Sliding Windows

Sliding Windows (also referred to as 'sliders' or 'gliders') are typically made with one sash that slides horizontally and one sash that remains fixed.  Typically the sashes can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.  Like picture windows, sliding windows can also be good for showcasing spectacular views since there is little obstruction in their design.  Sliding Windows can often be a good option to replace fixed picture windows since they allow for more ventilation.
