How do our adjustable force gas struts work?

Well, when it comes to Camloc’s gas strut offerings, we’ve got you covered with our innovative VARI-LIFT version. It’s available for all our standard, shrouded, multi-positional, and stainless-steel gas struts, providing you with the flexibility to meet your individual preferences.

Here’s the lowdown on how they work: During the manufacturing process, our gas struts are charged to their maximum force. To fine-tune the force to suit your specific application, simply use the tool we provide to gradually release the gas through the VARI-LIFT valve at the end of the tube. This allows you to precisely adjust the force according to your needs. Once you’ve found the sweet spot, we can measure this pressure level and provide you with production fixed force gas springs that are all pre-set to your exact requirements.

Now, you might be wondering, what about factors like hinge friction or the customer’s perception of speed? These are the tricky ones that can’t be accurately calculated. That’s where the beauty of our Vari-Lift option comes into play. It gives you the flexibility to fine-tune and customise your gas strut to cater to these unique factors.
