Slider window configurations

Horizontal slider windows are one of the more economical styles of operational windows available. They are ideal for basements, bathrooms, and kitchens and are available in four slider configurations to suit your needs.

A single slider window is a practical and space-efficient solution, consisting of one fixed window and a single sliding window. The sliding window easily lifts out for convenient cleaning and screen removal, making it an excellent choice for spaces like basements. This configuration not only maximizes natural light but also ensures ease of maintenance, providing a perfect balance between functionality and simplicity.
