“I have a tail gate, machine guard, skylight, cabinet door etc. that needs supporting/lifting/counterbalancing – how can you help?” A common enough enquiry experienced byour experts here at FDB Panel Fittings, so we are delighted to now have available a Gas Struts Knowledge Base Guide to address this situation with information on applications, operation, key selection criteria, force characteristics, life expectancy and standard sizes/rod ends etc.
This useful downloadable document – which is available at www.fdb.co.uk/downloads/knowledge-base.html – aims to give enough guidance to introduce gas struts to new users or to help experienced users to specify a suitable unit. The Knowledge Base Guides are backed by the extensive experience of staff here at FDB – who can help you refine a specific choice from the standard product range or to define custom requirements. These include use on coaches, horse boxes, medical/rehab equipment, as well as AISI 316 stainless steel units for marine, off-shore, food and pharmaceutical industries.
