Alrose Products Ltd (British Gas Springs) recently visited the Southampton Boat Show and were shocked to see that nearly a quarter of all Gas Springs we saw in a straw poll were fitted incorrectly. The problems ranged from –
- Fitting upside down
- Over stressing the mounting brackets
- Using regular gas springs when in close proximity to high temperature areas such as engine bays
- Incorrect End fittings on Tension Gas Springs
- Using mild steel springs in a marine environment! Stainless Steel is the only sensible choice.
All these issues on their own may sound minor but can significantly effect the operational life of your Gas Spring, meaning your end user must replace the spring.
