Rib & Tunnel Design
A unique geometry of ribs and tunnels lets our corner guards and edge guards provide impact protection without direct contact to corners and edges.
This ribbed design also absorbs impact, dissipates energy, and dampens vibration over a wide frequency range. And because our corner guards and edge guards flex on impact, they reduce shock well below the damage boundaries of most products. In fact, Western’s design is so effective, it’s received patents in the U.S.A., Canada and Mexico.
