Locking Gas Strut HY3
Usually Gastac gas spring has two types of locking gas struts,8mm and 10mm piston rods,the same pressure tube diameter 28mm,we called a locking gas spring HY3.
Extension Direction: In the extension direction (when the locking gas strut is being pushed out), both types of locking gas struts have rigid locking up to a mechanical load limit. This means that regardless of the force applied to extend the locking gas strut, it will remain rigid until it reaches this limit,usually this Max.force 7000~8000N.
Compression Direction: In the compression direction (when the locking gas strut is being pushed in), the locking remains rigid until a limit is reached, which is dependent on the force applied to compress it.The limit for rigid locking in the compression direction is mentioned to be 5.8~6.2 times the F1-force. This limit is significant because it allows the locking gas strut to handle loads that require rigid locking even when additional loads or weights are applied. Once the applied force increase up to this limit, the separating piston (part of the gas strut) moves in the direction of the gas chamber.
Locking gas strut HY3 application and advantage:
- Backrest Adjustment of Seats: This feature is commonly seen in car seats.It allows users to change the angle of the backrest to achieve a comfortable sitting position. This adjustment can help with posture, comfort, and ergonomics, ensuring that the user’s back is properly supported.
- Tilt Adjustment of Hospital Beds: Hospital beds often come with a tilt adjustment feature that allows the entire bed to be raised or lowered at the head or foot end. This adjustment is crucial for medical reasons, as it can assist patients in sitting up, lying flat, or being positioned at an angle that is medically necessary for their condition.
- Leg Supports on Wheelchairs and Passenger Seats: Leg supports are designed to provide support and comfort to the legs of individuals seated in wheelchairs or passenger seats (e.g., on airplanes or buses). These supports can be adjusted to different heights and angles to accommodate various leg lengths and positions. This adjustment helps in reducing fatigue and improving overall comfort during extended periods of sitting.
