Title
(EN) SHOCK ABSORBENT END CAP FOR TRAYS
(FR) EMBOUT D’EXTRÉMITÉ AMORTISSANT LES CHOCS POUR PLATEAUX
Abstract
(EN)
In one embodiment of the present invention, an end cap is provided in the form of a box with an open top, having a substantially rectangular base and four substantially rectangular sides, each attached to one of four corresponding edges of the base. Th cap open top has interior length and width dimensions providing clearance for a corresponding width and height respectively of a stack of trays. A depth of the inside of the end cap allows insertion of a terminal end of a stack of trays. The end cap is constructed from a shock, absorbent material of thickness and material properties designed to absorb shock for the purpose of protecting the trays and components in the trays. Shock absorbing end caps are placed over both ends of a stack of trays, and the assembly is placed in a dry-pack bag and sealed, and then placed in a cardboard box for transportation.

Dans un mode de réalisation de la présente invention, un embout d’extrémité est prévu et il prend la forme d’un boîtier ayant une extrémité ouverte, ayant une base essentiellement rectangulaire et quatre côtés essentiellement rectangulaires, chacun étant attaché à une des quatre arêtes correspondantes de la base. L’extrémité ouverte de l’embout a des dimensions de longueur et de largeur intérieures apportant un espace pour la largeur et la hauteur correspondantes d’une pile de plateaux, respectivement. La profondeur de l’intérieur de l’embout d’extrémité permet d’insérer une extrémité terminale de la pile de plateaux. L’embout d’extrémité est construit à partir d’un matériau absorbant les chocs présentant une épaisseur et des propriétés de matériau conçues pour absorber les chocs afin de protéger les plateaux et les composants contenus dans les plateaux. Des embouts d’extrémité absorbant les chocs sont placés sur chacune des deux extrémités d’une pile de plateaux et l’ensemble est placé dans un sac sec et fermé, puis placé dans une boîte en carton pour être transporté.
