Similarly, you may ask, how does a gas strut work?
Camloc gas struts work by forcing, under pressure, an inert gas (Nitrogen) into a cylinder. The internal pressure then greatly exceeds atmospheric pressure. When the rod is compressed into the cylinder, the internal pressure and the output force increase according to the volume displaced by the rod.
Additionally, why do gas struts fail? Struts contain nitrogen gas under pressure and some oil to damp movement and to lubricate the seals. Struts tend to fail in two main ways. Most failures are due to a gradual loss of pressure to the gas which results in the strut being unable to support the load.
In respect to this, how long do gas struts last?
about five years
What strength gas strut do I need?
To calculate the size and the force of the Gas Strut you require for your application use the following guidelines. The extended length of the Gas Strut should be approximately 60% of the door or hatch length - e.g. a 1000mm high door should have a Gas Strut length of approximately 600mm.
