Standard Gas Springs

The standard Gas Springs are often referred to as Gas Shocks, Gas Pistons, or Gas Struts. Gas springs are available in a number of different lengths, forces and variations. They are also available in highly corrosion-resisting material. We use high grade stainless steel for the production of our stainless steel Gas springs. These springs are not only resistant to water, but are commonly found in food, chemical, medical, and salt water applications. Our gas springs are the perfect product to help control the motion of your lid, door or cover. The standard gas spring sits as standard in every tailgate of a car. Each gas spring is pressurized with nitrogen gas and contains a small amount of lubricating oil within the cylinder. Gas springs are used when masses or weights are to be raised, lowered or held without much effort. Unloaded, this spring is always extended. When a force greater than the compressed nitrogen fill pressure is applied, the gas spring pushes together.

As manufacturers, we offer our range of gas springs in various materials:

  • Steel
  • Stainless steel (AISI 304)
  • Stainless steel (AISI 316)

Gas Tension Springs

The throttle cable is always retracted by default. This type works in reverse to standard gas springs. When a force greater than the compressed nitrogen filling pressure is applied, the tension spring pushes out to the maximum extended length. This type of spring is usually used when space reasons, the application of a compression spring is not possible. The throttle cable spring is available in two versions: with end damping and without end damping. We offer the following types of gas tension springs:

  • Gas Tension Spring without damping
  • Gas Tension Spring with damping
