Horizontal Slider (single-, double-vent)

Horizontal SliderHorizontal sliders are available in single-vent or double-vent styles where the vent sash slides along the sill of the window. Horizontal sliders work easily in a wide variety of architectural styles including: Prairie, Tudor, French, Ranch and Contemporary. And because they open and close horizontally they are often used for ventilation and egress purposes.

Double-vent windows are similar to single-vent windows but have two sash that operate on either side of a fixed window. A double-vent window is typically divided up in 1/4 - 1/2 - 1/4 or in equal thirds (1/3 - 1/3 - 1/3).

Our horizontal slider windows offer the added security of the exclusive AMSCO® SentryLock or our cam and positive action locks, all built to exceed every industry standard for forced entry. And our superior-quality adjustable* tandem nylon rollers allow for effortless operation and help line up reveals.
  • Artisan Series features the new SentryLock, an automatic, magnetic-action lock.
  • Studio Series features a cam lock or a positive action lock.
  • Serenity Series features a positive action lock.
Single-vent and double-vent windows are available in the Studio Series, Artisan™ Series, Serenity™ Series and Renaissance® Series .

* Adjustable rollers available in the Studio Series and Artisan™ Series only.
