The 3230 option. The 3230 stamp will carry a window sash weight range of 18 through 23 pounds.

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.

For replacing 33" Series 380 balances, stamp option 3250 will carry a window sash weight range of 28 through 32 pounds.
