The S900-28 with the Red tip option will carry a window sash weight range of 10 through and including 22 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.
