Mounting gas springs: what should you keep in mind?

Protempo delivers a wide range of gas springs from HAHN Gasfedern. Below please find a summary installation instruction that applies to our gas springs. Please feel free to contact our product specialists if you have any questions.

  1. Gas compression springs: Preferably install the piston rod in a downward orientation.
    Gas tension springs: Preferably install the piston rod in an upward orientation.
  2. Make sure there is some tolerance in the connection points - avoid radial load on the piston rod.
  3. Minor damage to or coating remains on the piston rod may lead to a defective gas spring.
  4. If possible, mount the gas spring after the construction is completed and coated.
  5. Do not open the gas springs - high pressure!
