Flexibles en acier cuivré fabriqués par Abeillon


The gooseneck consists of a spring and sectional wire. The sectional wire is inserted into each turn of the spring, giving it its specific mechanical properties and enabling it to stay put.
The compromise between the length of the gooseneck, its diameter and the weight placed at the end must be taken into account.
It is therefore essential to define a Specification from the outset when defining the product.


The SPRING can be made from:


The SECTIONAL WIRE can be made from:


The combination of spring and sectional wire results in 3 types of gooseneck:

Stainless steel/Brass
Steel/Copper-coated steel
