Technical Information

To properly use gas springs in even the simplest application, users should understand how they work and how a gas spring can be modified to meet specific operating requirements. All of the topics covered in our Gas Springs Resources represent a gas spring feature or characteristic that can be modified to enhance gas spring performance. The information on gas springs in these sections apply equally to compression gas springs, tension or traction gas springs, and locking and stainless steel gas springs.

Note: Gas springs may also be referred to as gas struts, gas props, gas shocks, gas lifts or gas dampers depending on the industry and application.
