Gas springs

The range offers two types of gas springs – with hydraulic and dynamic damping. Gas springs with dynamic damping can be installed in any position whereas gas springs with hydraulic dumping should be installed with piston rod positioned downwards, to make them work properly. Both types have their respective applications. The quality of the gas springs has also been confi rmed through certifi cation according to ISO 9001:2000, ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 14000 standards. The strut function is tested and guaranteed in a temperature range of – 30 °C to +80 °C. Every type of gas spring must withstand 40,000 cycles of expansion and compression at a temperature of 20 °C within the framework of the fatigue tests as well as hundreds of additional tests at +90 °C and -20 °C. The discharge force must not fall by more than 12% after the completion of the tests. The protective layer limits the occurrence of corrosion.
