High-performance struts for hold-open and lock-in-place applications

QRP, a US based PEM company, has introduced a series of high-performance struts designed for hold-open and lock-in-place applications in the aerospace and military industries.

All strut types have been engineered to offer ideal solutions for engine cowlings, access panels, and maintenance doors, among other end-uses.

QRP's scissor struts in particular have been qualified for JSFM62 and JSFM64 (Joint Strike Fighter) programmes by meeting or exceeding JSFM specifications for tension, compression, and handling loads.

In addition to scissor versions, the product line-up includes telescoping struts, fixed-length struts, spring struts, and hold-open rods. Depending on type, struts can be specified with automatic or manual lock-in features. Secondary safety-locking features also can be provided.

QRP is a PEM company and has been a leading manufacturer of quick release pins, lanyards and latches for more than 30 years.
