Sliding windows glide open horizontally along a track for easy operation.
Horizontal slider windows slide to the left or right for easy-to-open capabilities allowing in natural light and fresh air.
Sliding windows provide large unobstructed views, plenty of ventilation and are perfect for large horizontal spaces.
Sliding windows could have one or multiple operating sashes or be combined with picture windows. The operating sashes on sliding windows can either tilt in, swing in, or be removed for easy cleaning of both sides of the glass.
Some people find a sliding glass window easier to open and close than a crank-style window.
Since they slide open without protruding, horizontal sliders are an excellent choice for high traffic areas like decks, walkways or areas where landscaping may be positioned close to the house.
Horizontal slider windows are a favorite for contemporary style homes and are also popular for satisfying bedroom egress requirements. In a single slider, one sash slides to open. In a double slider, both sashes open, which can be great for providing air circulation to a room.
