SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

1989 build ALENCO Channel Balance - 28"

A quick learner from Prescott Valley AZ says:
I am only dealing with the channel balance on our largest windows.

The metal portion is 1/2" plus a bit (9/16?) wide and 28" long.

The number on the side reads 2740

Your Q/A on Alenco seems to I.D. replacements for these very units. But your expert eyes will determine if that is correct so Thank You ahead of time.

Right now we have only ONE channel balance in most of the windows so it's not a wonder why they don't work properly ... duh

Thanks for posting. Before I can confirm what Series channel balance you have, I'll have to figure out what your bottom shoe is. Please look at the measurements for our 15-001 and 15-002 bottom shoes and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-1/8" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which measurement more closely resembles your own shoe?

The bottom shoe measures 1 1/8th" more closely than just 1".

Thanks ... we're getting close ... YAY

Great! In that case, take a look at our S390-28 channel balance. Do you think that's a match? I also recommend our 2740 option.
