A bumper is a structure connected to or integrated with the front and rear ends of a motorcar, to absorb impact in a minor collision, ideally minimizing repair prices.
Automobile bumpers feature protruding shrouds of plastic or metal, referred to as bumper covers, that surround energy-absorbing materials. they're designed to absorb impact to the front and rear of vehicles and minimize low-speed collision injury.
Though U.S. law specifies bumper height and impact resistance, not all automobile bumpers are similar. Not by a long shot! Here are the fundamental types.
Standard Bumper: Common on passenger vehicles. it's no steps or hitches, simply a paint-matched plastic cowl containing energy absorbing mechanisms.
Step Bumper: SUVs, trucks and a few cars have bumpers with a step-shaped cutout within the center, just below the license plate. These bumpers typically have holes for installation of ball hitches.
Cowboy Bumper: These tall, heavy bumpers typically have chrome plating and are most frequently seen on older trucks. They’re created to be noticed and tow heavy trailers.
Tube Bumper: generally installed on jeeps and lifted trucks, tube bumpers forgo the plastic-shroud. Instead, they admit a frame of professional quality steel tubing to lessen collision injury.
