Spiral Sash Balances

The combination of stainless steel spiral rod torsion and tension springs, produces a self contained balancing device capable of maintaining the equilibrium of a sash window at any point in the travel of the sash.

  • Smooth and easy sash operation.
  • High quality materials.
  • Guaranteed for 10 years.
  • Choice of fixing arrangements.
  • Easy adjustments.

Smooth and easy sash operation in comparison to other methods of sash balancing. Sash balances are an ideal alternative to sash weights at a fraction of the cost. With the new GGF Glazing Regulations requiring thicker double glazed units therefore also requiring larger timber sections, this is where spiral balances come into their own, disregarding the need for a box cavity therefore giving you a larger window opening.

Made of high quality materials: stainless steel spiral rod with PVC tubing giving long life to spiral sash balances.

Tandem Balances

For applications exceeding 120lbs (54.5kgs) consideration should be given in using tandem balances, i.e. 4 no. balances per sash.

Touchwood will calculate the length of the balance required for each sash from the data given by the customer on our spiral balance order form. Whilst we can calculate the weight of glazed sashes automatically, the customer should note that this is at their own risk and it is more prudent to give accurate glazed weights at the time of ordering.

Standard D Type

These are light duty, economical general purpose balances for domestic or commercial applications. They are manufactured in 3 weight groups suitable for sashes having glazed weights of up to 18.15kgs (40lbs) and serving hatches. All "D" type balances are adjustable within their weight range to suit actual glazed sash weights. A special adjustment tool is available. Where maximum assisted lift is required it is advisable to use 'F' type balances when sash weights exceed 18.18kgs (40lbs).

Rapid Tensioner

Rapid Tensioner enables ease of adjustment of our D type spiral balances. It gives you the ability to apply tension with easier access to the spiral balance by using a standard screwdriver, removing the need of a tension key.
