Abstract : The patent application relates to a mount for a chair, piece of machinery, etc. that is exposed to rapid low-acceleration slams and intermittent high-acceleration shocks. The mount has a spring which absorbs the rapid slams and a hydraulic or pneumatic dashpot which absorbs the shocks; the dashpot does not function over the first increment of travel of the mount, thereby allowing rapid recycling of the mount under conditions of rapidly applied slams.
