With the Varilock lockable gas springs, the SUSPA expertise is in particular distinguished by the finely mechanical valve design, which allows for a variety of special functions to be realized. The user thus not only receives a gas spring, but rather an intelligent system that adds indispensable added value to the application.
The "EasySwitch" module gives the user the opportunity to control the valve "digitally," namely alternating from the closed to the permanently opened position and back.
The change between the two states is controlled by actuating the control element. With a chair, the EasySwitch keeps the valve open (oscillating feature) or closed (locked backrest) after actuation.
The "OverRide" module makes it possible to release the locking in the extension direction without actuating the release. For table applications, the height is adjusted by applying a slight pulling force on the tabletop. Once reaching the desired position, the locking is rigid in the pressing direction.
OverRide causes an extremely convenient operation that was originally designed for use in hospital beds and side tables. OverRide in particular allows for the single-handed actuation of the application.
The "TimeReset" module automatically detects whether the application is loaded with a user weight or not. Under load, the lockable gas spring works conventionally and allows for variable locking. When the application is not loaded, the lockable gas spring returns to its starting position (vertical backrest) within a defined time period.
TimeReset is particularly suitable for passenger seats, cinema and theatre seating or conference chairs.
Using the "ComfortReleaseLow" module can adjust the lockable gas spring to the requirements of any release system in order to achieve maximum operating comfort. Conventional valve designs (standard release) cannot be conveniently triggered in the event of high extension forces. SUSPA ensures a convenient release through the lowest possible manual force on the actuating element (knob, lever). We are happy to advise you in the optimization of your application.
Lockable gas springs for aviation are ideal for the comfortable and safe adjustment of the sitting and lying position of passenger and pilot seats.
The special function OverloadProtection OP for the lockable gas struts HY3 and HY4 is used for the safe adjustment of the application in the extension direction without release. Thus, for example, massage couches, armrests and footrests can be adjusted comfortably and intuitively with one hand.
Upon exceeding a defined force in the extension direction, a valve opens and an adjustment in the extension direction is possible without using the release lever. Until this limited force is reached, the gas strut locks on extension as well as on compression load according to the selected types HY3 or HY4.
Easily, quickly and conveniently configure your custom lockable gas spring from various versions and connections with the CAD configurator.
