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
