Gas struts Cover Weight Calculator

How do I measure the weight of the cover plate?

Before calculate the force required for a gas strut, you need to know the weight of the cover.

To measure the weight of the cover plate, it is ideal to use a scale. However, if weighing the cover directly is not feasible or convenient, the following steps can still help determine its weight:

  • Please open the cover plate and ensure it is in a horizontal position.
  • Make sure that the very edge of the cover plate’s center point is placed in the middle of the scale.
  • The number on the scale, multiply by 2 is the approximate weight of the cover plate.
  • If the cover plate cannot be directly placed on the scale, a support such as a stick can be placed on the scale. Don’t forget minus the weight of stick.
  • Alternatively, a person can stand on the scale and lift the very edge of the cover plate’s center point with their hands to calculate the added weight.
  • If the cover plate is closed in the horizontal position, lift the cover plate slightly until the entire edge of the cover plate is fully lifted. Calculate the added weight.

Please note that for accurate measurements, ensure the weight of the cover plate is measured on a stable platform and that you maintain balance while standing on the scale.
