Econoloc – Positively Locking Spring
Econoloc gas springs eliminate the need for separate safety rods. They positively lock when fully‐extended, protecting the operator from potential injury in the event of overload or misuse.
The Econoloc is manually‐released by applying thumb pressure to the designated area of the safety locking shroud, allowing the gas spring to compress in a controlled manner. The safety locking shroud is finished with the same coating as the gas spring body, providing excellent corrosion‐resistance. A guide inside the shroud prevents scratching of the gas spring cylinder.
The Econoloc range of gas springs combine superior quality with the added safety feature required in many heavy duty applications such as trucks, construction machinery, switch gear and agricultural equipment. A single Econoloc gas spring is usually used in conjunction with a standard Swift & Sure version.
An econoloc gives benefits over a standard gas spring due to the locking shroud that is fitted to the gas spring. This locking shroud ensures that the gas spring can not be closed unless this shroud is unlocked. This allows operators to work underneath a heavy application without the risk of injury.
