How Single Slider Windows Work
There are many available window styles and configurations available. These include Casement, Hung, Bow, Bay and Shape windows, such as an arch. Most window styles are differentiated by the opening action:
- Casements swing open in a door like motion
- Hung windows pivot from the downward instead of up
- Bow and bay style windows essentially extend outward from the house and may open with a casement or hung style
Single Slider windows, as the name implies, are opened by unlatching and sliding one of the panes horizontally in a track. There are also Double Slider windows, in which either side can be moved.
Single slider windows are a modern style and often have a longer, more horizontal profile. They can also be tall or square, but that shape might not make the best use of the horizontal sliding movement. The biggest contrast these window have with other styles is the thin profile, due to not opening outward at an angle like other windows. They commonly have an extensive area of uninterrupted glass, but are also available in different pane layouts if you prefer that style. Single slider windows are also available in all the most advanced energy-efficient glass and frame materials.
Benefits of Single Slider Windows
- Low profile and unobtrusive
- Simple and durable
- Wide range of sizes and large openings
Single slider windows have a sleek, efficient design. Some people might see them as being a no-frills style, but this simplicity also makes them affordable. Another big benefit is their low opening profile. The movable pane slides within the frame with no protrusion into either the house, or the area outside. Windows can’t get any sleeker or more convenient than this; They are almost as simple as fixed windows while being able to naturally ventilate rooms if desired. The single slider design is also robust and durable. By not having the windows extend away from the wall, there is no risk of damage from anything bumping into them, children hanging off them, or from high winds when the windows are open. There are also no crank mechanisms or hinges to break or require maintenance. Only a simple latch and track needed for window operation.
