These characteristics enable the JARRET device to be designed as an energy storing device (a spring) or an energy dissipating device (a shock absorber) or a combination of both.
By modifying the geometry of the unit and selecting an appropriate silicone compound, emphasis can be placed either on the energy storing function or on the energy dissipating function.
- Extremely compact.
- Dependable retention of initial characteristics,even after years of non-use.
- Easy installation.
- No maintenance.
- No adjustment necessary in service.
- Elimination of any additional devices for pre-loading because the silicone has been pre-stressed during initial charging.
- Appreciable service life: in normal operating conditions it may reach 5 to 10 years.
