Used in sliding sash windows as the counter balance.
Often when rennovating old windows using cast weights with single glazed glass and changing to double glazed the weight of the sash is thus increased but the space housing the cast weight remains the same or smaller so a denser heavier material is required which is where lead comes in, for its size lead is far heavier than cast so it can take up the same or less space and be heavier.
We often stock lead bars in store in a square diameter of either 38mm or 45mm with a hole drilled in the centre.
These bars come in a 1.2m length which we can cut to your desired weight.
45mm is 20.8mm per 1lb
38mm is 30.0mm per 1lb
This item is a collection only item due to it's weight.
