Gas spring locks safely into place

Gas springs and hydraulic vibration dampers manufacturer Stabilus has introduced the rigid locking Bloc-O-Lift gas spring. Ideally suited for medical applications such as recline and vertical height adjustment of hospital beds, wheelchairs and stretchers, this lockable solution provides safe and reliable position adjustment. The rigid locking effect of Stabilus' rigid locking Bloc-O-Lift is obtained when the gas spring is filled with oil, which is a noncompressible liquid. This allows for rigid locking in either a tensile or compression direction, even when the gas spring is subjected to greater external forces. For position-independent locking, rigid locking Bloc-O-Lift gas springs are equipped with a separating piston that separates the gas and oil chambers. All Bloc-O-Lift gas springs are an effective means for raising loads with an accurately tuned extension force and application-specific dampening, while ensuring user-friendly movement. More versatile than mechanical springs, gas springs offer the advantages of speed-controlled dampening, cushioned end motion, simple mounting, compact size, flat force curve and a wide range of available forces.
