Sit well, work better, travel in comfort Driver’s seats in commercial vehicles

Whether you’re the driver or the passenger, if you’re on the road sitting a lot and for a long time, comfort seems to be less of a luxury and more of a vital aspect of healthy working practices and comfortable travel.

Here at Stabilus, we have been working intensively on this application for many years. Our gas springs are specially designed to help moving components adapt to the driver’s workplace securely and easily. Our hydraulic dampers help prevent damage to the vehicle and prevent people from being startled or injured.

For ground transportation, construction sites, bus travel, and more

One example of where our gas springs improve ergonomics is in the driver’s seat of large trucks, where they provide the ability to easily adjust the backrest to any position. And our locking gas springs make an appearance in the adjacent buddy seat. Our dampers also provide protection against vibrations and impacts in agricultural, forestry, and construction machinery as well as in intralogistics. 

A further application area of our locking gas springs: passenger seats with seatback and footrest adjustments – whether in airplanes, trains, or travel buses. Simple gas springs are even used in folding seats on public buses. 


The spring characteristics of our gas springs and dampers can be individually customized as needed. Critical factors are the weight of the operator as well as the characteristics of the ground being driven on.
