Gas Struts


SPD n-Struts® gas struts (or gas springs) by Associated Spring RAYMOND are engineered to deliver optimal performance in a variety of applications & environments. Gas struts (sometimes called “gas springs” or “gas shocks”) offer compressed nitrogen to provide the force and a hydraulic circuit to provide the dampening (removes the “snap effect”).

Our standard n-Struts® are offered in coated nitrided steel, stainless steel (316SS included), adjustable force gas springs, traction gas springs, and lockable gas springs. If your OEM or aftermarket application requires something not available in standard parts, our engineers can help design, manufacture, and stock a custom solution. See our Services section for additional information.

Gas Spring Force and Compression

The spring force listed in the data table refers to the extended position of the strut; forces increase slightly as the strut is compressed. By default, end fittings are provided in the data table and not necessarily included with the purchase of a gas spring. Associated Spring RAYMOND offers a complete line of end fittings to fit your application. For clarification on technical terms see our FAQs. If your OEM or aftermarket application requires a custom strut, accessory, or functional assembly consider utilizing our engineered solution services.
