Residential Double Hung Sliding Windows
APL Specifier Guide available Order now
Description

FIRST offers a double hung window with two surrounding frame options; one with a scrolled Edwardian appearance and the other with a clean, flat face for a more contemporary look.

These windows have non-projecting sashes, a good choice to keep walkways clear. An easy-clean feature for window exteriors allows the panels to pivot inwards when two corner catches are pressed, especially handy for high level windows.
