igubal® spherical bearing components for modern façade elements

The demand for high functionality in modern buildings is constantly growing: higher energy efficiency, modern design, longer service life and zero maintenance with reduced costs.
More and more movable façade elements are used and environmental impacts pose a great challenge to the corrosion and weather resistance of the used materials. With igubal® spherical bearing components, igus® offers machine elements made of compounded high-performance polymers for indoor and outdoor applications. They are therefore particularly suitable for slat mountings, for example in the field of exterior façades and photovoltaic systems, and can be installed dry and without additional lubricants at temperatures from -30° to +80°C.
 
Other advantages and features of the above- mentioned products are:

Delivery: from stock

Free of maintenance and corrosion

Lifetime predictable

Resistance to dirt and dust

Internal and external thread

Vibration-damping
