SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

The sash is heavy

A quick learner from Miami says:
Hi Dear, I have a pair of channel balance need to be replaced. they are from a tempered glass window. Lenght = 27" (metal channel).. I have determined quite sure that your 380-27 will fit my need (the stamp read as 26DS....) But the sash is too heavy, it is 40 Lb. Do you have any suggestion for me ? THANK YOU !!

I think we should be able to help. I would confirm the size of your shoe, though. This looks like it could be our S385-27 channel balance. Let me know if that's closer.

If so, we can custom make you a S385-27 channel balance with a special 2680 option. I just need to know how many you need and I will send you a custom order form and price quote.
