Sash Smart specialises in replacing broken sash window cords and sash spiral balancers. Sash cords are a vital part of a sash window. Over time these can wear and snap, leaving the window hard to open and in some cases dangerous to operate. In order for the window to function properly, new cords will need to be fitted.
NB- A sash cord repair service is required when glazing, repairing or replacing sash windows.
2. SPRING BALANCE REPAIR
Also called spiral balances:
Some sash windows have spiral spring balancers instead of sash cords and weights. These are made up of a plastic tube and a metal torsion spring. Unfortunately, spiral balancers do fail on occasions and need to be replaced in order for the window to function correctly. These spiral balancers are made up according to the size and weight of a particular sash window. Therefore, in order for Sash Smart to supply a suitable replacement, we would need an initial visit to measure your windows and following from this will be able to order the correct size spiral balancers. This service normally takes a couple of days from point of order.
