Bridges develop considerable stresses on various component members due to temperature variation, dead and live loads, and wind. Maintaining stress at a minimum (or relieving it entirely) by permitting controlled movement has been a job performed by Lubrite bearings for more than 80 years. The lubricants provide a low coefficient of friction and are capable of withstanding extremely heavy static loads over long periods of time. Lubrite bearings offer the ultimate in ease of installation and economy of operation, and in many installations have proven that they are capable of outlasting the bridge itself.
