Novibra Type 3″ COMP-55

Product code: 3" Comp-55

Metalastik type Rectangular SAW Mountings and Novibra Type 3″ COMP

Widely used for suspending engines on road vehicles and may also be employed as springs for vibratory equipment.

Rectangular SAW mounts are also known as “Sandwich” mountings because they feature a rubber section sandwiched between plates of metal. This arrangement allows a large difference between the compression and shear stiffnesses, thus providing the potential to ‘tune’ a mounting system by rotating the mountings. These mountings are commonly installed in a ‘Vee’ formation to utilise this feature.


  • Available with plate or stud fixings.
  • Can be loaded in compression or shear, or a combination of both, for example in a ‘Vee’ arrangement.
  • Can be manufactured with or without interleaves to change the ratio of shear to compression stiffness.
