" GAS STRUTS WE MAKE 'EM "
A TRACTION SPRING
After many months of research we have perfected our own design of Traction Springs. So many times we have been asked can I have a Gas Strut that pulls rather than push, now you can, its called a Traction Spring and there are two types. They look very much like our Gas Struts and in fact have the same body and shaft diameter and even most end fittings can be used. Force ikncrease is -50%. Length is calculated as stroke * 2.0 + 51. Max Force is 1200n.Contact us for more info and tech specs...
2006 is the year for Lockable Gas Springs & Stainless Steel Gas Struts
(All wholly manufactured in Australia)

What are they?
Lockable Gas Springs (or struts)
are similar to normal gas struts, which hopefully everyone knows
about! We have them on our cars to hold the boot or bonnet open.
The difference is that Lockable Gas Springs have a button at the end of the piston rod. Until this button is pressed, either mechanically or hydraulically, the strut can not be moved to either open or close.
As soon as the button is released the strut will hold its position.
Locking Springs are designed to be locked in a fixed position by internal hydraulic/pneumatic flow control. The flow is controlled externally by a release button at the end of the piston rod. All Locking Springs have a 'break-away' locked force. (The point at which the pressure behind the floating piston is overcome by the force applied to the rod. See chart below for locking factors.)
HOW MANY TYPES ARE THERE?
There are three different types of Lockable Gas Springs; RLE Rigid Lock on extension. RLC Rigid Lock on Compression and SPR Spring Locking.
How many sizes are there?
At this time we are able to offer two sizes. Body diameter of 23mm and Shaft diameter of 10mm, or, body diameter of 28mm and shaft diameter 10mm. Length can be to your specifications, refer to table below.
