Locking gas spring
What is a locking gas spring?
Gastac has three types of Locking Gas Springs.
They are flexible locking gas spring, rigid in extension locking gas spring, and rigid in compression locking gas spring. All types of Adjustable Locking Gas Struts incorporate a mechanism enabling the user to “lock” the rod at any point in its travel through a plunger that protrudes from the rod. When this plunger is depressed the rod is free to operate as normal. When the plunger is released, which may be at any point in the stroke, the rod is locked in that position.
Gastac offers three types of locking gas springs, with the following characteristics when locked:
Flexible the rod may slightly spring under heavy compression or tension loading. These locking gas springs must be used in a rod-down orientation unless an “oil chamber” system is fitted.
Rigid in extension locking gas spring, no spring when rod is being pulled, slight spring when rod being pushed. These locking gas springs can be used in any orientation.
Rigid in compression slight spring when rod being pulled, no spring when rod is being pushed. These locking gas springs must be used in a rod-down orientation unless an “oil chamber” system is fitted.
Adjustable locking gas spring has different gas spring locking mechanism,if you are not sure which types of locking gas spring,please contact our Technical Sales Team for assistance in specifying the correct product for your application.
Locking Gas Springs have elastic or rigid locking character.They are used for convenient and safe adjustment of sitting posture and lying position, they can provide variable locking in any stroke position.
Locking gas springs from Gastac can offer optimum weight equalization during opening, closing and positioning. A special piston / valve system, which separates the two pressure chambers in the spring, allows effortless variable locking. If the valve tappet is released from the outside and the exchange between the pressure chambers is interrupted, the gas spring will lock and hold even heavy loads reliably in the desired position.
