Steel and Lead Weights are a key component of any sash window, used to counterbalance the weight of the panel when opening and closing, allowing your window to remain still in any position. Our selection of sash window weights are a time-tested product and will ensure your windows function effectively.
Available in a selection of weights, sizes and shapes, our collection of steel, lead and make weights will provide you with the perfect solution to get the job done. Choose from a range of sizes including 38mm & 45mm 600mm sticks of lead to an array of weights from 6lb to 32lb ready to be delivered to you next day.
You can also explore our other sash hardware products including our sash window cords, sash window pulleys, staff and parting beads, spiral balances, sash window seals, sash window furniture, sash window weights, and sash window restrictors.
Our weights range in weight from 6lb up to 32lb depending on your needs. It's important for the counterbalance to be heavier than the top sash. This helps to keep the top sash tightly shut without any gaps.
Finding the weights is fairly simple. Start by grabbing the sash cord just outside of the pully and pulling it out all of the way. This is how you'll find the top of the pocket cover that needs to be cut for the weights to be added. For cords that are intact, just grab the cord outside of the pulley and give it a pull.
Modern sash windows work with their mechanisms hidden inside the frame, similar to what you would find with a traditional sash window. However, there are some modern sash systems that use a loaded spring mechanism as opposed to a weight and cord. Newer sash windows also will use a torsion balance instead of a counter balance.
