Frequently Asked Questions

Shipping & Returns

1 . What is a fixed-force gas strut?

Fixed force gas struts come with their force pre-set at the factory, making them ready for installation upon delivery. These struts are suitable for applications where the required force is known and no additional adjustments are needed. They are particularly well-suited for high-volume applications, as they can be fitted without the need for pressure adjustments.

2 . My order history has disappeared from my account. Can I get it back?

Any orders from this point with any account (new or current) will store order information.

4 . Why can I not order locking gas struts online?

There are a large number of variants for locking gas struts, so these are manufactured to order. Contact our technical sales team for more information on our locking gas struts and how to order.

5 . What does it mean if the website shows "Contact us" or shows a lead time?

If "contact us" is shown this could be due to variable lead times on these parts, depending upon manufacturing or supplier lead times.

Where a lead time is given it will indicate that the part is currently not in stock, this means we have stock due in to us within this time or that there may be a manufacturing lead time to have this part into stock and ready for shipping. 

6 . How do I know the parts I require are in stock?

This information is given on the specific product page in question, which is connected to our internal live stock system. Parts in stock will usually be available to be shipped as part of our next-day delivery service (please order by 1.00 pm).
