KAYABA HANIL PRECISION gas spring/gas damper

Gas springs and gas dampers are used in the rear flip-up doors of trucks. In recent years, due to the spread of mobile sales vehicles and kitchen cars, it is also used for side flip-up doors. Since gas springs and gas dampers are consumables, their repulsive force weakens and they need to be replaced depending on the frequency of use and the environment of use (use at high temperatures or extreme low temperatures that tend to shorten their lifespan).

Gas springs and gas dampers essential for truck doors

A gas damper/gas spring is a device that assists the opening and closing of the door by the pressure of the gas contained in the cylinder. Since high-pressure gas is sealed inside, the structure is simpler, cheaper, smaller, and lighter than the hydraulic type.

It also does not require a power supply to operate and does not require regular maintenance. However, since it is a consumable item, it must be replaced. Especially in the case of large trucks with large flip-up doors, it can be said that installation is essential not only for work efficiency but also for safety.
