At Metrol’s facility based in Northampton we are able to complete the whole product process from transforming a concept into a design, prototyping, testing and then volume manufacturing.

This allows for unique bespoke designs that meet every customer’s individual requirements in such a short time.


Located centrally within the UK, our main office and manufacturing facility has seen significant investment over the years with the latest automated CNC machinery.

Bespoke automation and manufacturing systems give Metrol an efficiency to produce high quality innovative products at competitive prices that are demanded globally by our customers.


Metrol’s gas springs can be connected to a control panel, allowing for the adjustment and monitoring of pressure systems. Additionally, gas springs can be connected in series to ensure equal performance from each spring.

Metrol hose systems offer a high degree of flexibility and are o-ring sealed, providing leak free connections.

Gas spring pressure is indicated using either analogue or digital gauges. The digital gauge is also used for remote monitoring, as it alerts the user if the pressure drops.


Metrol’s Gas Springs are designed to be maintenance free during operation, however should the need arise, we offer a full service for testing, charging and overhaul. This can be carried out at our facility in Northampton, through our distributor network or by trained customer personnel, giving further extension of our long life products.

A full range of equipment is available from Metrol including training courses.
