Description

Sliding windows use the sliding door frame and panels move on an outside track. They can meet at 90° corners without the need for a corner post.

Most configurations include a fixed side panel. However, a bypass slider option is available where two or more panels are configured to open from opposing ends.

  • Interlocker stiles and mullions are flush in the closed position
