Elevating Safety and Durability with Lifeplus

Special Springs has established itself as an industry innovator, prioritizing safety and durability in all of our products. With our extensive know-how and dedication to research and development, we proudly introduce the Lifeplus Concept, an advanced series of safety devices designed to enhance the safety and lifespan of gas cylinders. This concept includes the OSAS, USAS, OPAS, and SKUDO safety features, all developed through continuous research and the utilization of cutting-edge technologies.

OSAS, Over Stroke Active Safety GAS SPRINGS

OSAS is a safety feature placed at the base of the body. It is made of a component with a controlled deformation area. Exhausts pressure in a controlled and complete manner, when the gas spring has been overstroked.

USAS, Uncontrolled Speed Active GAS SPRINGS

USAS is the combination of a deformable area of the bushing and the exhaust grooves on the internal body surface. Exhausts pressure in a controlled and complete manner, when the gas spring has been overstroked.


OPAS is the combination of a rupture plug (or a calibrated rupture septum) with an exhaust milling on the bottom contact surface of the gas spring. Exhausts the pressure in a controlled and complete manner when it exceeds the maximum allowed value.
