The gas spring is a hydropneumatic adjustment element consisting of a pressure tube, piston rod with piston, as well as a suitable end fitting. It is filled with nitrogen, which, under constant pressure, acts on piston cross sections of different sizes, creating a force in the extension direction. This force can be accurately specified through the individual fill pressure.
Among the advantages of these gas springs – compared with mechanical springs – are their defined speed curve and excellent damping properties, which make handling even heavy lids and doors comfortable. Easy mounting, compact dimensions, a flat spring characteristic curve and a very broad selection of available strengths and end fittings round out the positive overall picture of gas springs
In 1962, we were the first company to produce gas springs in series. Since then, we have continuosly expanded our vanguard role. With a comprehensive application spectrum and a broad product line, as well as an annual production of more than 140 million units, we are the world market leader for gas springs and dampers.
