Diaphragm shock damping system SoftStop
Softstop® - dynamic impact protection system.
Softstop® is an energy absorbing system which protects wehicles, objects, persons or structures against damage caused by collision or impact.
Softstop® gives slightly on impact, absorbing the energy of the collision, which an ordinary system is unable to do. The difference in impacts is impressive. The system consists of one or more bases on which tubular bollards or brackets can be mounted.
The Softstop® protection system limits damage and possible personal injury to an absolute minimum, tahnks to its triple protection:
1. Protection of drivers and their wehicles: Drivers who collide with Softstop® have a "soft landing". The chanses of driver injury or vehicle damage are reduced because the protection system gently gives.
2. Protection of the objects/structure needing protection: Softstop® is installed at a sertain distance from the object/structure that needs to be protected and only moves to a limited extent. As a result, Softstop® never comes in contact with protected object, so the chances of damaging it are minimized. Protection can be guaranteed for objects, vehicles, building structures and personnel.
3. Protection of the actual Softstop® system: Softstop® continues to absorb impact, time after time. In the unlikely event the object needing protection has been hit and damaged, the damage is always visible. But Softstop® will not be damaged by a collision and continues to absorb shocks time after time.
Softstop® retains its performance under extreme temperatures (from -40 °C to +70 °C). This is an important argument in unheated industrial buildings or outdoors. By comparison, plastic becomes brittle from -7 °C.
Softstop® resistance and performance has been fully tested by TÜV.
