Tension Gas Springs

Tension gas springs also known as reverse acting gas springs are constructed from 316 stainless steel. The force on these springs pulls the piston rod inward, operating in the opposite direction of other gas springs. Great for use on doors, lids, hatches and hoods that need to stay closed. In its relaxed state, the spring is compressed; you must pull to extend it. Temperature range is -40° to +300° F.

Notes:

  1. Force increments of 10 pounds.
  2. Product length tolerance is ± .08 in. (2.0 mm).
  3. Force tolerance is +5-10 lbs over the nominal force.
  4. Maximum piston speed is approximately 12 in. /sec. (.3 m/sec). Fast operation rates lead to excessive heat build-up resulting in internal seal damage.
  5. Tension springs are under pressure. Please dispose of properly. Do not puncture or open.
