Lead Counterweights

Lead is a great metal to use for a counterweight. It’s unique combination of high resistance to corrosion, malleability and high density allows for a versatile range of uses. Our quality control procedures guarantee consistent unit weight in our lead counterweights. Custom counterweights have been developed for automotive, marine, environmental equipment, construction equipment, scientific laboratory applications and even recreational use.

Some uses for lead counterweights include:

  • Elevator Weights
  • Lead sash weights (windows)
  • Stage and theater weights
  • Ballast lead weights
  • Aerospace counterbalance weights
  • Curtain weights
  • Divers weights
  • Boat keel weights
  • Race car ballast weights
  • Flagpole weights

Lead counterweights are typically 40% heavier than steel counterweights. This allows our lead counterweights to fit in smaller spaces and have lower centers of gravity. This also allows flexibility as to how the counterweights are positioned, due to the smaller space that it inhabits.
