End Vent Slider Windows For Classic Homes

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.


  • Good for larger windows, because they offer a more efficient way to close a window that takes up a large amount of physical space;
  • Good for matching other window designs elements of the home;
  • The frame size allows a lot of light to enter a room, due to its horizontal construction that provides a more expansive view than windows with a vertical design;

  • The design look of an end vent slider window completes the overall aesthetic and “ties in” the style of your home. These window styles have a classic and timeless look that fits well in any home no matter how old or modern it may be;
  • With an end vent slider window, typically 75% of the exposed window surface is glass, which makes the glass such an essential part of a window’s performance. This allows for a maximum amount of natural sunlight to enter the room and brighten up the space without the need for additional lighting fixtures;

There are a variety of options you are able to choose from. They are the following:

  • Double pane or triple pane window selection;
  • Tinted windows in grey or bronze;

  • It’s a window that’s both aesthetically pleasing as well as practical in terms of energy efficiency.

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.

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.

If you’re still undecided as to making that final decision, here are a few reasons of additional encouragement:

  • No limit on style: They come in all sizes, shapes, and designs. This means that it will be easier to choose a design that fits right in perfectly with the style of your home. This is precisely why a window that took off in the 1950s and 1960s is still a popular choice among homeowners today.
  • Fewer moving parts: You may not realize this, but other traditional sashes and other window designs include more moving parts. Fewer moving parts is an asset to you in two ways. 1) With fewer parts to break down, window maintenance will require less time, effort, and money. 2) With ease of operation and simple design, the window can glide to any position you desire. The slide tilt feature makes it easy to operate. As such, this window can ultimately save you both time and money in the long run. This is because, with less concern in regards to fixing broken components, you are less likely to encounter many repair costs. Moreover, if you do unfortunately run into an issue requiring a repair, you can rest assured the problem will be dealt with swiftly.
  • Highly energy efficient: End vent slider windows are constructed to seal very tightly when you have the sashes in the closed position. Therefore, there will be less air seepage around each sash and along the area where the frame and the sashes meet. Ensuing this tight fit, you will find it takes energy to heat and cool your home. The month to month savings on energy costs alone will make you feel glad and relieved that this was the window style you chose. As such, along with the money you are likely to save on repair costs, you can also expect to save on energy costs as well.
  • Panoramic vista: Offering two larger glass sashes that move along a track, it’s much easier to enjoy the view. If you love gazing out your window, when you choose end vent slider windows, there is only the single break that is found at the point where the two sashes overlap on the track. This allows for extremely enjoyable viewing experience, as you are able to see everything that is going on around you with a largely unobstructed view. In addition, this is also a great option for any pet owners out there, because it offers a space for them to freely pass the time looking outside and greet everyone that is walking past.
  • Increased market value: And last but not least, with the installation of end vent slider windows, ultimately your property’s real estate value will increase. The windows are not only stylish in design, but they are easy to operate and tend to have great longevity lasting for years to come. Prospective buyers will most definitely find those attributes particularly appealing. Therefore, if you are thinking about moving, these windows can be a useful way to increase the value of your home. Due to this, even if you are unsure how long you are going to live in your current home, choosing to buy these windows are still well worth the cost given that they will more than likely be a feature of the home that will offer a better return on investment once the house is in the process of being sold.

Clear Glass

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-E Glass

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 Windows

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.
