Horizontal Slider windows open with the sash sliding left or right. Some people find sliding windows easier and faster to open than crank-style windows. Since they open and close without protruding, horizontal sliders are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios. Horizontal sliders are favourites for contemporary style homes, panoramic view and are also popular for satisfying bedroom egress requirements. In a single slider, one sash slides to open.

Window glazing improves insulation and energy efficiency. This will result in lower energy bills over time.
