Condo Windows - Daniel Island, SC

A home owner from Charleston, SC says:

There are some damaged 12 year old single sash windows in my condo unit. It appears that I will need channel balances, pivot shoes and snap in glazing to do the repairs. There are 100 condo units in our complex and I am quite sure that others are having problems with their windows as the instalation of those in mine appear quite poor.

I would like for you to send me matches for all. Enclosed are photos.

The channel balances shown are 34 inches in length and support a 27 pound sash. They have the number "34D" stamped in them. Their depth is 17/32 and their width is 9/16 to 19/32.

The approximate dimensions of the pivot shoes shown are 15/16 wide by 1 7/8 long by 17/32 deep.

The snap in sash shown is approximately 1 1/8 wide with a profile depth of 3/8.

I will borrow a micrometer and measure these more accurately if need be.

Note that the windows have one fixed sash and the bottom sash that raises tilts out for its cleaning and removal.

Thanks for writing into SWISCO, Jim. Please begin your search with taking a closer look at the 15-167 pivot shoe. Compare your measurements to ours. Personally, I believe the dimensions are very close. As for the balance system, we believe you have Series 770-34 with a 34D spring weight. Take a look. Does this look correct to you? Lastly,for the glazing strip, we need a couple of more photos showing the cross section view with dimensions.
