Advice to
Gas Spring Buyers

Safety should have always be a top priority. Therefore, we believe gas springs for metal forming tools should (unless the maximum allowable pressure PS is less than or equal to 0.5 bar) be ordered with the following safety requirements:

1.  Piston rods with an integral safety stop..

2.  Designed, produced and tested according to Pressure Equipment Directive, PED 97/23/EC for a minimum of 2’000’000 full cycles*:

  • at highest allowed charging pressure 
  • at highest allowed running temperature 
  • for all specified mounting methods**

** including top mount, Type C Flange Mounts, according to ISO 11901-2

Please Note: Unless the maximum pressure is less than or equal to 0.5 bar, all gas springs produced, sold, installed and/or used within the EU should be designed, produced and tested in accordance with PED 97/23/EC.

Pressure Vessel

FIBRO Gas Springs are designed, produced and tested according to PED 97/23/EC for 2’000’000 full cycles* at the highest allowed charging pressure, the highest allowed running temperature, and for all specified mounting methods.

* if no other value is specified on the spring
