Paul N. Gardner’s 7000A and 7000D durometer operating stands feature hydraulic dampers designed to smoothly control the durometer’s rate of descent, without jump or stutter. Unlike other mechanical stands that apply an increasing load over time, these stands are said to deliver a load sufficient to overcome the spring force of the durometer without shock in approximately 1 sec. from contact, providing more consistent and accurate readings.

The stands are engineered to fit all PTC durometer styles. The Classic and Ergo durometer models mount right on the stand, and a small mounting knob is including with the e2000 and Pencil durometers. The stands will accept sample materials ranging to 3" (76 mm) in thickness, depending on the height of the durometer used.
