Rollyson Aluminum Window Part

A home owner from Reston, VA says:
Hello

We have a townhouse built in 1993 which has the Rollyson Aluminum Windows.

In a lot of the windows in our home, the strip holding the pane is chipped (see photo 3) and we were wondering if you stocked this part or could recomend a similar part. We do need quite a lot of these strips as our house has approx 30-40 windows.

Please see attached photo's of the part we are looking for.


Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks for posting. I would start out by looking at our 55-158-6 and seeing how this compares to your glazing. If you aren't sure, could you remove a small sample and take a picture of it's cross-section? We would need to see its shape.
A quick learner from Reston says:
Perfect, just ordered these.
Was wondering if you have or could recommend a tool to be able to cut these for fitting the corners.
Thanks

Great! The 55-186-6 is a very rigid glazing, so you might want to use a fine tooth hacksaw.
A handy person from Indiana says:
Hi "a quick learner." I have the same problem, house built in 1992. Same windows. Did these strips work and fit well?

Dave from Swisco, do you sell them in longer lengths?

Hello! The 55-158-6 is a very unique vinyl glazing, and the longest length available is 6'.
A quick learner from Reston says:
Sorry for the late response but yes, these fitted and worked perfect. I did however use a contractor to install them. Going to be ordering some more shortly..
