SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Replacement for Milestone Series 1000 SH Aluminum from Florida Extruders International, Inc.

A home owner from Clermont, Florida says:
Florida Extruders, the manufacture, is out of business. I have several windows that the springs have broken. Balances measures from metal end-to-end 29" with a width of 9/16". Channel is stamped with 28F only. Other information from the label on the windows is: Car # 279-170 Model 1000 SH Rating: H-LC45 1349X1600" (53X63"). I need sets of channel replacements for 3 windows this size. Please advise if you have an acceptable replacements.

I would start by looking at our Series 380 channel balance. I believe this could be a match, but look it over and see what you think.

Clermont homeowner, did you find a channel that worked?
