WDS has released a range of adjustable gas struts that allow the end user to quickly adapt the internal pressure to meet the requirements of their particular application.

Gas strut

With just a single allen key (supplied), the adjustment can be made in seconds and allows the standard gas struts to become compatible with a host of applications that require different weights. This flexibility reduces delivery time and keeps costs down as bespoke components are no longer required and the parts are available ex stock.

According to the company, because of the massive scope of potential pressures, it can be extremely hard to find a single product with the correct pressure rating in stock. This can lead to long lead times and, in some cases, if the pressure needs to be set to order prior to delivery, higher purchase prices.

Adjustable gas struts from WDS solve this problem by offering a comprehensive range of pressures within just four standard products.

Gas struts can be used in many applications, including car tailgates, skylights, sunbeds, boat access hatches and machine guards.
