About Armadillo Noise & Vibration
‘Armadillo Noise & Vibration originally specialised in the design and manufacture of a wide range of products to control structure borne vibration. Solutions offered range from isolated machine bases, building protection from underground train lines to custom bearings for cinema auditoriums. While designing these systems we regularly had to accommodate movement between two elements. Invariably this required the design of PTFE slide bearings. Armadillo PTFE slide bearings are compact, high load capacity and offer exceptional working life spans.
Armadillo developed the Armatherm™ product line in 2004. The range of Armatherm™ products now addresses issues with balcony and canopy connections, masonry support systems, cladding fixings, column bases and structural roof penetrations including parapets. In short, any structural connection which bridges the thermal envelope is covered by our Armatherm™ range.
With over 50 years combined experience in the isolation industry our engineers have a deep understanding of client requirements. Often applications cannot be satisfied with standard off the shelf solutions. We are happy to discuss individual project requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us.’
Structural bearing pads, slide plates and thermal break pads are all available by the Armadillo team. Our products have been installed on structures and equipment worldwide to transmit load, accommodate expansion and prevent thermal bridging. The structural connections group is a collaborative, design-build partner who can assist with your bearing design or help to determine the extent of thermal bridging heat loss on building envelope performance including thermal modelling and structural design calculations.
Noise & Vibration
The Armadillo Noise and Vibration team offer products and services that solve problems due to machine induced, structutal or ground borne sources of vibration. Engineering support includes; finite element analysis, structural design and vibration. We work closely with A/E firms, acoustical consultants, OEMs and directly with the end users to recommend vibration isolation solutions for a wide array of applications.
