A High Energy Level Pneumatic Energy Absorbing Bumper 730029

A new concept in pneumatic energy absorbing bumper systems for motor vehicles has been developed, the dynamic testing of which demonstrates considerable promise in dissipating large blocks of energy in an accident situation. Having a flexible front section molded from a castable elastomer, the pressurized system is equipped with relief valves that open at a predetermined pressure during collision, thus dissipating energy.
