How To Measure Your New Project

Gas struts can be tricky especially when it comes to new projects.

Knowing which gas strut you need, what pressure and where to mount them can be very confusing.  We realised people were ordering multiple sets, different pressures and spending hours moving the struts around trying to make them work.

We wanted to take the frustration out.

Our Design Team will make sure you have everything you need to make your project a success including

  • a clear design plan showing you where to mount your struts
  • you'll know exactly what struts you need and the correct force required so they work
  • you'll know what brackets and where to mount them
  • and best of all, we guarantee it will work*
