What are Sliding Windows?
Sliding windows, also called gliders, operate like double hung windows except the sashes move to the right and left instead of up and down. 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.
Sliding windows provide large unobstructed views, plenty of ventilation and are perfect for large horizontal spaces. And because sliding windows do not open out past the plane of the wall, they’re perfect for high traffic areas like decks, walkways or areas where landscaping may be positioned close to the house.
