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
< Back to All Windows
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.
