Gas Strut Ball Ends
At Metrol Springs, we can manufacture an extensive selection of lengths and diameters to ensure we have precisely whatever specifications our next customer requires.
Our steel gas strut ball ends come with female threads ranging from M6, M8, M10 and M14. With various lengths, from a small 18mm to a larger 35mm. You can also get ball diameters from 8mm to 30mm.
Our plastic gas strut ball joint ends have an M selection ranging from M6 to M8 and a length from 18mm to 25mm, but these require the strut force to be less than 400N.
Essential Advice on Using High-Quality Gas Strut Ball End Fittings
As experienced gas strut end fittings manufacturers, we understand the best ways that our products should be employed. Here's advice on how to get the most out of your fittings:
- Wherever possible, we recommend choosing our high-quality ball joints to avoid side loading. A ball joint will minimise the effect of sideloading the gas strut it's attached to.
- You should also ensure that your ball joint end fittings have their stud fixed to the socket and the clip is firmly in position.
- Whether a ball joint end fitting is possible or not, make sure that your chosen end fittings are in line to avoid side loading.
- Always ensure that your end fittings are fully screwed to the strut before installing them into your application.
Additionally, ensuring that your gas struts will match your chosen end fittings is essential.
