SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Replacement channel balance 29 9 BSI R0

A quick learner from Vero Beach Florida says:

The Window Sash weighs 32 pounds. Length of the balancers is 30''. The top looks like 19-005 the bottom looks like 15-002.

If I can't use a stock balance to replace those, how do I order 4 of those custom-made?

Please advise asap.

Thanks for posting, Matt. With a 19-005 top attachment and 15-002 bottom shoe, it sounds like you will, indeed, need a custom balance. Please just double check the dimensions of your bottom shoe; the difference between our 15-002 and 15-001 can be subtle, but it is vital to your balance's operation.

Now, looking at the weight of your sash, we have two choices for the stamp option:

2950 will carry a window sash weight range of 28 through and including 32 pounds, and:

2960 will carry 32 through and including 35 pounds.

This information is based on 2 balances per sash. Balances are designed assuming friction in the jamb weather-strip will carry a portion of the sash weight. Suggested sash weights are approximate.

If the 2950 stamp would work best with your sash weight, please fill out the rest of this Custom Channel Balance Order Form with a 2950 Stamp that I have started for you.

If the 2960 would be better, please fill out this Custom Channel Balance Order Form with a 2960 stamp.

One of our representatives will be in contact with you shortly thereafter.
