Sliding windows are one of those window replacement styles that have stood the test of time. One would think it can’t be improved, but Renewal by Andersen® begs to differ. In the following video, Plant Manager Rick Wynveen and In-Home Consultant Kelly Klein talk about the features and benefits of our gliding windows.
A common problem among traditional sliding windows is their tendency to get stuck, usually because of inefficient roller systems. Sometimes it gets to the point where one would simply leave the window closed. Renewal by Andersen addressed this issue by using a dual monorail system that allows smooth, one-handed operation. This has made our sliding windows so effortless to operate that we’ve taken to calling them “gliding windows”.
Another common cause of inoperable sliding windows is the effects of moisture and shifting temperatures on the frames and sashes. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen gliding windows do not have this problem, thanks to our Fibrex® material frames, a composite of wood fibers and polymer that combines the strength and stability of wood with the low maintenance benefits of vinyl. This combination results in greater structural rigidity that helps reduce the risks of warping, fading, and cracking over time.
Features And Benefits
Renewal by Andersen gliding windows are perfect for areas where windows that swing open would otherwise be an obstruction, such as on walls situated along busy areas like footpaths. Since the track supports the full weight of the sashes, you can choose much bigger windows and still expect smooth operation, without the sashes dragging or getting stuck.
All Renewal by Andersen replacement windows feature our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options. Unlike single panel windows, its dual panel design helps reduce thermal transfer, resulting in minimal heat loss during winter, and equally minimal heat gain during summer, which in turn helps minimize your monthly energy consumption. Coupled with our precision installation process and industry-leading warranty coverage, you can expect years of smooth operation and peace of mind from your Renewal by Andersen gliding windows.
