Horizontal sliding window

Made to measure and functional

Enough daylight and fresh air are essential for a healthy indoor climate. If you want to use every centimetre in front of the window – our horizontal sliding windows are a perfect alternative to the classic tilt and turn windows. The window casements are pushed to one side. Baier manufactures the horizontal sliding windows in various designs for different applications – from uninsulated to thermally insulated, electrically or manually operated.

Baier horizontal sliding windows made of aluminium – quality tailored to your needs

Horizontal sliding windows are always custom-made. They can be manufactured with one, two or more casements, telescopic or symmetrical. Optionally, the horizontal sliding windows are supplemented at the sides or above and below the movable opening casement with fanlights, sills or side panels made of standard profile systems.

A high-quality sliding fitting ensures smooth running. Depending on the construction situation, the design can be top-hanging/bottom-guided or bottom-standing/top-guided. Particularly interesting: in the case of a top-hanging window sash, this can be designed with point guidance at the bottom, virtually without a threshold.


Details, function and ease of operation

Operation is electric, with a convenient motor drive, or manual, with stoppers in the end positions. The electric drive is a 24V DC motor; the power transmission is by a toothed belt. With modern control technology, which uses the principle of power cut-off, no limit switches are necessary. The control unit is supplied in a separate control box; the customer usually provides the push-button.

By using different connection variants and setting options, the control can be carried out in dead man’s mode, semi-automatic or fully automatic, also in partial opening. Optionally with soft stop. The electronics are manufactured in accordance with the general EU directives and carry the CE mark. There is a wide range of connection options for additional or on-site controls. As a rule, the horizontal sliding windows can be operated without additional safety sensors, thanks to the power cut-off.
