Are you looking for a reliable and durable solution to open, close, or keep lids in position? Gas springs from Guden may just be the answer. With a wide selection of nitrogen-pressurized gas springs in steel with black nitride rods and 316L stainless steel, Guden can offer solutions that meet your exact needs, all while providing long-term, reliable performance.

Gas Springs, also often called Gas Lifts, Gas Struts, or Gas Props, come in three popular diameters and a variety of extended lengths, strokes, and pressures. They’re used in a wide variety of motion control applications, such as truck caps, chest lids, doors, hatches, and covers. Gas Springs are easy to install, require minimal maintenance, and will work for years with no sign of wear or decay. Our gas springs are available in a wide range of sizes, from our Mini-Size (4mm x 12mm) to our Compact-Size (6mm x 15mm) and Standard-Size (8mm x 18mm) and our Heavy-Duty-Size (10mm x 22mm) gas springs. So no matter your needs, we have the right size for your project.

In addition to standard Gas Springs, Guden can supply friction stop Gas Springs, locking Gas Springs, set force adjustable Gas Springs, Mini Gas Springs, and dampers (in either compression or extension). Guden also offers a selection of end fittings (connectors), brackets, and ball studs for mounting Gas Springs and dampers.

Guden’s Gas Springs: Two Essential Material Variations

Nitride Rod Gas Springs

These steel Gas Shocks are the standard Gas Spring option. They feature black nitride-coated steel rods, providing superior corrosion resistance and long-term durability in most applications.

Stainless Steel Gas Springs

Type 316L Stainless Steel Gas Springs provide an even higher level of corrosion resistance than their Nitride Rod Gas Springs counterparts. As a result, they’re perfect for use in medical, marine, and other caustic and extreme environments.

Types of Gas Springs Available at Guden

There are multiple types of Gas Springs that can be used for a variety of applications. See below for more information.

  • Adjustable - Starting at high pressure with a built-in valve, adjustable Gas Shocks allow you to reduce the pressure of the Gas Springs depending on your application needs.
  • Locking - Positive locks are a must in Gas Springs that need to stay firmly open. Locking Gas Springs feature a spring-loaded shroud around the rod that requires you to manually release it before you can compress the Gas Spring.
  • Friction - Friction Gas Struts can be used for positioning the cover in several open angles. A resistance nut is fitted around the rod, and when tightened, it provides friction and holds the lid or cover in the desired position.
  • Stainless steel - Black painted Gas Springs are the standard option, but if you need something more durable and corrosion-resistant, there are always stainless steel Gas Springs. These Gas Springs resist corrosion more than their black counterparts, so they’re a great choice for marine, chemical, or medical applications.
  • Mini Gas Springs - If you need Gas Struts for lighter lids and doors, mini Gas Springs are the answer. Despite their small size, these Gas Springs can fit into tight spaces and provide reliable performance with lower pressure ranges. Mini Gas Springs are available with black nitride rods and type 316L stainless steel.

Friction Stop Gas Springs

Guden’s Friction Stop Gas Springs are the perfect choice for applications that need to stay firmly open or closed. As Friction Stop Gas Springs are Standard Gas Struts with the additional feature of a friction nut mechanism, they can be used to hold Gas Springs at any point in the stroke cycle, or easily returned to standard action by loosening.

Locking Gas Springs

For applications that require total security, Guden’s Gas Springs come with a locking mechanism. Gas Struts with locking shrouds provide a secure extended position, thanks to their spring-loaded design, which angles the rod and sits on the end of the tube. This prevents compression until manually released, ensuring that Gas Springs are always in an outwardly stretched state.

Locking Gas Springs are especially well-suited for medical, marine, and chemical applications that need the utmost security. You can trust that Gas Struts from Guden will not compromise performance and quality, no matter how tough the conditions.

Adjustable Gas Springs

Guden’s Setforce Gas Springs are perfect for those applications that require a simple and cost-effective solution. This Gas Spring is assembled with an adjustable valve, allowing you to reduce the Gas Spring force starting at the maximum pressure up to the series limit.

Setforce Gas Struts are excellent for small-quantity applications, as each Gas Spring is pressurized at the factory, and can be adjusted on-site with no special tools required. They are an excellent choice to determine the P1 force required for an application before ordering standard parts. They are a perfect choice where the weight of the lid or cover varies and you can set a custom pressure for each. With Guden Gas Springs in stock for same-day shipment, you can trust that your application will be up and running in no time.

If you’re looking for something with a little more finesse, Guden also supplies hydraulic dampers in both compression and extension.

As each unit is oil-filled with some air, you can be sure of a longer-lasting Damper that will work just as well on the 500th open and close as it did on the first.
