1970's Andersen Perma-Shield gliding patio door

A home owner from Wapakoneta, Ohio says:

Hello, I am trying to find glazing beads for my Andersen Perma-Shield gliding door. I just submitted a contact form on your website with a description. I believe the door model is 8068L or PSII 8L based on the door and glass measurements and what I could find on the internet. The stationary panel in all vinyl and in very good condition. The operating panel is all wood and in very good shape except for the wooden glazing strips. About a year ago I had the double pane glass replaced and the contractor damaged the strips as shown in the pics. Also the seals on the windows have started to leak so I am having these replaced again but was hoping to find glazing strips that will work whether vinyl or wood. I did locate what I believe are correct part numbers for this door but they are vinyl so I'm not sure if that would work. Can you help me find the correct parts? Thanks

Thanks for writing in. I'm afraid I can't say for sure what glazing you need without pictures of samples removed from the window that showcase the glazing bead's 'end profile'. This, along with dimensions, is the most reliable way of determining what you need. In the time being, you can view our Andersen Glazing Beads, the 55-303, 55-306, and 55-301 and see if one of these might be what you need.
