Is there a recommended space constraint for constant springs?

The standard dimensions of the constants are given in the catalog - length of the can and frame length, etc. It depends upon the load and travel of the particular constant. Some situations require more vertical space and some require more horizontal space based upon the constant required. But we make other constants outside of our normal standard constants as well.

For base type constant supports there will often be lateral loads due to friction as the pipe moves. Are there lateral load limits provided or is there some way to eliminate such load transfer?
