Light, air, safety: windows and folding-arm awnings Gas springs and dampers for construction
Windows are both functional and stylish. They let the outdoors in and provide light, fresh air, shade, and safety. And awnings protect us from rain and sunlight, whether on the patio at home or on mobile retail vehicles and other mobile applications.
In the wide-ranging portfolio of Stabilus gas springs and dampers, you’ll find the right solution for every application from both a technical and design standpoint. The same holds true for skylights and windows for egress and smoke ventilation, which have high requirements for ease of operation and secure functionality – even in critical situations such as a power outage or fire.
Awnings are an increasingly popular option for sun shading. Unlike patio umbrellas that take up excessive space when bad weather threatens, the permanent attachment of awnings means they generally require less work. Moreover, the structure is considerably lighter with our gas springs, leaving more freedom for dreaming up design ideas.
Stabilus gas springs have a uniform force curve, as opposed to conventional tension springs, which have an ever-increasing force curve. This generally makes it easier to extend and retract awnings. Our gas springs also extend the life of the awning material by softening traction forces.
