The horizontally sliding window is the most popular residential window in use today. Loaded to provide high energy efficiency, security, ease of operation, and convenience. Locking, sliding shoe and secure pivot bar allow both sashes to slide effortlessly for ventilation and to tilt-in safely for glass surface cleaning. Lack of complicated moving parts allows the window to close tightly and firmly, effectively blocking air infiltration from outside. Having fewer moving parts is great news for energy efficiency, but it also means sliding windows have lower maintenance requirements than many other types of windows. This window can be banked together for larger openings or coupled with a picture window to create several configurations.
Sliding windows are much larger than double-hung windows. Since your eyes take in more from side-to-side than up-and-down, a larger sliding window provides a more natural view. Of course, a larger window also allows for increased natural light and greater ventilation, two other benefits of sliding windows. Some styles can be ordered as double or triple sliders for greater versatility.
