Weatherstrip for Schuco Sliding Window

#1 Post by twilliam_65 » Sat Aug 15, 2015 10:20 am

Our windows have worked great through the years but one has developed a leak and I can see where the weather stripping is just "ever so slightly" not up against the window frame when the window is in a closed/locked position. It seems the weather stripping has compressed and holds a flat position now; allowing for a small gap.

I have caulked it for the time being and it's working, but it now keeps the window from sliding open, of course.

Schuco pulled out of the US market after we invested in these windows so I'm not sure what our options are anymore.

Appreciate thoughts on replacement weatherstrip material, possible alternatives, etc.

Thank you,

Tom

Dave might have some spares or a resource for them.

Look up Strong Windows on Chicago.

I have some slide parts for that type window but no weatherstripping. I know of no fix for that. Sorry.
