Horizontal Sliding Replacement Windows

Sliding windows offer simplicity and a sleek look

Sliding windows have one fixed sash and a moving sash that glides horizontally alongside the other. This replacement style is most loved for its ease of accessibility, wide design and flat, compact profile.

Commonly known as: horizontal sliding windows, gliding windows, slider windows

Slide 1 / 4

Sliding windows have a single panel that slides open horizontally. They provide a large area of glass — while still providing an operable sash — letting in a significant amount of natural light and fresh air into a home.

Sliding windows operate similarly to a single-hung window where a single sash glides over a fixed sash, but sliding windows open horizontally rather than vertically. They are a classic option and have stayed popular through their versatility, durability and scalability.

This style is a great replacement option in areas to where your reach is limited. It typically works best for large openings that are wider than they are tall.  

  • Compact functionality
  • Ease of operation
  • Option of an exterior screen
  • Significant ventilation
  • Wide views
  • Great for use in wide spaces
  • Durability
  • Works best in areas that open to a deck or patio because the window doesn’t protrude into the outside living area
  • Great for sunrooms where large operable windows are desired
  • Popular in areas with limited space or exterior walkways or living spaces close to the window
