Also called gliders, sliding windows feature one or more operating sashes that move left to right. This style of sash is ideal for high-traffic areas.
What are Sliding Windows?
Sliding windows, or “gliders,” are windows with one or more operating sashes. They slide left or right rather than up or down like a double hung window. The moveable sashes on sliding windows can swing in, tilt in, or pull out altogether for easy interior and exterior cleaning.
Sliding windows give a room full, uninterrupted outdoor views and excellent ventilation. These windows are perfect for large horizontal spaces near high-traffic areas like decks or walkways. Because their sashes don’t open past the plane of the wall, sliding windows save space and won’t damage landscaping that may be close to the house.
