Description of Double Slider Windows
Double slider windows are a style of window that have two operable panels or “sashes.” Each sash glides to the right or left horizontally in grooves or tracks. You can open just one sash or both at the same time for maximum ventilation. Both sashes have locking mechanisms so they cannot be opened from the outside. Each window panel will also have a screen on the exterior side to keep out dirt, bugs, and debris when the window is open.
You may also see double slider windows called “horizontal sliding windows” or “replacement slider windows.” While these terms are technically correct, if you are looking for a double slider window, as opposed to a single slider window, which only has one operable sash, make sure that you indicate this to your window salesperson.
Double slider windows are considered an upgrade in San Diego homes. If you currently have single sliders in your home, you may want to consider going with double sliders when you replace your home’s windows—especially if you like an abundance of fresh air in your home.
Double sliders are commonly used in bedrooms and family living areas. They are also great in rooms with low ceilings, since they are horizontally oriented. A double slider is a good choice when a horizontal slider is desired but where more ventilation is required than a single slider can provide. When having their original windows replaced, some San Diego homeowners choose to replace picture windows with double sliders in order to gain the ability to ventilate a room with fresh air. You do sacrifice a bit of viewing area by doing this, however, since there is a frame around each sash that will interrupt your view. Single slider windows are also an option for rooms that require an egress window for safety purposes.

Operation of Double Slider Windows
Double slider windows are very common, so most people already know how they operate. Either side of the window is simply slid toward the opposite side. Both sides slide, allowing for one or both panels to be open.
If you currently have slider windows in your home that are difficult or impossible to open, rest assured that the single slider windows we sell at BM Windows are known for their ease of operation. With just an occasional cleaning of your window tracks, your double slider windows should open and close freely for a lifetime!

Benefits of Double Slider Windows
Double slider windows have many benefits for San Diego homes. They:
- Allow air to circulate from both sides of the window
- Fit easily on walls with limited vertical space—in rooms with low ceilings
- Open and close easily
- Are available in custom sizes for a perfect fit
- Can be used as an egress window
Considerations for Double Slider Windows
Each window type has its benefits and things to consider. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re thinking about adding a double slider window in your San Diego home:
- Double sliders are a great option for walls with limited vertical space (low ceilings), but they do require more horizontal space.
- Double sliders are typically more expensive than single sliders and are only offered by select manufacturers.
- Slider windows are best for rooms on the ground floor of a two-story home. For second-story rooms, you may want to consider a single hung or double hung window with a tilt-in sash, which will allow you to clean the window's exterior glass from the inside.
- Vinyl replacement windows generally require very little maintenance. However, with slider windows, once a year or so, you should wipe down the window's tracks to eliminate any dirt or debris. This will keep your window's sashes sliding freely.
