  • Patent number: 10060154
    Abstract: A protective barrier includes a hollow plastic rail including first and second ends, a rounded metallic member disposed on the first end and a second metallic member disposed on the second end. The rounded metallic member includes a first opening for receiving the first end of the hollow plastic rail, a first anchoring mechanism for anchoring the rounded metallic member and the first end of the hollow plastic rail to a surface, and a rounded protrusion disposed on an outer surface of the rounded metallic member for receiving a force of impact and deflecting the force of impact away from the rounded metallic member. The second metallic member includes a second opening for receiving the second end of the hollow plastic rail and a second anchoring mechanism for anchoring the second metallic member and the second end of the hollow plastic rail to the surface.

  • Patent number: 9732485
    Abstract: A column protection apparatus includes a number of impact absorbing members, each impact absorbing member including a protrusion and a protrusion receiving opening. The protrusion of each impact absorption member is inserted into the protrusion receiving opening of another, different impact absorption member such that a column-receiving opening is formed through the impact absorbing members.

  • Patent number: 9644393
    Abstract: An impact absorbing barrier includes a plurality of posts and a plurality of rails. Each post of the plurality of posts includes an impact absorption mechanism. Each rail of the plurality of rails includes a first end coupled to a first post of the plurality of posts and a second end coupled to a second, different post of the plurality of posts. The coupling between the first end and the first post and the coupling between the second end and the second post cause at least some of a force of a collision on the first post to be transferred to the impact absorption mechanism of the second post.

  • Patent number: 8915670
    Abstract: An impact absorption apparatus includes a force transfer member including a base and a sidewall extending from the base, the base including an opening, a shock absorber disposed within the force transfer member and resting on the base, the shock absorber including a through hole, a plate disposed within the force transfer member and resting on the shock absorber, the plate including a through hole, and a fastener that extends through the base opening, the shock absorber through hole, and the plate through hole, the fastener including an end protruding from the base opening, the fastener end configured to secure the force transfer member to a support surface. The force transfer member is configured so that when an impact force is applied to the force transfer member, the force is transferred from force transfer member to the shock absorber.
