Standard size steel and stainless steel gas springs

Standard compression gas springs (often called gas struts, or gas shocks) are self-contained force storage devices used in a wide spectrum of industries to provide a compact, high force solution to a wide variety of lifting and counterbalancing applications.

IGS gas spring products are developed under the most stringent Quality procedures dictated by the ISO 9001 and AS 9100C to ensure consistent compliance to the customer’s requirements.

The main features and benefits of our gas spring products include:

  • Service life up to 250,000 cycles or 10 years *
  • Superior reliability in a wide range of environmental conditions
  • Maintenance free
  • Adjustable force **
  • Configurable extension velocity and compression resistance
  • Configurable spring force progression ***

 

All gas springs can be charged at the force you specify. If you are not sure of the force required, our adjustable force springs will assist you on defining your requirement experimentally.

For help on how to calculate the size and force required for an application, please refer to our Technical and Design Reference section.

* Depending on application conditions, ** excluding the low force size-4 springs, *** The IGS term for progression is K-Factor

Stainless steel gas springs

For applications exposed to corrosive environments (e.g. Marine, Petrochemical) IGS Stainless Steel product range employs 316L grade Stainless Steel to ensure optimum performance and reliability to the most challenging environments such as marine, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and medical applications.

The same grade of Stainless Steel is also employed for the IGS non-magnetic product range for use in Aerospace, Marine and Medical (MRI Scanners) applications.
