What is a Sliding Window?
Sliding windows are often referred to as a slider or gliding window. Sliding windows have sashes that slide horizontally in either direction (right or left) in a single frame and lift out for easy cleaning. A two-lite sliding window has two independent sashes that slide horizontally for ventilation and ease of cleaning. Another common configuration, the three-lite sliding window, also has two independent sashes on either side of a fixed center sash. Additionally, some sliders can tilt for easy cleaning and maintenance
Where are Sliding Windows Most Commonly Used?
Gliding, or sliding windows, are typically found in rooms where an unobstructed view is desired or where maximum ventilation is needed. And because the sash does not open outward they are a great choice for rooms that face walkways, porches to decks. Replacement slider windows are also common in spaces where it may be difficult to reach to lift or close the window such as above a kitchen sink or behind a garden or soaking tub.
