Non-Locking - Gas Springs
- LIFT-O-MAT Gas Spring
Gas Spring for Lifting, Lowering, Moving, and Adjusting
STABILUS gas pressure springs in the LIFT-O-MAT line are used whenever loads
need to be lifted or lowered in a controlled manner. They provide force
assist and thus ensure optimum weight equalization. With LIFT-O-MAT, opening
and closing doors and lids becomes child’s play. Its damping properties
ensure safe and user-friendly motion sequences.
Properties and Function
The LIFT-O-MAT gas spring is a hydropneumatic adjustment element consisting
of a pressure tube, piston rod with piston, as well as a suitable end
fitting. It is filled with nitrogen, which, under constant pressure, acts on
piston cross sections of different sizes, creating a force in the extension
direction. This force can be accurately specified through the individual
Among the advantages of this gas spring – compared with a mechanical spring
– are its defined speed curve and excellent damping properties, which make
handling even heavy lids and doors comfortable. Ease of mounting, compact
dimensions, a flat spring characteristic curve, and a very broad selection
of available strengths and end fittings round out the positive overall
- Broad selection of sizes, force variants, and end fittings
- Compact design, small space requirement
- Fast and easy assembly
- Flat spring characteristic curve; i.e., low force increase, even for high
forces or large strokes
- Linear, progressive, or degressive spring characteristic curve
- Variable locking mechanism (product-specific)
- End position lock (extended and compressed)
- Additional functions, such as electric switches, stop function, etc. can
Locking Gas Springs
- BLOC-O-LIFT Gas Spring
Variable Positioning, Rigid or Elastic Locking Gas Spring
Flaps and lids can be very heavy and hard to operate by hand. Chairs and
desks must be adapted to the body height of the individual user to take
ergonomic aspects into consideration. In these cases, gas springs from
STABILUS will provide optimum weight equalization and user-friendly motion
sequences during opening, closing, and positioning. Our products in the
BLOC-O-LIFT line are also available with variable locking, either rigid or
elastic in the direction of tension or compression, depending on the desired
A special piston / valve system, which separates the two pressure chambers
in the spring, allows effortless variable locking. If the valve tappet is
released from the outside and the exchange between the pressure chambers is
interrupted, the gas spring will lock and hold even heavy loads reliably in
the desired position. With the valve open, the linear spring characteristic
curve of the BLOC-O-LIFT will provide an even increase in force over the
entire range of motion.

Swivel Chairs Gas Springs
- STAB-O-MAT Gas Springs for Comfortable Height Adjustment
Height Adjustment in Swivel Chairs for Demanding Applications
STAB-O-MAT is a locking gas spring, designed especially for variable,
comfortable seat height adjustment of office swivel chairs, task chairs,
executive chairs, and stools.
Swivel chairs with STAB-O-MAT make working comfortable. Pleasantly dampened,
they feature variable height adjustment and gently absorb the weight of the
This is made possible by the patented double cylinder system, consisting of
a pressure tube and a guide tube. The self-supporting pressure tube is
designed to allow bending moments, for example if the load on the seat is
An additional variant of the STAB-O-MAT gas spring is the STAB-O-BLOC with
non-self-supporting pressure tube. The difference: An outer support tube
absorbs the bending moments. The gas pressure spring provides spring force
and damping for the seat and is used to adjust the height.
Properties and Advantages
Available as complete columns or individual gas springs
Available in different lengths and with strokes of 50 to 300 mm
Swiveling and non-swiveling versions
