Koblenz, May 16, 2017 – Stabilus, a leading supplier of gas springs, dampers and electro-mechanical drives for motion control, will present advanced technology for lifting and lowering single-column tables at the “interzum” furniture trade fair in Cologne. In the sit-stand column, the BLOC-O-LIFT® T gas spring with turn-stop function developed by Stabilus will be used in table columns for the first time. This makes these sit-stand single-column tables suitable for sitting and standing. Stabilus supplies the complete column, including the gas spring, mechanical guides and conical connectors. All the table manufacturers need to do then is define the table top and the foot. This new solution has an adjustment range of 45 cm maximum, allowing the sit-stand single-column table to reach an extended length of up to 100 cm. The gas springs can be locked and are ideal for height adjustment with even force distribution. The standard tube diameter is only 50 mm.  

With the help of Stabilus technology, the sit-stand single-column table can be locked either by a hand or a foot lever, making adjusting the table height easy and convenient. The BLOC-O-LIFT® T gas spring from Stabilus has an especially flat spring characteristic curve, providing almost even force assist over the entire stroke. This makes it easy to adjust the table top, regardless of its weight, without the table losing stability or strength. 

Fred Häring, Vice President Commercial Furniture at Stabilus, said: “By developing the complete sit-stand single-column using our proven BLOC-O-LIFT® gas spring, Stabilus has again proven its broad competence and experience as a system developer and supplier. With modern technology for motion control, the functionality of even seemingly standard products, such as table columns, can be advanced and significantly improved to benefit the end user.”

Stabilus has decades of comprehensive experience in the development of solutions for motion control in different industries, ranging from automotive, machinery manufacturing, agriculture to office and kitchen furniture as well as medical technology and sustainable energies. The BLOC-O-LIFT® T has been installed successfully in furniture, especially in single- and double-column tables, desks, nightstands, or height-adjustable desk tops. The tried-and-true technology meets the highest quality requirements. Gas springs, dampers and electromechanical drives from Stabilus are small, light-weight and flexible, allowing them to make pretty much any opening, closing, lifting and lowering as well as adjusting process easy and automatic. In addition, they can protect the products from vibration.
