Pad mounts are a low cost isolator, effective for machinery and equipment with higher disturbing frequencies such as small airconditioners, business machines, machine tools, etc. Pad mounts are also an effective shock isolator.
Shearflex, Supershearflex and Corkrib are the standard Embelton pad mounts, offering static deflection up to 3.5mm.
Multiple pad layers, interleaved with metal plates, can be used to offer higher static deflection.
All pad mounts can be bonded to flexplates where load spreading is required, or where the machine base is provided with leveling screws.
Corkrib offers good damping properties and has a flatback option when it needs to be bonded to a flat surface.
Impactamat accoustic flooring underlay can also be used as a pad mount.
