What is a sliding window?
Sliding windows, also known as gliding windows, slider windows or pocket sliders operate horizontally with one sash sliding in a pocket past the other to provide ventilation. The sashes glide on brass rollers to provide easier and smoother operation. Many modern and ranch style homes are designed using the slider window style. The sashes may be lifted out of the pocket for cleaning without a ladder. When in the locked position the sashes are secure and cannot be removed.
Two-Lite Sliding Windows
A two lite slider (photos on left side) also referred to as a two section slider has two equal size sashes. With some sliders, only one sash will operate (bottom left). With other sliders, each sash operates to allow for ventilation from either side of the unit (top left).
Three-Lite Sliding Windows
A three lite slider (photos on right side) also referred to as a three section slider has a fixed center sash with an operative sash on both sides. The fixed center sash may be twice the width of the two operative sashes in a 1/4 – 1/2 – 1/4 configuration (top right). Alternatively, all three sashes can have the same width in a 1/3 – 1/3 – 1/3 configuration (bottom right).
