Sash Coil Balance

A quick learner from Valencia, California, USA says:
Dear Sir,
I wish to buy 2 new coil balances for a non-tilting sash style uPVC window. My existing balances ones are the 1/2 inch type, 27 inches long and with the following markings "26 5 JW CMC 11". The end fittings are as per the attached photographs. Please would you advise which series I should order.
Regards
Alison

Thanks for posting! Before I can offer an applicable replacement for this channel balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?

Thanks Tom,
We need the 15-004 shoe.

Great! In that case, I recommend that you look at our S385-27 channel balance with a 2650 option. Does that look about right? Let me know what you think.
