Gas springs consists of a pressurised cylinder containing high-pressure nitrogen and of a telescopic stem.
The stem carries out an axial force due to the gas pressure by acting as a spring. Its main performance consists in exercising a force that is basically constant for the entire telescopic movement.
Gas springs are mainly used in supporting, dampening the movements and facilitating the opening of rear doors and engine bonnets, and they feature smaller dimensions compared to traditional mechanisms with mechanical springs.
Products are also available featuring the possibility of intermediate blockings for applications in vehicle seats mechanism as well as in furniture and sofa chairs.
