What are gas struts?


A gas strut is a sealed cylinder that is used to enhance the performance of anything that involves the lifting, lowering or positioning of moving parts.

Similar to a mechanical spring but more precise, durable and cost-effective, a gas strut can be applied to a broad range of commercial and domestic applications to:


  • improve the safety in using heavy objects
  • reduce wear & tear
  • control the speed of movement
  • dampen the end motion during movement.


A gas strut is made up of a number of components: a rod, chamber, piston, seals and end fittings. The chamber of the strut contains pressurised gas and a small amount of oil.

Output forces of a gas strut can be factory set OR gassed by Strut Innovations to suit your specifications. Gassing a strut to suit your individual specifications will ensure that you obtain the optimum working force from the strut.
