Foam in an airbag

The patented Windpact Crash Cloud both absorbs energy as it compresses, and dissipates energy through impact vents, before rapidly re-inflating like a spring. By adjusting the type of foam and rate of controlled airflow, the Crash Cloud can be tuned to address a wide range of real-world impacts – from linear to rotational impacts.

The Benefits of Our Impact System

Tunable technology

  • The Crash Cloud is impact foam-agnostic meaning we don’t necessarily care what foam we use as long as it provides the optimal impact solution (please refer to our Proprietary Foam Materials Database on how we make the polyurethane foam material decisions that go into the Crash Cloud).
  • The Crash Cloud can intelligently adjust to the level of impact and solves for a wide range of impacts from linear to rotational impacts.  We are able to optimize our Crash Cloud by utilizing our FEA modeling capabilities.

Repeatable protection

  • Other solutions are limited and oftentimes solve for only one impact scenario.
  • The Crash Cloud enables both the energy absorption system and the user to withstand the multiple impacts that often make up a single event.

Light and comfortable

  • Safety should not be bulky and restrictive.
  • The unique combination of controlled airflow and light open cell foams enables to reduce the weight and size.
  • Produces an energy absorption system that provides great impact protection without restrictions.

Customizable

  • The Crash Cloud is modular and can take on any shape, size, or texture depending on the application. This enables Windpact to provide customizable solutions for each of our clients.
