Leading the world in
energy absorption

About Oleo

For over sixty years Oleo has been involved in design and manufacture of energy absorption technology for a variety of industries and continues to innovate and patent new products.

Oleo provide the leading energy absorption solution

Oleo has developed a wide range of standard products and services and can produce bespoke items to suit our client's requirements. We will work with you to ensure that an energy absorption solution is developed to your specification; we provide solutions – not just products.

Oleo is ISO 9001 accredited and comply with other specialist standards used in the rail, elevator and crane industries. Our rail products conform to all European and international standards including UIC and AAR.

Oleo provide leading energy absorption solutions for many areas, including industry, elevator, rail etc. Out product range includes energy absorption buffers, crash and safety buffers, absorbers, arrestors and more. Oleo products give ultimate protection, reducing impact forces to safe levels in potentially life threatening impacts.

We take our environmental responsibility very seriously with all systems and processes approved to ISO 14001. Our buffers can have a 20-30 year life span (with maintenance) and 95% of the buffer can be recycled. With continuing research and development Oleo is committed to delivering new products and solutions which are environmentally friendly.

Oleo's Mission

Oleo is committed to creating industry leading energy absorption solutions by taking a long term view of investments in research and development, our people, products, services and facilities.

Oleo will continue to be world class engineers supporting all our stakeholders by providing energy absorption solutions that are innovative, value enhancing and best in class to a global customer base.

Oleo's Products and Services

Oleo products are designed to protect people and equipment from forces generated either during normal running, or from an impact resulting from equipment failure or operator error. Traditionally Oleo has achieved this using hydraulic energy absorption systems combined with a gas return spring to give unsurpassed energy dissipation and recovery.

Energy absorption technology generates relatively high forces, even during light impacts, Oleo technology generates lowest possible forces at all impact velocities, which means that the equipment being protected is less likely to suffer from chronic problems such as fatigue, wear, and contact damage and noise. This results in reduced downtime, maintenance, replacement and disposal costs.

Oleo's line of products such as buffers, absorbers, arrestors give ultimate protection, reducing impact forces to safe levels in potentially life threatening impacts.

We will work with you to ensure that an energy absorption solution is developed to your specification; we provide solutions – not just products.
