In this post, you will learn ...

  • What a sliding window is and where it fits best in your home
  • Advantages of sliding glass windows
  • Why Stanek brand sliding windows are the best option for your home

From their easy-to-use design to their energy efficiency and maximum ventilation, sliding windows are a beautiful and valuable addition to your home. Stanek® vinyl sliding windows feature slim vertical lines for a clean, elegant look and are available in four different sliding combinations.

What is a Sliding Window?

Sliding windows, or gliding windows, have sashes that glide left or right in either direction in a single frame, which allows for easy use. At Stanek, we offer two types of gliding windows: two-lite and three-lite sliding windows. The two-lite sliding window has two independent sashes that slide left to right, which allows for maximum ventilation and makes cleaning a breeze. The three-lite sliding window configuration, typically a picture window, has two independent sashes on either side of a fixed center sash.

Sliding Windows Configurations and Sizing Options

Sliding glass windows are often found in rooms where an unobstructed view of the outdoors is desired or where maximum ventilation is needed. Since they are easy to open from left and right, sliding windows are commonly found in spaces that are difficult to reach, such as above the kitchen sink or behind a soaking tub. They are also ideal for openings in which the width is greater than the height.
