Lift support is a type of gas spring which is different from typical metal spring. Its working principle is that a compressed gas is contained in the cylinder and compressed by the piston to produce elastic force. Lift Supports are the most common gas springs in the marketplace.
Lift Support is an industrial fitting with many functions, including support, braking, height and angle adjustment. It consists of the following parts: pressure cylinder, piston rod, piston, guide sleeve, sealing,the filler (inert gas or oil and gas mixture) and other components, which can meet individual requirements for the opening, closing, tilting and damping of flaps.
It has the following advantages：
- Easy fitting
- Compact structure
- Definable spring characteristic and extension speed
- Integrated damping
