Tanning Bed Struts
As you know,the force in a tanning bed struts will vary with temperature.And many user take care of the temperature in the tanning room effect the pressure of the Tanning bed gas springs.
How do you measure tanning bed struts?
To measure tanning bed struts (gas springs) for replacement, follow these steps:
- Identify Strut Type:Determine whether your tanning bed uses a single or double gas strut configuration. Note the mounting points on both the bed frame and the canopy.
- Measure Length:For each strut, measure the overall length from the center of one end fitting to the center of the other end fitting. Measure the extended length when the strut is fully extended and the compressed length when fully closed.
- Determine Force/Pound Rating:Gas struts are rated based on their force or pound rating. This is the amount of force required to compress the strut. Check the existing struts for this information, typically measured in pounds (lb) or Newtons (N). Ensure that the replacement struts have a similar force rating.
- Check Diameter:Measure the diameter of the strut’s tube. Common sizes are 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, etc. Ensure that the replacement struts have the same diameter to fit the existing mounting brackets.
- Note Mounting Ends:Examine the end fittings of the struts. Different struts may have various end configurations such as ball sockets, eyelets, or clevis ends. Ensure the replacement struts have the same type of end fittings for proper installation.
- Verify Brand and Model:If possible, note the brand and model of the existing struts. This information can be helpful when ordering replacements, ensuring compatibility with your tanning bed.
Consider Tension Adjustment:Some gas struts have adjustable tension. If your tanning bed allows for tension adjustments, check if the existing struts have this feature, and ensure that the replacements offer a similar capability.
- Consult Manufacturer or Supplier:If in doubt, consult the manufacturer’s documentation or contact the supplier from whom you plan to purchase the replacement struts. They can provide guidance on selecting the right size and type for your specific tanning bed model.
By carefully measuring and considering these factors, you can ensure that the replacement tanning bed struts are the correct size, strength, and configuration for your equipment.
