SUSPA gas springs product range

SUSPA gas springs are used to offset weight or to support the activation of moving components. Pushing, lifting, lowering, pulling and positioning in a controlled manner is possible with SUSPA gas springs.

Compared to other compression spring parts such as plate springs, rubber springs or coil springs, SUSPA gas springs differ by their flat spring characteristics (low force increase), the largest possible pretensioning, settable extension speed, low weight and highly modifiable forces for the same dimensions. In addition, SUSPA offers its customers a range of special functions and special fittings when designing their gas springs.

Dimensions of the gas springs

SUSPA gas springs have the dimensions listed in the table below as standard:

TypeExtension force
Stroke max.
Ø Piston rod
Ø Tube
16-12      40-180       150         4   12
16-1      50-420       150         6   15
16-2      80-750       250         8   18,5
16-4     100-1.200       495        10   22
16-6     200-2.000       500        14   28

If a geometry is required that cannot be found in the table, then please get in touch with us. For mini gas springs in particular (tube diameter less than 15 mm or piston rod diameter less than 6 mm) it is essential to look at the individual application. The same is true of gas springs with very large dimensions i.e. tube diameter greater than 28 mm and piston rod diameter greater than 14 mm. In these cases please get in touch with us so that we can advise you accordingly.
