Gas Springs and Dampers
Gas springs and dampers open and close doors, hatches, access panels, and other objects at steady, controlled speeds. They contain pressurized gas that provides smoother movement and makes them less prone to wear than coiled metal springs. Gas springs, also known as gas lifts, supply pushing or pulling force for lifting, lowering, and supporting objects such as vehicle tailgates and machinery hatches. Dampers slow the motion of lids or doors, so they close gently and quietly to avoid damage.
