Improved fatigue and corrosion resistance: SPS structures eliminate the majority of fatigue and corrosion prone details.
In SPS structures, the elastomer core dissipates strain energy over a large area, reducing load concentrations that lead to permanent deformations and cracks. SPS offers more robust structures with a longer working life.
Reduced weight and through-thickness
SPS structures have lower substructure costs, increase internal volume and, in height restricted structures, allow extra floors.
The visco-elastic polyurethane core allows SPS plates to provide significant damping to structure borne vibration and noise. "Walking on SPS sounds like you are walking on concrete".
