            Stabilus: A World Leader in Hydropneumatic Devices

            Founded in 1934 in Koblenz, Germany, Stabilus first made its name through the Stabilisator, a hydropneumatic device that was the precursor of hydraulic supports. Through the decades, the brand has established itself as a leader not only in manufacturing automotive hydraulic products such as gas springs, dampers, and power tailgate systems, but also in swivel chair and industrial components.

            Stabilus considers only one characteristic for its undying strength: worldwide quality. By designing its own machines in all production facilities, its products receive the propershaping and hammeringneeded to ensure proper specifications are met. And since its inception, the company now makes more than 140 million units every year. And it's not just about making more high-quality products than its competitors; Stabilus also ensures that its manufacturing processes save energy and resources as well. The company strives to reduce its CO2 emissions on a yearly basis, leading to the production of hydropneumatic products that are friendly to the environment.

            Adaptable gas springs

            Whether it's for lifting, lowering, moving, or adjusting, Stabilus has the right gas spring for the job. Stabilus gas springs are built to provide force assist and ensure optimum weight equalization, allowing users to lift and lower doors, lids, and other loaded objects safely in a controlled manner.

            To minimize mechanical errors, Stabilus gas springs are composed of just the pressure tube, piston and piston rod, and an end fitting. The tube is filled with high-grade nitrogen whose amount is specified according to individual fill pressure, resulting in a more defined speed curve which, in turn, leads to a more comfortable handling of heavy lids and doors. The spring also has OE-style mounting points at the ends to allow for easy installation on common vehicle types. In addition, certain Stabilus models can also support additional functions, such as electric switches, a stop function, as well as a variable lock mechanism.

            For applications where particularly heavy loads are involved, Stabilus offers locking gas springs that provide optimum weight equalization and user-friendly motion no matter the weight of the load. At the heart of the spring is a special piston/valve system that separates two pressure chambers from the spring for easy variable locking. The spring has a valve that, once activated, alters the pressure inside the chambers and locking the spring in position. And once the lever is released, the linear spring characteristic curve of the gas spring will provide an even increase in pressure over the entire stroke. The springs also have a maintenance-free design wherein the entire tube is completely sealed to prevent gas from escaping and contaminants leaking inside.

            Functional dampers

            Suitable for automotive, industrial, and furniture applications, Stabilus manufactures a wide selection of motion and vibration dampers of various sizes, lengths, and end fittings. The dampers have a symmetrical force distribution design that ensures evenly defined damping even when movement is reversed. The damping process also starts instantaneously thanks to its integrated pistons, which also allows for the tension and compression directions to be set individually and independently of each other.
