What is a sliding window?
Also known as pocket sliders and gliding windows, sliding windows take their name from their function. Using brass rollers for easy operation, one of the sashes slides past the other within the pocket to provide ventilation. Used in a wide variety of homes, slider windows offer both form and function by combining beautiful views with quick and easy operation. At The Window Source in Topeka, sliding windows are installed frequently for homeowners and businesses across Kansas City, Manhattan and surrounding communities.
Both ranch-style and modern homes often use this type of window, so rest assured that our slider windows will match anyone’s style. Sashes are easily removed from the pocket for frequent cleaning, yet when the sashes are locked, they are secure, stable, and safe. Learn more from our Topeka sliding window experts about the two types of slider windows below and make the best decision for your next replacement or remodel.
Our Different Types of Topeka Sliding Windows
Sporting two sashes of equal size, a two-lite slider allows for ventilation from either side as both sashes can be opened easily. Also known as a two-section slider, this window is a simple yet elegant option that our Topeka sliding window installation team knows well.
Known also as a three-section slider, this window features a center sash fixed in place straddled by two operative sashes on either side. With multiple configurations, we have a style for all homes. All three sashes can be equal sizes with a 1/3 – 1/3 – 1/3 configuration, or your sliding window can have a fixed center sash that is twice the width of the other two sashes in a ¼ – ½ – ¼ configuration.
