Gas Struts – Adj.

Adjustable Force

Available to special order

Use the part numbering format as noted in the drawing

Gas Struts are available from stock in various diameters in the adjustable form.  They are pressurised to the maximum force for that Strut size.  Gas can be released via a bleed valve, accessible from the side, which allows gas to be vented, hence reducing the force.

They are ideal for applications where the exact weights are unknown, thus making force calculations difficult.

Technical Notes


1. Mount gas strut on the application with the rod pointing downwards and the valve at the top.

2. The gas strut will probably have more force than required so do not attempt to force the door or lid shut.

3. Insert an allen key into the grub screw on the valve.  Undo slightly until the sound of gas escaping is heard.  Quickly re-seal the valve by tightening the grub screw. 

4. If using two gas struts per application, adjust each one in turn until the correct force is achieved.  It is important not to release too much gas in one go.

5. Warning do not remove grub screw
