Applications for gas springs: Building Technology
Gas springs are used in houses and buildings to move windows, flaps or doors with comfort and safety. Gas springs are suitable for a huge range of applications in the field of building technology.

Typical applications:

  • Skylights and emergency exit windows
  • Doors
  • Marquees
  • Shaft covers

Gas springs make skylights and emergency exit windows easy to open and lock securely in the desired position. This is particularly important for heavy windows. Gas springs also prevent them from slamming shut in bad weather, protecting them from damage.

Shaft covers are often extremely heavy, making them difficult to move without the assistance of gas springs. Gas springs help to open and close covers comfortably, but are mainly used for safety purposes. They dampen the movement of the cover and make it possible to lock the flap securely in an open position.

Gas springs are also perfectly suited for moving doors as well as extending and retracting marquees.

Gas springs make the following possible:

  • easy opening
  • secure locking
  • smooth closing
  • and reliable valve seals.
