The Window Source Learning Basic Window Types: Sliding / Pocket Windows New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine
What are Sliding or Pocket Windows?
Sliding windows (also known as ‘pocket windows’) are horizontal windows with sashes that slide back and forth on a track. Sliding windows are similar to a double hung window turned on its side. There are two-lite sliders and three-lite sliders. Both types of sliders have two operational sashes. The difference between the two is that a three-lite slider will have a fixed center window.
Sliding windows are perfect for walls that have plenty of horizontal space, but not a lot of vertical room. Sliding and pocket windows offer a more contemporary look than traditional double hung windows.
