Pella aluminum weatherstripping

A contractor from Westport MA says:
I am replacing the weather striping on Pella awning windows installed in 1962. The old weather striping is aluminum. Will your product #55-169 work on an older Pella window? Attached is a picture of the end with the approximate dimensions. Mike

Hey Mike, thanks for posting on the discussion board.

Take a look at the Swisco 55-106 Weatherstripping. It is made out of vinyl, but should work as a replacement.
A contractor from Westport says:
Is their any reason for using the 55-106 and not the 55-169? Have people had success on Pella windows before with the 169?

It seems either one should work with your application, however it is up to you to determine which one to use. I am not certain whether or not others have had success using this on their Pella windows.
