Safety Locking Gas Strut with Shroud

Discover the exceptional safety features of our Camloc safety shroud gas struts, designed to revolutionize your application. Say goodbye to the hassle and cost of separate safety rods, as our gas struts provide an all-in-one solution.

What does a Safety Locking Gas Strut with Shroud do?

At Camloc, we understand the importance of safety in critical lift assist applications. That’s why our gas struts with a shroud eliminate the need for separate safety rods, offering enhanced security and peace of mind for operators at all times.

Operating these gas struts is simple, with automatic functionality that requires minimal effort. Once fully extended, a spring-loaded locking shroud securely positions itself, preventing the gas strut from compressing and ensuring maximum stability and safety. To release the shroud, simply apply thumb pressure to the designated area of the lock, allowing for a smoothly controlled compression.

Our locking shroud is finished with the same high-quality epoxy coating as the gas strut body, providing superior corrosion resistance. And with a guide inside the shroud, you don’t have to worry about any scratches to the gas strut cylinder.

Designed with heavy-duty applications in mind, such as trucks, construction machinery, switch gear, and agricultural equipment, our Econoloc range of gas struts combines superior quality with the critical safety feature required. Trust Camloc to provide gas spring solutions that prioritise reliability, safety, and performance, giving you the ultimate in peace of mind.
