spiral balance for hurricane window

A home owner from USA says:
I need a spiral balance and I don't know which one to order. The tube is 28 inches long and it has a black tip. This is for a hurricane rated window. Thanks for the help.

You could have a S600-28 with a Black Tip, but I can't be sure. Is the diameter of the outer tube 5/8"? Also, is the window tilt or non-tilt?
A quick learner says:
The window is a non-tilt and the diameter of the tube is 5/8".
Thanks again

Thank you. This balance will have to be specially made, as it has a unique color tip for this Series. Check out this custom spiral balance request form that I've started for you based on your specifications and fill out the rest of the information. One of our representatives will get back to you shortly thereafter with a price quote and an item to add to your cart.

Keep in mind that two S500-28 spiral balances with a Black Tip can carry a window sash weight range of 31 through 40 pounds. If your sash weight does not fall within that range, please let me know!
