Launch Over Systems / Incremental Launch Applications

Pot Bearing launch-over system

Granor has specialist technology allowing incremental launch of bridge structures over the final permanent pot bearings. This technique takes away the cost of temporary support bearings and cuts out the final jacking step.

Incremental launch slide pads

Sliding bearing pads are used during the incremental launch of bridge spans. The elastomeric pads have a low friction surface and can be repeatedly fed through until the bridge has been slid to its final position.
