Single Slider Windows
What Are Single Slider Windows?
Slider windows are a type of horizontally set window, where the active sash will slide left or right (depending on the configuration – XO, or OX) in order to open the window.
Single slider windows, as you might expect, feature a single slidable sash, whereas the other ‘inactive’ sash will be fixed in position. These windows feature two panes of glass divided by the central, vertically situated sash, called the meeting rail. The meeting rail is where the locks are located and keep the active sash from being opened from the exterior when the locks are engaged. The meeting rail can also be reinforced with steel for added structural integrity and security.
Single slider windows are available in a wide range of material types, such as:
• High-Quality Vinyl
• Thermally Broken Aluminum
• Vinyl-Clad Wood
• Aluminum-Clad Wood
This material diversity, coupled with the availability of double-pane or triple-pane slider window types, make for a handsome and energy-efficient window that is suitable in a wide range of locations throughout a home.
These windows are best suited for use in window openings that are wider than they are tall, and they make a great window option for homeowners seeking a greater level of visibility of the outdoors. This makes them popular for installation near exterior garden areas, in kitchens and dining rooms, and to add natural light in bedrooms.
The Benefits of Single Slider Windows
Single slider windows offer a wide range of advantages that make them an attractive choice for window installation and replacement. The largest benefits include:
• Superior visibility – Single slider windows offer an unobstructed view unmatched by most window types aside from fixed and picture windows. This viewing area can be enhanced by choosing a contemporary-style sliding window with a slimmer frame.
• Good ventilation – Single sliders are more dependable, energy efficient, secure, have fewer service issues, and get just as much ventilation as a double slider (because it is not possible to open more than one side of a double slider at one time).
• Great source of natural light – Without an excess of sashes or muntins in the way, slider windows are great for letting light into the home.
• Low-maintenance windows – Because slider windows have fewer moving parts and mechanisms than many other window types, they need very little maintenance and rarely need to be repaired. Single-hung windows have a balance system in place to hold the active sash in place when it is opened; however, single slider windows roll across the bottom track, ridding the necessity for a complicated balance system. Fewer moving parts ensures a better, cleaner, and simplified design meant to last through the years.
• Excellent material and design diversity – With many sizes, frame material types, colors (depending on the frame material chosen), and design options, there is a slider window ideal for any homeowner’s preferences.
