What are gas springs and what are they made of?

Gas springs are cylinders with a piston and a piston rod. The mechanism works through nitrogen and oil. The pressure built up in the gas spring causes a resilient effect and absorbs great forces. This makes it possible to use the gas spring in different environments. The gas springs from Wood, Tools & Deco are made of steel, aluminum and stainless steel. All safe and sturdy materials. Nitrogen (N) is the gas contained in the spring. The use of nitrogen is not harmful to the environment or to humans.

Universal gas springs for all kinds of applications

Wood, Tools & Deco has various options for you in the gas springs category. These gas springs are ideal for all kinds of do-it-yourself new construction projects or, for example, for a flap cupboard or the lid of a sturdy pirate chest for the children or grandchildren. The gas springs are universal and can be mounted on various brands of cabinets and systems, metal or wood. The gas pressure spring has been specially developed to allow the open and slow and heavy closing of, for example, the lid of a toy box so that the children cannot hurt their fingers. The valve closes a lot more quietly instead of closing with a loud bang. A few examples where a gas spring can be used:

  • Top cupboard lid
  • Lid of a wheelie bin
  • Lid of a toy chest
  • Replacing window hinges
  • Office cabinet flaps

Assembly of the gas spring

One gas spring is sufficient for almost all valves, lids and doors. In principle, the gas pressure spring is easy to assemble, but the difference in distance between open and closed must be taken into account during assembly. Different degree angles to leave something open are also possible. The gas spring is also widely used to replace old window extenders, which makes installing an insect screen much easier. The gas springs can be mounted on various surfaces, such as on a wooden and metal surface.
