Vantage APL Architectural Series Sliding Windows
New APL 2019 Specifier Guide now available Order now
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.
