STABILUS Brings New Technology To The Automotive Lift Support Market

ZF Aftermarket is the authorized distributor for the aftermarket brand, STABILUS.

ZF Aftermarket has announced the launch of a new technology to the STABILUS product line: the POWERISE lift support. As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of gas-charged lift supports, STABILUS is setting a new industry standard with the launch of its latest powerized lift support. ZF Aftermarket is the authorized distributor for the aftermarket brand, STABILUS.

Convenience For The Consumers & The Technician

ZF says the STABILUS-branded POWERISE lift support offers consumers a convenient hands-free operation when maneuvering their vehicle’s hatch. “POWERISE is a self-contained, electromechanical lift support that encompasses all necessary elements to open and close heavy tailgates automatically,” said Tom Galla, ZF Aftermarket senior product manager.

This all-in-one automatic drive system gives users the ability to remotely open and close their vehicle’s hatch in a matter of seconds, providing consumers with a more efficient use of their time when opening and closing their vehicle’s hatch, ZF says.

This technology is not only convenient for the driver, but also for the installer, the company says. Combining the motor, lift support and connection into one system, STABILUS has created a simplified plug-and-play installation process. This combination also reduces the number of parts an installer needs to complete the installation.

“With the addition of POWERISE to ZF Aftermarket’s All Makes/Models lift support product line, automotive repair businesses will have greater access to genuine replacement units. This will enable them to repair customers’ vehicles faster and with OE-quality parts,” said Galla.

A New Kind of Technology

The POWERISE lift support currently offers four SKUs. As the product continues to grow in use, so will the number of vehicle applications and part numbers. The current applications for the STABILUS POWERISE are:

  • 2010-‘15 – BMW X3 Hatch
  • 2014 – Jeep Grand Cherokee Hatch
  • 2012-’15 – Ford Escape Hatch

Before this STABILUS launch, replacement POWERISE units were only offered through car dealerships. “The addition of POWERISE to the STABILUS aftermarket product range establishes the brand as a technology leader, with the most comprehensive range of product for OE and aftermarket solutions,” said Galla.
