ARC Window Pulleys

When you are in charge of a restoration window or door project for a historic building, the job requires you to be particular about the details. Not just any old hardware will do. That’s why Architectural Resource Center proudly offers a wide range of hardware for the windows and doors. We say 'proudly' because we are one of the only providers to offer such a large variety at such a high quality. Your satisfaction is paramount, so we provide everything from in-stock items to complete custom forgings engineered and fabricated to meet your performance and design specifications. We can even reproduce and improve original hardware in order to meet modern performance requirements. The possibilities are endless.

The Sash Pulley
For example, lets look at our Sash Pulley. Sash Pulleys are the unsung heroes of architecture. Thanks to the laws of physics, year after year they quietly and efficiently produce the mechanical advantage that enables us to open enormously heavy windows. Without the help of this very simple device, ventilation in many buildings and offices would be extremely difficult -- if not impossible. We count on pulleys to work not only for today, but for years to come. Therefore, sash pulley are no place to cut corners.

Fortunately, when partnering with Architectural Resource Center, you won’t have to. ARC goes the extra mile to produce the strongest pulleys possible - forged brass, steel pin, sealed ball bearing - at the lowest possible price. We then guarantee them for LIFE!!

The ARC Difference
Many pulleys are create by cutting and bending sheet metal to create the housing for the pulley. This results in an inferior product. ARC pulleys are made of solid forged brass, designed to meet or exceed performance requirements for demanding applications, but also accomodate your budget. In fact, our pulleys are consiserably less expensive than our competitors yet ten times stronger!

Other pulleys are sand casted, which increases strength, but still cannot carry the load of an ARC pulley. Our forging process produces pulleys which exhibit superiority in strength as well as appearance.

Here are the three features of ARC engineering that yield the exceptional structural strength of our pulleys:

1. Forged Metal – forging is a multi-step process that insures greater strength than casting or stamping. While forging takes a little longer the resulting product demonstrates greater strength and performance.
2. Sealed Ball Bearings – ball bearings operate more smoothly using less force than plain bearings. They are less likely to wear out or bind, and require no maintenance or lubrication. This makes them ideal for window hardware.
3. CNC Machined – every ARC pulley is custom-machined at no additional cost to you. Computer Numeric Control machinery allows for greater precision in machining at a much lower cost and turnaround time. We are able to engineer each piece to the optimal tolerances that will give your product the best performance.

Since we had our pulleys tested by an independent engineering house, we can confidently attest to our pulley strength and quality - ten times the strength while being considerably less expensive than our competitors. Our lean manufacturing processes allow us to produce a better product for less, and pass on the savings to you! Our pulleys are guaranteed for life, so trust our pulleys to perform flawlessly for years to come.

ARC Pulleys come in every finish you need –
Not only can we match or exceed your technical specs, we also offer a number of standard and custom finishes so that you can perfectly match the appearance of the original hardware. There is no question that The Architectural Resource Center can provide exactly what you need when it comes to window and door hardware.
