Gas springs

By virtue of our experience gathered over many decades, SUSPA gas springs can meet your individual requirements for the opening, closing, tilting and damping of flaps.
The gas spring (often also called gas pressure spring, gas damper or gas pressure damper) is superior to other solutions in many points and offers many advantages:

  • Simple fitting
  • Compact construction
  • Definable spring characteristics and extension speed
  • Integrated damping

Design and Development

By using the most up-to-date design programs, CAD programs and the necessary testing and experimental facilities we can cover the complete process chain from design through prototypes and validation to the modern mass production of gas springs.

Every installation situation requires an individual design and setup of the gas pressure springs. We see it as our task and our service to advise the customer when determining the kinematics and the spring characteristics. Fast optimization and adaptation measures of the setup are possible on the customer's site too with our service mobile.

The technical development division has systems, testing and experiment facilities for all the relevant tests for trialling all components and for tests to accompany series production:

  • linear test stands
  • flap test stands
  • climatic test chambers
  • hydropulser
  • tailgate simulation
  • speed / acceleration measurement
  • Laboratory for metallurgy and corrosion tests
