A sash window weight, or hung sash window weight, is made of one or more movable panels or sashes. The term refers exclusively to windows where the glazed panels are opened by sliding vertically or horizontally.
They have a hole running through the length of the weight and are used to counter-balance the weight of a sliding sash to hold it in position at any height.
Lead weights are easily cut to size and is denser than steel and iron. When choosing sash weights for any project, we recommend that you check your box size first to ensure the weights you have selected fit.
