Why sliding windows?
Sliding windows can be a convenient alternative to classic tilt and turn windows. Especially if the space in the window area is to be used as a work surface.
The sash of a sliding window is either pushed upwards or to the side. Space consumption is minimised as the window sash does not “swing” inwards as with a classic tilt and turn window. Sliding windows are divided into vertical sliding windows and horizontal sliding windows. The decisive factor is the direction in which the sliding window is to be opened or closed, either upwards and downwards or to the side.
- Vertical sliding windows, also known as vertical sliding windows, open and close vertically, the window sash is pushed up and down
- Horizontal sliding windows, also known as horizontal sliding windows, open horizontally, the window sash is pushed to the side
Both sliding windows are available in different versions, thermally insulated for outdoor use, uninsulated for indoor use, manually or electrically operated, single or multi-leaf, with or without fixed glazing.
Vertical sliding windows and horizontal sliding windows are ideal as pass-throughs, for example in street sales as take-away windows or as a connection between two rooms indoors. In out-of-home outlets such as ice cream parlours, butchers, beer gardens and ticket counters, the sliding window acts as a sales window and is usually designed without thresholds.
