Sliding window repair

Here's the scenario: We have a sliding, aluminum framed, double-paned, window at work which we open to wait on customers. One side is fixed, one side moves. This is within a large manufacturing facility, and we supply the fasteners, cutting tools, personal safety items, and much more. The window became very hard to slide, right to left, so I took it out to clean the tracks and a good inspection. You just lift it up a bit, bring the bottom section out to you, and the sliding section comes completely out. There are two plastic housings on the bottom, which "pop" into the window frame and these have one roller each within them. The rollers have flat spots, and the pins/axles are worn really bad, the plastic housing is in good condition.Therefore the window just slides on the bottom of the frame. I cannot find anything on this window to state the manufacturers name, just the safety glass info. I searched the net and found so man different types of these plastic brackets with rollers in them, but none match or are even close. Hoping someone out there could recommend a supplier of parts for these type sliding windows, Thanks, David

Alum. frame still have a few parts at box stores or better, older hardware stores that they didn't run out of business yet. Try Ace, too.
