As a homeowner who is considering a home makeover with a window replacement, chances are you might have thought of using an end vent slider window. An end vent slider window is ideal for a room that has a large picture window wall with an existing window greater in size than 72 inches wide. These picture windows were a common design feature of Canadian homes built throughout the 1950s and 1960s. However, just because they may have been popularized quite some time ago, this does not mean they are not still a fantastic option to fit your new modern-day home.
An end vent slider window is a contemporary, modern design featuring a fixed glass panel in the centre, and end-vent sashes on either side laterally left and right which has the ability to tilt inwards.
With a stylish design, end vent slider windows combine wide, expansive views with a simple horizontal sliding function. They make for a great alternative to double slider windows, which tend to be better suited to smaller openings. End vent slider windows are popular with builders who seek the design look of a casement window but at a much more cost-effective price. End vent slider windows offers a convenient and easy way to clean and to let in a welcoming breeze of circulating fresh air.
End vent slider windows have sashes that glide left or right in either direction in a single frame, which enables it to be easy to use. Typically, there are two types of gliding windows: two-lite and three-lite sliding windows. The two-lite configuration sliding window has two independent sashes that slide left to right. This allows for maximum ventilation and makes cleaning a breeze. The three-lite sliding window configuration, which is typically a picture window in design, has two independent sashes on either side laterally of a main fixed centre sash.
End vent slider windows can often be found in rooms where an unobstructed view of the outside is desired or where maximum ventilation is required. Ideal for openings in which the width is greater than the height, these windows are easy to open from left and right, and are commonly found in spaces that are difficult to reach, such as behind a soaking tub or above a kitchen sink.
End vent slider windows feature dual brass rollers and fully integrated rails that ensure for a smooth operation. Structural integrity is added to the windows with a composite reinforcement material. These windows also come in energy-efficient options.
There are a variety of options you are able to choose from. They are the following:
This style of window provides both a great panoramic vista view as well as increased ventilation. You can open one end at a time or both ends at the same time if you wish in order to achieve an even greater amount of ventilation that many other window designs are unable to offer. This window style is also easy to clean and maintain due to the two operational sashes which tilt inside your home. The end vent slider window’s updated modern design enhances the beauty of your home, thus creating a focal point in rooms throughout the home. Such as dining areas and family recreation rooms. If a bay or bow window is not suitable for your home upgrade renovation project because of a lack of space on the exterior of your property, then these end vent slider windows are a great option as they can be customized depending on your individual style preference.
An end vent slider window comes constructed with a fully welded frame and sash. There are also child-proof safety features such as child-proof handles with a multi-point locking system. Child safety latches can be used to limit how far the window opens. This is crucial for any families with younger children, as these safety features will provide you with peace of mind knowing that your child will not be able to accidentally open or go through the window. As such, you do not have to worry about letting your child near these windows, even if you are not there to monitor them.

If you are looking for the ideal home renovation, remodel/upgrade project to increase beauty, functionality, and long-term property value, look no further and choose a stylish end vent slider window.
Naturally, with all windows, energy efficiency is absolutely crucial. As a homeowner, there are multiple energy-efficient glass options that you can choose from. Windows can also be matched to your colour and style of your home and other design options, which ultimately gives your home that personal touch.
End vent slider windows are constructed from a wide assortment of durable long-lasting materials, including wood, aluminum and vinyl. Highly energy-efficient glass panes are part of the construction component. This facilitates the containment of warm or cool air and helps to control your home energy bills at the same time.

Our double-paned windows with clear glass provide optimum noise protection compared to single pane glass. In terms of temperature resistance, it promotes the easy flow of hot and cold air from both inside and outside.
Low emissivity glass, or Low-E glass, is a strategic choice for lowering your home energy costs all-year-round. In winter, Low-E glass cuts down on heat loss by reducing radiant heat transfer and reflecting interior heat back into your room, where it needs to be. It also efficiently dispenses the sun’s rays—allowing more of them to enter the home as usable solar energy. This provides extra warmth while minimizing reliance on heating, which can account for up to 60% of a home’s energy costs.
In summer the same principle applies but the effect is reversed. Low-E glass windows help reduce the flow of hot air into the cool interior. This specially formulated coating also reduces the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are a leading cause of premature fading and degradation of fabrics and carpeting.
Triple-pane glass windows are the most energy-efficient models on the market. With the extra pane of glass, they moderate temperatures inside for optimal comfort in every season—during winter, cold air remains outside and warm air inside, while in summer the results are reversed.
Special coatings are often applied to the glass to eliminate solar heat gain and boost its energy efficiency. The extra pane of glass truly provides a new level of insulation, airflow and energy efficiency.Request a Quote
