Product Code: S600-17

Product Description

Color Tip Sash Weight Range
White 4 to 10 lb
Red 6 to 19 lb
Blue 9 to 28 lb
Black 29 to 40 lb
*This information is based on 2 balances per sash. Balances are designed assuming friction in the jamb weather-strip will carry a portion of the sash weight. Suggested sash weights are approximate.
Good Idea!
Balances are sold individually, however, it is a good idea to replace both window balances at the same time. Pairing a new balance with an old one would cause the new balance to wear out faster.
Helpful Tip!
You should choose the color tip that matches the color tip of the balances you are replacing. If you do not see the tip color available in 'options' or you are unsure of which color to choose: ask our experts for help.
