What are Sash Cords and Springs?

Sash cords and springs are integral parts of traditional sash window assemblies. A sash cord is usually a woven cotton or nylon cord that connects the window sash (the part that holds the glass) to the counterweight hidden within the window frame.

Sash springs, on the other hand, can also be found in modern sash windows acting as the counterbalancing mechanism, which can take the place of weights and cords. These seemingly innocuous components bear the weight of the sash, allowing it to move smoothly up and down within the frame. They ensure that you can open and close your windows with ease, rather than requiring brute force.

When working correctly, they hold the window open at any given position, preventing it from slamming shut, a feature you will appreciate on a breezy day. Maintaining these components can be the difference between a window that serves its function effortlessly and one that is a constant struggle to use.

What are Spiral Balances?

A spiral balance is a spring-loaded device that also counteracts the weight of a window sash. The balance itself is housed in a tube and employs a spiral rod that connects to the sash and provides tension to support it.

Spiral balances make the operation of your windows reliable and smooth. As the window sash is raised, the tension in the coil increases, holding the sash in place at the desired height. Conversely, when you lower the window, the tension releases, allowing for a controlled closure.

Spiral balances are often preferred in contemporary window designs for their durability and because they tend to require less maintenance than traditional cord and weight systems.
They are a vital part of window performance, and if they fail, you might find yourself with a window that either won’t stay open or is challenging to open and close.
