Welding: Generally, tack weld with the electric arc along the outside edge for a solid installation. Wherever full weld is desired, a one-quarter inch weld is used along the sides of the base plate to the substrate. The full weld would prevent seepage of water between the Bronzphite® bearing and the support structure.


Installation in Concrete: When installing Bronzphite® slide plate assemblies in concrete, anchor bolts will be integrated into the base plates for attachment to either the concrete form rebar structure or simply within the concrete itself.
