Gas struts with special functions

In addition to our standard product range, we also offer you different special solutions for our gas springs.

  • TouchLift gas spring

    SUSPA TouchLift

     

     

    The SUSPA TouchLift is a gas spring that locks itself in the retracted position. In this way, for example, covers can be kept in the lowered position. Slight pressure on the cover releases the lock and the gas spring extends. The lock works according to the so-called ballpoint pen principle:

     

     

    • Pressing once locks the mechanism in place
    • Pressing again releases the lock

     

     

     

     Standard product range

    SUSPA furniture pneumatic spring

     

     

    SUSPA offers you the ideal solution for the furniture sector for the opening function of your cabinet door.

     

     

     

     

     

    Standard gas spring or soft-stop gas spring

    The standard gas spring as well as the soft-stop gas spring are both extension-damped. After an opening angle of about 10°, the cabinet flap opens automatically with both types up to an end position of about 90°.

    Special features

    • Automatic and low-noise opening function
    • Uniformly damped movement throughout the entire opening process
    • Gentle braking upon reaching the end position


    Positioning gas spring

    The positioning gas spring is the right solution if a furniture door or flap is not to automatically open all the way to the uppermost position. The gas spring supports the force, but remains securely in the respective position desired by the user. An interim stop is also possible in any position.
     

    Special features

    • Force support during the opening function
    • Interim stop possible in any position, therefore optimal accessibility 

     

    Standard product range

    We offer you our furniture gas springs for the following flap materials.

  • Automobile gas spring

    In automotive applications, gas springs aid the opening function of tailgates, trunk lids and hoods. They control the opening behavior and can be used wherever a functionally reliable and convenient operation is expected with a low energy expenditure. Gas springs are the ideal opening aids due to the flexible adjustment of forces with constant dimensions and due to the flat characteristic curves.

  • Gas spring with mechanical spring

    The spring characteristic (force progression) changes by means of a gas spring with an integrated mechanical spring.

    Gas spring with progressive course

     

    A force diagram with a progressive characteristic curve (progressive course) is created due to a mechanical spring in the pipe between the piston and bottom of the pipe.

     Gas spring with degressive course

    A force diagram with a degressive characteristic curve (degressive course) is created due to a mechanical spring

  • Gas spring with groove

    The standard gas spring as well as the soft-stop gas spring are both extension-damped With both gas spring types, when lightly lifted the flap opens automatically after an opening angle of about 10° until an end position of about 90°. To minimize vibrations, the speed is controlled throughout the entire opening range by means of a special groove-controlled damping (extension-damping), which makes uniform opening possible. It is possible to optimize the pneumatic spring to the respective installation situation by pre-setting the filling pressure during production.

    Pneumatic Spring with Groove                                                                       

     Special features

    • The extension speed is defined
    • Automatic and low-noise opening function
    • Uniformly damped movement throughout the entire opening process
    • Gentle braking upon reaching the end position
  • Gas spring with lubrication reservoir

    The gas spring with lubrication reservoir is based on the Space-Mat principle. This principle means that a plastic foam that is around the piston rod absorbs lubricants via capillary effects in the cavities and dispenses them again later when lubrication is needed. This significantly improves the service duration of the pneumatic spring, especially when used in technically demanding environments (dirt and dust).

    Gas spring with lubrication reservoir

     

    Special features

    • Suitable for use in technically demanding environments (dirt and dust)
    • Suitable for special installation situations (e.g. piston rod facing up)
  • Gas spring with protective cap

    If the gas spring is used in a particularly dirty or dusty environment, it may be necessary to protect the seal by using protective caps made of rubber or plastic. The protective cap is intended to ensure that no dirt and dust particles in the environment penetrate into the pneumatic spring seal when actuating the flap. Using the protective cap therefore also has a positive effect on the service life of the gas spring in these installation situations. 

    Gas spring with protective cap 

    In an extremely dirty environment, the protection that is guaranteed by the protective cap may not be sufficient. In these extreme environmental conditions, it is advisable to use a Space-Mat gas spring (gas spring with lubrication reservoir) from SUSPA.

  • Positioning gas spring (Friction gas spring)

    The positioning gas spring is the right solution if a flap is not to automatically open all the way to the uppermost position. The gas spring supports the force, but remains securely in the respective position desired by the user. An interim stop is also possible in any position. The gas spring can be optimized for the respective application due to the different fill pressure.

     

    Friction pneumatic spring from SUSPA

     Special features

    • Force support during the opening function
    • Interim stop possible in any position, therefore optimal accessibility to the flap
  • TipUp®: Opening system for beds with storage space

    The innovative mechanism completely redefines the concept of bed frame opening and closing. The bed surface can effortlessly be opened, closed and stopped in any position with a finger.

     

     

     

    TipUp® can be used for any bed frame, whether wood or steel, slatted bed base or box spring, and can be used for weights between 25 and 100 kg. This is ensured by the core piece of the system, the pneumatic spring with different forces. Since the system can also be installed in four different installation positions, the number of different pneumatic springs is also reduced to a minimum. The new SUSPA gas spring with a special damper and "anti-shock" function not only ensures comfort, but also in particular increases the level of safety during the closing process.


    The system can be assembled without special tools merely by using allen wrenches. The assembly time per bed is thus reduced by up to 65% compared to conventional systems.
    TipUp® has a significantly reduced weight due to the use of glass fiber-reinforced polyamide and is therefore particularly lightweight and compact.   

    SUSPA provides you with the complete opening system, including gas springs, polyamide fittings and screws.
