As part of our mission to be more than just a manufacturer of gas springs and dampers, we have worked with industry leaders in the military sector on specialist projects. Our gas springs and dampers are suited for powerful tracked and wheeled military vehicles facing sophisticated land forces across a wide range of operating environments.
Through our bespoke solution offering, our engineers will work with you to find the best possible solution to meet the exacting standards required in military vehicles. With safety being imperative due to how military vehicles are used and where they are found, we understand the importance of providing a product of the highest quality, which provides the best possible solution for your application.
Our wide product offering enables us to provide a solution for a large number of applications on military vehicles. For example, our traction lockable gas spring – the Blocklift – is ideal for Commander, Driver/Crew and Gunner seating. Being fitted with a special locking valve which will only allow the spring to be moved when the pin is pressed, enables the gas spring to be stopped at any position.
Also, our standard Swift and Sure can be utilised to provide a controlled rate of movement and lift assist for applications which have the capacity to cause injury if a gas spring is not featured. Armoured vehicle bonnets, doors, boots and tailgates are primary examples of heavy-duty military vehicle applications where ease-of-use and safety for the end-user is crucial.
Our products have been tried and tested ‘in-theatre’ by armies, including special forces, around the world.
Specific applications include but are not limited to:
- Seating height adjust (Commander/Driver/Gunner/Crew)
- Armoured vehicle bonnet/doors/boot/tailgates
- Storage bins
- Storage compartments
- Equipment access panels
