Video Blog Renewal by Andersen® Sliding Windows

Sometimes, all we need is an unobtrusive and easy to operate window style. In this regard, consider Renewal by Andersen® sliding windows. In the following video, Renewal by Andersen Plant Manager Rick Wynveen and In-Home Consultant Kelly Klein talks about the features and benefits of our sliding windows.


Build and Design

A common problem with traditional sliding windows is its tendency to get stuck in its tracks because of temperature changes, wood shrinkage, and inefficient rollers. Renewal by Andersen addressed this problem early on by using a dual monorail system that allows smooth, unimpeded motion; it’s so smooth that more than a few homeowners have taken to calling them “gliding” windows.

Wood shrinkage and other problems related to traditional wood frames are things of the past with our exclusive Fibrex® material frames. Fibrex material is a composite made of wood fibers and polymer, combining the strength and insulation of wood with the low-maintenance benefits of vinyl. This combination lets us build sliding windows with much slimmer frames, allowing for increased glass-to-frame ratios and bigger window sizes without compromising performance.

Features and Benefits

The Fibrex material frames are complemented by our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options. The dual-pane design prevents thermal transfer, making it energy-efficient. The low-emissivity coating reflects up to 95% of harmful UV and infrared rays. This means you can have sliding windows with large glass areas without worrying about your indoors heating up or your fabrics and furniture fading under the sun. The increased glass areas let you enjoy spectacular views without obstruction.

Sliding windows can be installed in spaces where typical window styles like casement windows could become an obstruction, such as on walls adjacent to footpaths. The tracks help support the sashes’ weight, which lets you choose bigger replacement windows. It’s also one of the few window styles that can be operated with one hand, perfect if your other hand is occupied or incapacitated. Renewal by Andersen sliding windows also provide ample ventilation even if the room can only accommodate a single window.
