.
  • Accommodates non-parallel, loadbearing surfaces.
  • Allows for small rotations.
  • Wide range of thicknesses available.


Used in construction applications such as structural bearings, precast/ pre-stressed concrete structures and bridges, masonry pads and railway tie pads. Other applications include:

  • Concrete and precast joints.
  • Heavy industry and pipelines.
  • Bridges, tunnels and other infrastructure.

Not for use with moment connections.
