Gas springs

Gas springs are extremely versatile components that are used in a wide range of industries. The large selection of different sizes and strengths and the simple attachment enable a very wide range of applications and functions. Wherever masses need to be moved, lifted or held in a controlled manner and with a controlled amount of force, gas springs are the component of choice.  


The materials used for the cylinder, piston, seals and end fittings of gas springs can vary. The choice of suitable material depends on various factors, including requirements for strength, durability, corrosion resistance, temperature resistance and weight limitations.

Gas spring

Gas springs can facilitate or control the movement of an element, e.g. a door, by maintaining a constant force.

Product range

Rigid locking gas springs

Rigid locking gas springs can block the movement of a component and hold it in a fixed position. This is achieved by a special holding mechanism.

Product range

Spring-loaded locking gas springs

Spring-loaded locking gas springs lock with a certain degree of elasticity. The gas springs therefore offers a certain amount of resilience to absorb shocks or vibrations.

Product range

Gas pull spring

Gas tension springs are used to support or generate tensile forces, i.e. they act in the opposite direction to gas springs. In this way, the gas traction spring acts as an aid for opening movements,
e.g. of flaps or doors.

Product range

Double lift springs

The advantage of double lift springs is that they can work efficiently in both directions, both when compressing and extending. Double lift springs are often used in applications where tensile and compressive forces can occur.

Product range

Oil brakes

An oil brake uses a hydraulic system to generate and control braking force. A master cylinder generates the hydraulic pressure to achieve a controlled deceleration or stop.

Functionality and usage

The functionality of gas springs is based on the principle of pneumatics, i.e. the use of compressed air to perform mechanical work. The basic components of a gas spring are the closed pressure tube and the piston rod with piston. Filling the pressure tube with compressed nitrogen creates a variably adjustable counter-pressure that generates the desired spring force. The optimum interaction of the elements used and the high-precision manufacture of all the parts installed are essential for the production of a perfectly functioning gas spring. The correct dosage of hydraulic oil is just as relevant as the diameter of the piston rod and the cylinder volume. High-quality gas springs, such as those manufactured by Bauckhage, are ideal for the precise opening and secure holding of flaps, ceilings and hatches in industry and vehicle construction. Lifting, moving and adjusting, even of heavy elements, is no problem with Bauckhage gas springs.

The gas spring supports the manual force, such as that used to open a hatch, so that it can be moved comfortably, precisely and with little effort. Gas springs are used in medical technology as well as in the therapeutic field. The controlled lifting, adjustment and fixing of treatment devices, chairs and couches is a key area of application here. Mechanical engineering and the furniture industry also use gas springs in a wide variety of applications.

Over 50 years of experience make Bauckhage a professional partner in all areas of application. Gas springs from Bauckhage guarantee maximum reliability and durability in all areas.

Material and surface

Gas springs are made of various materials that are important for their structural integrity and functionality. They help to ensure that gas springs are robust, corrosion-resistant and durable to meet the requirements of different applications.



  • Piston rod: The piston rod of a gas spring is made of high-quality steel, as it requires strength and resistance to bending and corrosion.
  • Seals: The seals in a gas spring are usually made of elastomeric materials such as rubber or plastic, which ensure a reliable seal.


Surface coatings:

  • Galvanisation: Galvanising is a frequently used surface coating for gas springs. A thin layer of zinc is applied to the metal parts to protect them from corrosion.
  • Paintwork: Our gas springs are always painted to provide an aesthetic improvement or additional protection.
