What is a Sliding Window?

Sliding Windows are a functional window that has a panel sliding over a fixed glass area, over the face of a wall, or into a wall cavity.

When to use a Sliding Window

Sliding Windows are a popular choice of window type for many reasons:

  • They are perfect for increased ventilation as their wide openings ensure maximum airflow.
  • Tip– Install them on the south side of the house to catch cooling breezes in the summer. If you have windows situated directly across from each other or even up to 90 degree angle, then use them for cross ventilation.
  • You can choose a variety of glazing options from standard single glazing  to double glazing, with or without Low E coating to maximise energy efficiency.
  • Sliding Windows are an economical window to purchase for your home.
  • Sliding Windows are one of the easiest types of windows to open and close.

Retractable flyscreens are available custom made to suit our timber Sliding Windows.

We can also provide timber-framed fly screens to use with your Sliding Windows.
