Default Heavier racquets needed for hardhitting juniors?

When would be the time to switch to a new, heavier, racquet for an advancing hardhitting junior?

In my case:
my daughter 14 years old, hardhitter, just starting to grow fast, plays for the last 3 years with standard lenght 270grams /9,5 oz? unstrung weight racquets. Solid strokes with easy racquethandling.

I'm convinced she can handle heavier racquets easily, but dont want to risk injuries. What's the best thing to do?
- Experiment with leadtape?
- Try a heavier racquet with similar swingweight?
- Demo different racquets and then try the racquet she most likes?
- Other?
