SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

In need of correct screen frame size and mounting hardware

A quick learner from Utica, illinois says:
Curious if you may offer some assistance. We have numerous double hung windows upstairs, I believe that they are Crestline. They are aluminum clad exterior and wood interior. There have never been screens mounted to the windows, evidently the original owner was to tight to purchase them. There is a groove that is 3/16" wide and approximately 3/16" deep that runs vertically on both sides and horizontally of the top of the exterior portion of the window near the exterior stop.

I was originally thinking that 70-009 push pins and some 7/16" frames would do the trick but there is only about 3/16" on an inch available from the stop to the beginning of the groove, so there is not a lot of room. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, these windows are upstairs and we literally run the AC on a nice 70 degree day since we cannot open any windows. Thank you so much!

We do not carry screens for any one specific window, but our FlexScreen has been known to work for many brands. This is because they install in a different way than your average window screen. See our FlexScreen Homepage for more information on how these work and how you may be able to use them in your application.

I understand that Swisco does not carry screens for one specific window. I am trying to utilize the parts available from Swisco in order to construct my own screens. Thank you for the link but FlexScreen is not available for a track width less than 5/16". The only groove in my double hung windows are 3/16" wide.

In that case, I would suggest having some screens made locally and using the 70-056 top hanger kit along with either the 70-004 or the 70-204. I have used this type of hardware in the past to install screens on wood sashes when no other hardware or clips were available.
