French term or phrase: capot amortisseur
Patent to do with transport of nuclear waste:

"De préférence, ledit emballage comporte des moyens amortisseurs, préférentiellement des capots amortisseurs agencés aux extrémités de l’emballage. "

"Sur la figure le fond et le couvercle ne sont pas visibles car ils sont recouverts respectivement par deux capots amortisseurs de chocs montés aux extrémités du corps d’emballage."

"damping cap" is the best I can imagine... anyone (Tony? Chris? or someone else of course!) got a better suggestion?
