Gas Springs, Dampers & Custom Spring Designs
Industrial Gas Springs, Inc., was established over 20 years ago to manufacture and supply multiple gas spring solutions, from high volume gas springs to custom gas springs which have successfully withstood the rigors of being launched and operated in space. Gas springs (often called gas pressure springs, gas struts, or gas shocks) are used in the opening, closing, tilting and dampening of flaps in a number of industries. To service the needs of customers when time is limited, IGS stocks many thousands of gas springs, struts, and dampers in a range of sizes which can be pressurized, and end fitted to specific customer requirements and dispatched within 24 hours.

Compression Gas Springs
Compression gas springs are the most common type of gas spring, or gas strut, and are used for standard lifting, opening and counterbalance applications where a contained force device is needed.
Adjustable Locking Gas Springs
A locking gas spring incorporates a mechanism to enable the rod to be locked at any point in its travel. This set height or position, ensures worker safety, the stability of the lift platform or the equipment.
Safety Locking Shroud Springs
A safety locking shroud springs that utilize a mechanical locking device to lock the gas spring in a fully extended position.
Tension & Traction Gas Springs
Also referred to as traction springs, these units operate the opposite of compression gas springs; they retract rather than extend.
Stainless Steel Gas Springs
We stock the most popular 316L stainless steel compression gas springs, used for applications that require protection against corrosion, or that need to be sanitized.
Gas Spring Dampers
Unlike gas springs that generate force, dampers are used to control closing speed. They ensure that any equipment does not release too quickly, protecting the equipment and the safety of workers.
Custom Gas Spring Design
When standard gas springs are not suitable, IGS product specialists will design custom gas springs for your specific application.
