Goods in transit are liable to move around a little. It’s entirely natural and pretty much impossible to prevent, be it movement in the factory, vibration on a delivery vehicle or being tilted whilst fitters are installing the window.
Not surprisingly then, balance springs can sometimes slip out of the “shoe” (a part designed to hold the balance and sash together). Detached balances generally mean a service call is required, something we activley seek to avoid by coming up with innovative designs and techniques. With every Bygone sash window the balances are held firmly in place with a retaining clip, that when snapped into position, locks the balance in place for life.
You will never need to see a service engineer for a detached balance and we won’t have a service call to make.
Externally these are again “putty-lined” to match the chamfered sash, and have an Ovolo design internally to match the glazing beads. Melody has standard depth bars, while Harmony and Symphony have the deeper, more authentic glazing bars.
While most will want to match the patterns of existing or original glazing bars, any design, layout or pattern can be provided… just ask your installer.
