What are Mechanical Struts?

Raymond® Mechanical Struts are a counterbalance solution that can perform where other strut products cannot. They are a seal-less, gas-less, and oil-less counterbalance solution that does not require maintenance and can function in numerous industries. A highly reliable product, Mechanical Struts can produce consistent, repeatable loads at varying intervals. Ideal for applications that cannot risk failure and in environments where corrosion is a concern or where temperatures may be extremely high or low.

Compared to SPD™ Gas Struts, Mechanical Struts differ because of their design. They do not have a seal, internal gasses, or oils. Their completely mechanical design gives them a longer lifecycle than Gas Struts and makes them compatible with industries that have contamination concerns.

Mechanical Struts are used anywhere Gas Struts can be installed but are best for applications in demanding environments and where failure is unacceptable. They have been used in divider panels in refrigerated transportation units, in automobile production lines during the painting process, and with covers, hatches, and lids both above and below ground in a variety of applications.
