Spiral Window Balances Overview
Posted by Window Hardware Direct on
Spiral window balances are one of the most common balance systems. Spiral window balances aid in opening windows, as well as holding windows open by utilizing a spiral-shaped rod within a tube. This rod connects to a spring, which is what provides the tension for supporting the sash. The tension is adjusted by being wound (using a tensioning tool) to match the sash it is supporting.
