How do I mount a Gas Strut?
- The piston rod of the gas strut should normally be at the bottom when at rest, as the oil present in the cylinder on the seal and the guide ensures a longer service life
- The minimum angle to the horizontal should be 30° with the piston rod pointing downwards
- This also applies to the storage of gas struts
- Suitable for temperatures between -30°C to +80°C and have a different force depending on the temperature (gas expansion).
- Radial forces (transverse to the piston rod) must be avoided
- Do not lubricate the outer piston rod with grease or oil
- Keep the piston rod free of dirt and dust
- Do not use oils or solvents for cleaning
- Only 90% of the complete stroke should be used in order not to continually move the quantities of grease and oil at the end of the stroke
