Project Description

Collision Buffers

Emergency collision buffers manufactured by ourselves are ensuring that visitors to Universal Studios’ Jurrasic Park water rides can enjoy their adventure experience in comfort and safety.

Designed to absorb impact if bumped from behind, the buffers are attached centrally to the rear of glass fibre boats, each of which transports approximately 25 visitors through water rides.

The manufacture of these buffers highlighted several adhesion challenges. These focused on not just the construction of the actual buffer itself, but also on its attachment to the material for fixing onto the fibreglass boats.
