Lowes Glider Windows
Glider windows are also known as “slider” windows, and are named for their motion when opened. Like casement windows, glider windows are rectangular in shape. However, instead of cranking them out to open them, you slide the window pane sideways to overlap the other. Some glider windows only have one pane that slides, while others have two panes that can overlap each other (similar to double-hung windows).
Glider windows are set on a grooved track and slide along this track when they’re opened or closed. Many other windows have springs or pulleys, which don’t last as long and eventually may need replacing. As a homeowner, you won’t have to worry as much about a grooved track.
Most glider windows also incorporate glazing, which creates a watertight, airtight seal between the sash and the frame. This glazing makes the windows energy efficient and helps prevent shrinking or cracking.
Easy to Use
Because glider windows simply glide open, they’re very easy to use, no matter what your strength or age. Glider window locks are simple latches, which means if you want to open the window, all you have to do is unlatch the fastening and slide it. This also makes them easy to clean – especially if both window panes can slide past one another.
Glider windows are simple in design, which means they’re affordable to build. These windows are not only some of the most economical, but they’re also the most cost effective. In addition, their durability means you’ll not only pay a respectable price, you also won’t have to worry about replacing them so soon.
