VWD Horizontal Sliding windows are a practical addition to your home. They not only offer an unobstructive view but are a perfect fit for larger openings for any modern or classic home.
VWD Horizontal Sliding windows easily glide from left to right, providing a wide window view with full ventilation. Depending on the area of coverage, choose from a two-lite or three-lite slider that features a large picture window with operable end vents.

Standard half screen
Multi-chambered, fusion-welded frame and sash
Excellent for thermal resistance and prevention of heat loss. VWD Windows are extruded in 3 ¼” frame depths for extra rigidity, strength and thermal properties and are used in Replacement and New Construction Applications
Metal Reinforced – Built to last.
The window’s structure is reinforced at the operator, keeper and along the sash stile
Built-in Water Management Systems
Carefully engineered independent water management system allows for quick drainage to the exterior.
Integral Brick Mould with Nail Fin
Ideal for brick and siding applications, offering cleaner details and improved performance (301BMJ only).
Offered as an option, polyurethane foam insulation is injected into the frame and sash of each window.
Double Glazed System (7/8” Overall)
Features a flexible dual durometer seal that hugs the sash glass from both sides, this system also includes a glazing tape applied to the interior side resulting in an unprecedented barrier against air and water penetration.
Triple Glazed (1 3/8” Overall)
Features two ½” airspaces that will dramatically improve the performance of your windows by reducing heat loss and conserving energy, for an even better performance upgrade to Double Low E & Argon.
Filled units reduce your window’s conduction and convention of heat. Argon works well with Low E glass to maximize your new window’s energy efficiency and performance.
Commercial Glazing Technique
Exterior glass stops, combined with the Double Bond Glazing, are more effective in maintaining a well-sealed window.
It is a flexible, U-shaped, silicone foam tape product used to wrap around and cushion our center decorative panel. Featuring a vapor barrier backing, the product used in combination with Hot Melt butyl, provides a superior Warm – Edge seal.
Stainless Steel Spacer
This is a warm edge spacer. This spacer will reduce condensation, heat loss, and provide clean, graceful lines and aesthetically provide an appealing appearance. Because it is made from low conductive steel, it provides natural structural strength in your window. Additionally, because it is steel, it is the perfect barrier preventing moisture penetration or gas leakage.
