Structural accessories

Freyssinet manufactures and supplies a wide range of accessories (bearings, expansion joints, etc.) and earthquake protection devices that comply with the most stringent standards.

Structural accessories can be categorized into three families based on their main function:

bearings, which transfer major vertical loads, such as between a deck and its piers,
expansion joints, which ensure a continuous road surface, such as between a main deck and its end spans,
earthquake protection devices, which reduce the transmission of inertial forces, such as between a deck and its piers during a seismic event.

These solutions offer numerous benefits, particularly with regard to installation and durability.
