The food truck concept – originally from the USA – is finding its way in Europe. LDA supplies gas springs, which are used as a support to open the various panels of the trucks. Easy to install and use, gas springs are usually the best solution as assistance in opening and closing doors, windows but also used in various applications where guidance and support is necessary to open and close panels in a comfortable and safe way.  Need to find a certain type of gas spring? LDA can supply gas springs based on technical drawings, samples of the gas spring that has to be replaced or a simple picture of the sticker.

In the food trucks, there are appliances such as professional coffee machines, ovens and metallic tables for food. To avoid shocks during the travel, the appliances can be equipped with Firestone air springs. Firestone developed the air spring in the late 1930's as a more efficient spring (vibration isolator) for use in vehicle suspensions. These solutions then spread into the industrial market.

Air springs are perfectly suited for vibration isolation. They require no maintenance or lubrication, and boast a very long lifetime.

Firestone Industrial Products Company (FSIP) specializes in air spring manufacturing and technology with a history of more than 80 years of research and development of technologically advanced air springs. The purpose of Firestone Industrial Products is to address the global growth of air suspensions, and further our commitment to our customers with the world's broadest air spring product.
