Armatherm, a Brand of Armadillo Noise & Vibration Limited

Overview

Armadillo Noise & Vibration originally specialized 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.
The mechanics behind structural vibration isolation are very similar to methods of preventing Thermal Bridging in structural connections. To address this growing problem in building construction, Armadillo developed the Armathermâ„¢ product line in 2004. The range of Armathermâ„¢ products now addresses issues with balcony and canopy connections, masonry support systems, cladding fixings and structural roof penetrations including parapets. In short, any structural connection which bridges the thermal envelope is covered by our Armathermâ„¢ ange.
With over 50 years combined experience in the isolation industry our engineers have a deep understanding of client requirements. Often applications can not be satisfied with standard off the shelf solutions. We are happy to discuss individual project requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us.
