Gas Strut Hinge
A gas strut hinge is a type of hinge that uses a gas-filled cylinder to assist in the opening and closing of doors, lids, and other moving parts. The gas strut hinge consists of a housing, a piston rod, and a gas-filled cylinder. When the hinge is opened, the gas inside the cylinder is compressed, which creates a force that helps to lift or lower the object that is attached to the hinge. When the object is closed, the gas is released, and the piston rod is pushed back into the cylinder, creating a controlled closing motion.
Gas strut hinges are commonly used in a variety of applications, including automotive, furniture, and industrial equipment. They can help to reduce the effort required to open and close heavy doors or lids, and they can also provide a soft closing motion that helps to prevent damage or injury. Additionally, gas strut hinges can be customized with different gas pressures and piston sizes to provide the optimal level of assistance for a particular application.
