Upgrading Windows In Older Historical Homes

The Pullman tape or spring balance is an appropriate option for upgrading windows in older historical homes, restoration/renovation projects, or new construction.

The sash balance is a stainless steel tape, greased and wound on a wheel that is mounted on a coiled, high-carbon steel spring inside of a metal case. The balance is connected to the window sash by the tape that hooks onto a bracket.

Each spring-loaded balance is manufactured and sold in various sizes that would offset the weight of a particular sash. Note: two balances are need per sash.
