Penn Transit resilient wheels feature an elastic layer between the steel tire and wheel center. This layer is comprised of individual rubber or ring elements that are manufactured to strict quality standards that feature exceptional damping properties.
The wheel’s external shunts provide conductivity around the rubber elements, and the divided wheel body allows for easy dismantling and re-fitting of the wheel tire. In some instances, those operations may be performed under the vehicle, saving substantial time and maintenance costs. At the end of the lifecycle, only the tire and rubber blocks need to be replaced.
