For over 125 years, Pullman Manufacturing Corporation window sash balances have been the standard for double hung wood window restorations and replacements. Pullman window sash balances are the preferred solution for new and existing double-hung wood window installations and for historic renovations and restorations where the original look of the windows must be preserved. An added benefit is the ability to insulate the old lead sash weight pockets during installation when the sash is removed. Pullman replacement sash balances are the easiest way to replace sash springs or original double-hung window sash weights, chains and pulleys. Installation can be completed without removing the window sash via a mounted bracket on top of the sash. Pullman replacement sash balances are available for window sash weights between 5 and 105 pounds. To determine window sash weight, place any ordinary household or bathroom scale on the sill and lower the sash until its full weight is recorded.

(Insulating Glass System)
Lancaster, PA 17601
Residential properties within a historic district must obtain the approval of the Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB), or similar entity, prior to proceeding with window retrofit or modification. The QUANTAPANEL Architectural Low-e Storm Window has been reviewed and approved by a number of such entities throughout the U.S. for use on properties within their designated district. The addition of storm windows does not alter the original window in any way, a fundamental requirement of most HARB’s. Historic property owners now have options. The QUANTAPANEL Insulating Glass System can be installed on the exterior in a color and style that is consistent with the original window. Optionally, the QUANTAPANEL System can be installed on the interior, providing a completely unobstructed view of the window from the outside, and nearly indistinguishable from the inside. In either case, the functional performance benefits desirable for comfortable living can be achieved.

The fans are then hand assembled in our studio to fit your specific design needs. Nowhere is there a hint of mass production – not even in the shipping crates. Our success has caused other companies to attempt to copy our designs. They have offered to make our fans with the most modern techniques of mass production. Be assured that when you buy a Woolen Mill Fan you are not purchasing an assembly line clone.
