Thanks for posting! The only standard stamp we have available for the S385-34 that is stronger than the 3340 option is the 3350 option. Two balances working together with this stamp can support a window sash weight of 28 through 32 pounds. What is the weight of your window sash? Does it fall within that range? Remove the sash and place it on a scale to determine its weight and let me know.
A quick learner from West Palm Beach says:
the window weighs 45 pounds.
can u custom make these?

Thanks for the additional information, Joseph. We can definitely custom make this balance for you. We can make them with a 3375 option. Two balances working together with this option can carry a window sash weight range of 42 through 45 pounds.

To begin, take a look at this Custom Channel Balance Order Form that I have started for you and fill out the rest of the information. One of our representatives will contact you shortly thereafter with a quote.
