  • Patent number: 10492557
    Abstract: A helmet with two layers configured to slide with respect to each other is provided. The surface of one or both layers contains a sliding facilitator to improve slidability between the two layers. The sliding facilitator may be any one or a combination of (i) an organic polymer, a polysiloxane and a surfactant; (ii) an organic polymer and a copolymer based on a polysiloxane and an organic polymer; or (iii) a non-elastomeric cross-linked polymer obtained or obtainable by subjecting a polysiloxane and an organic polymer to a cross-linking reaction.

  • Patent number: 10271602
    Abstract: The invention relates to a connection arrangement (6) adapted to connect a first (2) and a second part (3) slidably arranged in relation to each other. The connection arrangement (6) is characterized in that said connection arrangement (6) is adapted to allow the sliding movement between the first (2) and the second part (3) in all directions. The arrangement (6) comprises a connection member (7) directly or indirectly connected to at least one of the first part and the second part (2, 3) and a device creating a spring force and/or a damping force (8) during sliding movement between the first and second part (2, 3) adapted to be connected with or to cooperate with said connection member (7).

  • Publication number: 20130040524
    Abstract: The invention according to the present invention relates to an intermediate layer (1) of friction decreasing material placed between two layers (2, 3). The intermediate layer (1) is adapted to create a sliding movement between the layers (2, 3) when a force (K) is applied and a tangential force component (KT) shears the layers. The friction decreasing material comprises fibers (F).

  • Patent number: 8316512
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a locking device (2) for fixation of the position of an outer layers (4) relatively an inner layer (6) of a protective helmet (3), which protective helmet has a sliding layer (8) arranged between the outer layer and the inner layer, for facilitating displacement of the outer layer relatively the inner layer during an oblique impact towards the protective helmet. The locking device (2) comprises a layer-guiding member (10), that has an upper portion (12), which upper portion (12) is intended to be arranged in an opening (13) in the outer layer (4), and a resilient lower portion (16), extending from the upper portion (12), that in its free end (17) is arranged in connection to the inner layer (6). The present technology also relates to a protective helmet (3) comprising the locking device (2).
