Sliding windows are comprised of a horizontal window that slides from side to side. They look like a single hung impact windows, that has been tipped on its side. It can easily be opened by just sliding the right panel to the left or the left panel to the right. These windows are very common and can be found in all types of residential and commercial buildings. Since they tend to be more wide than tall, they work well in rooms with limited wall space or vertical height. See Hurricane Windows
What is the Main benefits of Sliding Impact Windows?
One of the main benefits of sliding windows are the ease in which they can be used. These windows exist on rollers, therefore, they easily slide open and shut. This is a major benefit in comparison to more traditional hung windows that need to be lifted up and then pushed back down. We’ve all struggled getting a traditional window open and then shut again a few hours later. In addition, sliding windows have a more modern look and feel than single hung windows. They are the preferred choice for new residential and commercial businesses due to their contemporary design and convenient sizing.
Sliding windows are also designed to keep air and the elements out. Their frames and glass provide a stable barrier so rain, snow and cold air stays out, without leaking in at all. Sliding windows have been around for many years and their designs have improved to provide the utmost protection against moisture. On the other hand, these windows can keep warm air out in those hotter months when air conditioning is on and is cooling the room.
Depending on the type of framing and glass, sliding windows can help save energy. By forming a layer between the inside and outside worlds, sliding windows can help reduce heating and cooling costs throughout the year. These windows are also easy to clean! This may not seem very important but it is crucial. Many windows are difficult to clean resulting in a buildup of dirt. This can cause a lot of trouble for the window function long-term. Owners of sliding windows should clean their windows often to have clean, dirt-free windows.
