Architectural, Building & Construction

The Challenge:

A leading national supplier of glass and aluminium façades required anti-vibration mounts for a major project. The challenge was to urgently supply a custom part within a short time frame that fitted their design concept and additionally provided excellent weather resistance.

Understanding the Issue:

As the façade for the major building project was a new design and the elastomer vibration mounts were also unique to the project. Our client had various designs for the vibration mounts that were being considered. As the material was exposed to the elements, excellent weather resistance was critical.

The Solution:

CSGtech was able to guide the client to a product that bridged the gap between design and best manufacturing practice. A final material compound was selected that met weather-resistant qualities. Additionally, the material hardness was determined to resist vibration, thermal expansion and contractions of the fixtures.

The Results:

CSGtech was able to supply a cost-effective component to our customer’s specification within the required time frame. Samples, approvals and production stock were all completed within 4 weeks.
