Stabilus is a company with over 60 years of experience in the field of motion control, which represents the utmost reliability in the production of gas springs, hydraulic dampers, and electromechanical drives.

Stabilus gas springs and hydraulic dampers have become an essential element in vehicle design, as they guarantee safe and easy mobility, precise motion sequences, and effective vibration damping.

Stabilus has an extremely wide range of different types of gas springs that differ in terms of external dimensions, speed characteristics, and extension variants. Thanks to this variety of products, the company is able to provide solutions for every application.

Gas springs LIFT-O-MAT

Stabilus gas springs LIFT-O-MAT are hydro-pneumatic adjustment elements that are used whenever loads need to be lifted, lowered, moved, and adjusted in a controlled manner.

With an exactly calibrated extension force and damping specifically defined for the application, the LIFT-O-MAT gas spring allows optimal weight compensation, acts as a force support, lifts loads, opens doors and hoods, and, thanks to its damping characteristics, allows for easy execution of movements.

LIFT-O-MAT gas springs are also very easy to install and have compact dimensions, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.

  • Stabilus LIFT-O-MAT gas springs offer a wide choice of sizes, forces, and end fittings.
  • The flat characteristic curve of the Stabilus LIFT-O-MAT gas spring ensures a low force increase, even for high forces or large strokes.
  • Stabilus LIFT-O-MAT gas springs offer the possibility of integrating additional functions such as electric switches, stop function, etc.
  • Stabilus LIFT-O-MAT gas springs are available with dynamic or hydraulic damping depending on the application and mounting position.
  • Hydro-Lift: in addition to the normal LIFT-O-MAT® function, movement can be stopped at various positions.
  • Reib-LIFT-O-MAT: these gas springs can be stopped in any position through increased friction.
  • Elektro-Lift: in addition to the gas spring function, an electric current is transmitted and even controlled, for example for engine compartment or trunk lighting.

Gas springs BLOC-O-LIFT

The BLOC-O-LIFT gas springs function fundamentally according to the same principle as the LIFT-O-MAT gas springs. In addition, the BLOC-O-LIFT gas springs can be continuously locked and, depending on their structural design, either elastically or rigidly in the direction of tension or compression.
Continuous locking is made possible by the additional valve integrated in the piston that keeps the two pressure chambers gas-tight. Closing the valve stops the gas exchange between the two chambers and the BLOC-O-LIFT gas spring is locked.
The valve automatically closes as soon as the valve button is released from the outside. Elastic locking can be conveniently used, for example, to absorb shocks, impacts, or peak impulse loads comfortably (e.g. office chairs and swivel chairs).

  • Variable positioning with elastic or rigid locking
  • Optimal weight compensation during lifting, lowering, opening, and closing
  • Locking in extended or compressed position
  • Installation can be specific to orientation or in any orientation, depending on the type of gas spring
  • Wide selection of sizes, force variants, and end fittings
  • BLOC-O-LIFT gas springs have a compact design, suitable for installation in any type of space
  • BLOC-O-LIFT gas springs are maintenance-free, even with high loads, with a long service life
  • Available with elastic or rigid locking in tension or compression. This function can also be implemented, as an option, regardless of position.
  • Also available with a short release stroke of only 1 mm (standard is 2.5 mm) for particularly easy control.
  • On request, also suitable for permanent release, for example on swivel chairs for backrest oscillation.

Shock absorbers and STAB-O-SHOC

Shock absorbers are necessary to positively influence the characteristics of movements and vibrations. They are customized based on the specific application.
Hydraulic shock absorbers consist of a pressure tube, a piston rod system, and attachment elements. When a movement occurs, the filling medium – oil – is compressed through properly sized holes within the piston, generating the desired damping force.

  • Shock absorbers are defined individually based on the particularities of each application.
  • For independent or position-dependent mounting.
  • As a shock absorber with or without extension force.
  • With damping forces that act in one direction or in both compression and tension directions.
  • Vibration damping at specific frequencies upon request (frequency-dependent damping).
  • Compact size with maximum reliability and durability.
  • For operating temperatures between -40°C and +130°C.
  • Defined damping characteristic, linear, progressive or regressive for optimal results.
  • Dependent damping part on stroke, e.g. for steering and driver’s seat.
  • Damping behavior dependent on frequency.
  • Special shock absorbers for bicycles.
  • Electrically adjustable shock absorbers.
  • Various attachment variants for easy installation.
