For further details, see Gas Spring Safety Information
The RV500 is a development of the original series of HR cylinders, combining minimum height with enhanced forces. The RV500 is popular with Mercedes Benz (B83180220000004), BMW (B2 4005), Nissan (K 32 H) and Fiat-Chrysler (075.90.60). They are the ideal choice for every designer for any application, with a wide range of body diameters and initial forces available from stock.
Series RV replaces Series HR & HRF which have been phased out.
