New Balances for Vinyl Windows

Posted Sep 19, 2019

Balance_Notch_SMMI Windows and Doors will soon have new balances on all vinyl windows produced out of our Pennsylvania and Texas facilities. The new balances will now be specifically left and right handed. Previously, the balances could be installed in either jamb.

The new left- and right-handed balances will increase the strength and durability of the cam, helping to reduce the possibility of balance breakage in the field. The handed cam balances can be used interchangeably with the current balance.

As part of this change, we will begin manufacturing our 1650 double-hung windows with a balance takeout notch on the exterior side of the jambs to enable easier and more convenient access to balance.
