There are two methods to install the Gas Strut Kits. The "Standard Installation" is applicable in most applications where the system is being fixed to an existing wall. The drawings show the maximum point of fixing at position A. Fixing beyond the maximum point will result in the closing of the gas strut before the table folds down fully.
The second installation method is the "Rebated Installation" and is applicable where the potential exists to provide a rebate/pocket behind the line of the brackets, it has been proven beneficial to set back the fixing position of the gas strut kit's wall bracket. The standard gas struts do not have added damping for the last 5 to 10 degrees of fall. By setting back the gas struts' wall bracket by 25mm (1"), it will create a softer closing in the last 5 to 10 degrees.
The slider below should shows both the Standard & Rebated installation drawings, but, if you have any problems please let us know on and we will be delighted to help.
