The Calenberg Compact Bearing S 65 is an unreinforced elastomeric bearing with smooth contact surfaces. The main component is an ageing-resistant EPDM elastomeric material with a hardness of 65 ± 5 Shore A. The material is weather and ozone resistant.

Premium grade rubber material and a high quality standard in our elastomer bearings guarantee freedom from maintenance, a long service life and consequently absolute damage-free construction.

The extremely high bearing loads of the bearings enable filigree and cost-effective structural designs. Elastomer bearings do not require maintenance and do not need to be replaced if correctly dimensioned and installed. The designers also secure the material reserves in the event of unforeseen load conditions.

Approval no. Z-16.32-474, issued by DIBt Berlin.
