Our homeowners often refer to Renewal by Andersen sliding windows as a gliding window. These are a great option if you don’t want a window to hang outside of your home near a high-traffic area like a deck or landscaping. Gliding windows are a very practical window. The profile is very thin so you get the maximum window. It gives you a lot of glass visibility. The sash on these windows slides next to each other. The design incorporates a dual monorail system and weather stripping to insure proper weather performance. Even our largest gliding windows will slide easily for many years.
The benefit of a gliding window is that you have the flexibility to open both sashes at the same time, allowing for air ventilation. Because the Fibrex composite material that we use in our framing system is so strong, we can build large slider windows.
