Description of Single Slider Windows
Single slider windows have one stationary panel (or sash) and one panel that glides to the right or left horizontally in grooves or tracks. This allows one side of the window to open up to allow in fresh air. A screen is installed on the exterior side of the operable sash to help keep out dirt, bugs, and debris when the window is open. There is a locking mechanism in place so the windows cannot be slid open from the outside.
Single slider windows can also be referred to as “horizontal sliding windows” or simply “slider windows.” These terms are basically interchangeable. However, it should be noted that there is also a type of replacement window known as a “double slider window,” which has two operable sashes that have the ability to open and close. These types of windows look and operate very similarly to each other, with the only real difference being that a single slider window has one operable sash, and a double slider window has two.
Single slider windows are very common in homes throughout San Diego and are a great replacement window option for San Diego homes that were originally built using them, or for homeowners looking to replace a picture window with a window that offers ventilation.
Single sliders are commonly used in bedrooms, family living areas, and kitchens, since they allow in a good amount of natural light and can also be opened up to allow in fresh air. egress window.

Operation of Single Slider Windows
Single slider windows are very common, so most people are already familiar with them and know how they operate. One side of the window is simply slid toward the opposite side. The section that moves is called the operable or mobile sash, which slides horizontally over the stationary sash.
If you currently have a single slider window that is difficult to slide open and closed, 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 slider windows should slide freely for a lifetime!

Benefits of Single Slider Windows

Considerations for Single Slider Windows
Each window type has its benefits and things to consider. Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering single slider windows for your San Diego home:
- Single slider windows are a great option for walls with limited vertical space, such as in homes with low ceilings, but they do require more horizontal space.
- Slider windows are best for rooms on the ground floor of a home. For second-story rooms, you may want to consider a single hung or double hung window with a tilt-in sash, which allows you to clean the exterior glass from the inside of your home.
- Vinyl replacement windows, in general, require very little maintenance. However, with slider windows, you will need to occasionally wipe down the window's track to make sure the operable sash continues to slide freely.
