Elastic Locking Gas Spring
Between the two pressure chambers in the gas spring，there is a special piston / valve system which creates a leak-proof separation locking gas spring. When the valve is open, locking gas spring will provide force assist, ensuring user-friendly motion sequences due to its predefined damping characteristics. When the valve is closed, the gas spring will lock with a slight bounce in the desired position.
The standard locking gas spring is filled with gas and should be installed with the piston rod pointing down.
Advantages of Elastic Locking Gas Spring
Variable elastic locking and optimized weight compensation during lifting, lowering, opening, and closing
Comfortable bouncing and damping of shocks, impacts, or sudden peak loads
Flat spring characteristic curve; i.e., low force increase even for high forces or large strokes
Compact design,so that can be installed in small spaces
Easy mounting due to a variety of end fitting option
Elastic locking in backrest adjustment of swivel chairs or massage chairs
Height adjustment of physician’s stools with foot actuation
Suited for elastic locking of elements where no additional loads need to be held besides the application load
