Floating Gas Springs allow for an extra slow and controlled movement while the piston rod is extending.
To prevent shock load being transferred through hinges and surrounding structure, most push type gas springs are specified with damping on the extension stroke to slow the application at end of travel.
However, sometimes, end of travel damping is not sufficient. In these cases, we can offer gas springs with a floating piston. This option ensures that the gas spring is fully damped through the whole range of travel and will extend at a controlled and steady rate. Damping is produced to operate on extension, compression or in both directions.
Similar to all Dictator gas springs, these are manufactured to suit your application. Gas spring forces and damping rates can be tailored to suit your requirements. Additionally, Dictator is pleased to offer a technical calculation service to establish a suitable specification gas spring for your application.
