Other Product Types

Here at European Springs we also aim to supply the following product types not shown in our standard range:

Gas springs with dynamic damping

A longitudinal groove on the inside of the cylinder controls extension speed and can be adapted for various movement requirements. One advantage with dynamic damping is that braking of the stroke can be achieved without the piston rod pointing downwards.


In this product, the cylinder is filled with oil and can, for example, this can be used to slow down a falling hatch or other components that must be dampened during movement.

Lockable gas springs type RLC

Lockable gas springs have a fixed, high locking force in compression. An RLC is suitable when you want to have a solid locking of designs, where heavier loads may occur in the direction of compression of the gas spring. Common applications are hospital beds for heavier patients, massage tables, adjustable chairs and desks, and gym equipment.
