DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GAS STRUTS, SHOCKS, AND SPRINGS
Gas springs are sometimes referred to as gas struts, gas props, or gas lifts depending on the industry and application. Gas springs or gas struts are frequently used to support or counterbalance moving masses.
Damped gas springs are also referred to as gas shocks or gas dampers depending on the industry and application. Damped gas springs are used to support moving masses while controlling the system’s motion.
