How do locking gas struts work?
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 gas 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.
What are the different types of locking gas springs?
Locking gas spring is called lockable gas spring,locking gas strut,lockable gas strut,bloc o lift. They are used for convenient and safe adjustment of sitting posture and lying position, they can provide variable locking in any stroke position.Gastac locking gas spring three types of Lockable Gas Struts flexible , rigid in extension locking gas spring , and rigid in compression lockable gas spring.
Flexible Locking: Under intense compression or tension loads, the rod may slightly flex. For optimal performance, these springs should be used with the rod pointing downward, unless an oil chamber system is employed.
What is a rigid locking gas strut?
Rigid locking gas strut has two characters:
Rigid in Extension: These gas springs remain rigid when the rod is pulled, with minimal flex during rod push. They are versatile for installation in any orientation.
Rigid in Compression: While pulling the rod leads to slight flex, pushing the rod results in no flex.These springs are ideal in rod-down orientation, unless equipped with an oil chamber system.
