One aspect of the automobile that has changed a whole lot in the couple of decades is the front bumper. They used to be big, shiny and made of metal. When one car hits another the commotion created is catastrophically deafening. Chevrolet from bumpers attest to this durability and strength. Chevrolet has always been a pillar in the history of automobiles and has played a great part in their development.
Some Chevy bumpers, especially front bumpers are constructed with integral crumple zones. Crumple zones are designed to absorb the force of impact; the crumple zones are designed to flex on impact. As the Chevy bumper flexes, the action of the bending bumper converts the kinetic energy of the car into heat. This way further damage to the car is prevented. Nowadays, car front bumpers are constructed out of rubber, plastic, urethane, fiberglass or painted light metal. These are also durable, though not as tough as the heavy steel used in the vintage cars, but technology has provided them with ways to divert danger away from the occupants of the vehicle. Chevrolet is continually finding ways to make them safer and more effective in shielding the owners from danger.
To add class, beauty and added protection to the Chevy front and rear bumpers, many accessories are available to be mounted on it. Bumper covers, bull bars, brush guards, push bars and lots more can be added to the front bumper to make it stronger and sportier. Fog lights and other kind of lights can be placed on custom front bumpers making them, very functional. Bars are also available for mounting to enrich strength and protection.
