In addition to replacing failed antique tape balances, tape balances are useful when retrofitting antique single glazed sash with heavier double glazed sash as frequently existing pockets cannot accommodate the larger sash weights required. High capacity tape balances may be installed in place of the existing sash pulleys saving time and money.
Tape balances are available to counterbalance sash weighing up to 105 lbs.
Works like a tape measure. Spring steel tape feeds out of balance when pressure is applied. Hook is attached to bottom corner of sash. Balance is installed flush in window jamb towards the top.
Available for larger weight capacities with longer tapes for larger windows.
Frequently used in older homes & businesses where a wall of double hung sash was required. Sash could be installed closer together by eliminating the need for pockets for the counterbalance weights. Also useful for retrofitting older sash without counterbalances.
Also available in overhead mount version.
