As window manufacturing becomes more sophisticated and energy efficient, shade technology continues to gravitate towards cordless operation and positioning, which creates a need for designers to move towards more innovative window spring assemblies. At Vulcan Spring, we’ve built our reputation by innovating and delivering high-volume quantities of springs for window and shade manufacturers. Our springs work the first time and for a long time—with some of the highest life cycles in the industry.
Windows and window shades can play a vital role in our everyday lives, from controlling the temperature and light to providing instant privacy. While the pandemic caused some disruptions to the window spring and window shade industry, at-home DIY projects increased and the regular flow of commercial and residential construction quickly picked back up.
Most Popular Springs for Windows & Window Shades
Constant Force Springs
Constant Force springs, or Conforce® springs, offer high force output with a small space requirement. They provide long linear reach with minimal force buildup and are integral to constant force window balancing.
Constant Torque Springs
Constant Torque springs, or Contorque® springs, for windows can provide high torque with small space requirements and can also be designed to produce positive or negative gradient output torque.
Power springs, which feature smooth winding and retracting capability, enable window shade designs with minimal cord retraction or no cord at all.
Pullbox® Pro tethers are used to keep motorized shading and skylight systems taut from the top and bottom.
