Description

Metro Series sliding windows use the sliding door frame but have smaller sliding panel rails, inter-locker stiles and mullions. Stiffening boxes on inter-locker stiles and mullions are flush in the closed position.

Wide formats are possible with a maximum of six panels — two stacking towards one jamb and two stacking the other way.
