Spiral Balances

Designed to act as a counterbalance to the sash, and also be able to hold the window in any position, Caldwell can provide spiral balances made to fit both tilt-in and non-tilt sash window configurations. Our spiral balances are also designed to provide some opening assistance to benefit the end-user’s operation, whilst also facilitating a smooth and easy sliding action.

Caldwell can supply balances suited to all frame materials and varying load bearing levels, including Spirex, Alumatilt and Spiralift models.

Spirex

Spirex spiral sash balancesSpirex balances are predominantly suited for use in non-tilting timber window frames and lighter weight window configurations such as secondary glazing screens. Spirex balances are single sprung, and once installed within the window they can be adjusted to appropriate tensions. They are often selected by specifiers and fabricators looking to install traditional, cost effective sash balances.

Key features and design specifications of Spirex balances:

  • Suitable for installation in sashes with weight between 1kg – 13.5kg
