3/8 series 400 balances

A contractor from Jackson, Mississippi says:
I'm trying to figure out what tube lengths & tip colors for an order I need to place. If I go by the tube lengths you show it appears I would have a couple of inches sticking out beyond the top or bottom of each sash. I have different sash heights and weights. I'll attach a pdf of the quantities, sash height

Here are the glass heights:

We used to use Unique balances but it's been so long I've gotten rusty at it!

RECAP OF BALANCES:

2 PAIR BALANCES FOR 31 1/8 TALL SASH, 14.3# GLAZED WEIGHT; GLASS HEIGHT: 28 1/4

1 PAIR BALANCES FOR 31 1/8 TALL SASH, 14.9# GLAZED WEIGHT; GLASS HEIGHT: 28 1/4

I did not point it out but these are 1 3/8" thick sash.

Hope this is what you needed.

Thanks for the help,

Thanks for posting, Bill, and for the detailed information! This should be everything we need. For the windows whose glass heights are 28-1/4", I would recommend our S600-28, each with a red tip. For the final two sashes whose glass height is 20-1/4", I'd recommend S600-20, also with a red tip. Let me know what you think!

Paul, thanks so much. I'll get an order put together for these later today. Appreciate the help!
