SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Alcan Glazing Bead

A home owner from Palm Harbor Florida says:
I am the original owner of my 1986 year built Florida townhome that is block construction on both levels - the windows were manufactured by Alcan - the bronze colored glazing bead has detoriated and is brittle.

Please let me know if you have a replacement w/ lip as shown on the attached drawing.

I purchased a lenth of glazing bead locally that does not have the lip and cannot get it to work - I am mechanically inclined - tried every which way . . .

Good afternoon, Bob. You might want to consider our 55-092. I'm not sure if this will work for you, but it appears to be the closest match we have. Do you think you can get it to work?
A quick learner from florida says:
Did the 55-092 work for Bob? I am looking for the same stuff.
A quick learner from Palm Harbor, FL says:
I also would like to know if the 55-092 worked for Bob. His drawings and dimensions are almost exactly the same as mine. We probably have the same windows.
