Swift & Sure

The Swift & Sure is one of our most popular Gas Springs (sometimes referred to as gas strut) and is available in an extensive range of sizes and with a wide range of End Connectors and Brackets for a wide variety of applications.

Swift & Sure is an entirely self contained, maintenance free, hydropneumatic ram which is charged under pressure with an inert gas.  It has the characteristics of a compression spring which, coupled with a small change in force as it extends, provides a controlled rate of movement.  At the end of the extension stroke, oil damping occurs due to a hydraulically cushioned zone.  These features help protect hinges and mounts by applying constant force with a damped end of travel.

We pride ourselves on our service to customers, with design engineers on hand to work with you.  Recognising that no two applications are the same, We provide engineered solutions to meet your exact requirement.

Together, we can select the most appropriate Gas Spring for your application, and provide fixed force or Vari-Lift prototypes quickly for testing on your application.

Swift & Sure Gas Springs are ideally suited for use on car tailgates / bonnets, machine guards, lockers, access panels, hood supports, hatch covers and many more.
