Sliding Windows
HORIZONTAL SLIDING MITERED WINDOW sliding windows 3000 series

Siding windows are commonly used in both the commercial and recreational industry. They are ideal for tour vessels and inland ferries in salon, bulkhead, and wheelhouse applications. These windows provide maximum ventilation when open, and become weathertight when closed. Heavy duty self locking, lock systems provide for a strong secure close in the locked position. Specially located flip locks mounted on the inside sill secures the sliders in the open position. These windows are also available with optional screens and interior finish rings. Also see screens and trim rings in our fabrication guide for additional information

Our two track Vertical sliding windows have the same characteristics and options as our Horizontal sliding windows. They are commonly found in doors or in wheel-house applications.

Detailthree track (3300)

For applications requiring a third track to contain an independently sliding screen or a third glass lite, we also offer a three track extrusion (3300). These windows are commonly used on large motor yachts for large cabin or salon side windows. They can only be used in applications where the bulkhead is greater than 2 inches in thickness and is also available with optional screens and interior finish rings.

Glazing for 3000 series

The 3000 series windows are designed for glazing up to ¼" thick. The standard type of glass used for this application is "tempered glass" As an additional safety option, this glass is available in "tempered laminated glass" which offers the strength of tempered glass combined with the safety laminated feature. Another option is Acrylite (a high grade acrylic). Regular Laminated safety glass is not available in sliding windows. With these options there are many available tints other than clear which include, Green (solex), Bronze, Gray, or dark Gray. For additional information regarding these options, please refer to Glass tints and option chart.

Sliding windows also require additional components which are a part of the glazing system.. These components include our V-473 track glide, F-485 Wool pile, H-714 Knob/glass pull, A-400 Lock system, H-722 Grommet, and the V-480 Foam tape. For additional information regarding these components, please refer to Accessory page.

Additional Options

SCREENS (Optional in 2 Track style)

A screen may be mounted together with a fixed glass in the outside track of the 2 track window. The screen may be removed for cleaning or screen fabric replacement.


For recess mounting windows in a thick bulkhead, the frames may be provided without the 1" mounting flange. Screws are then driven laterally or T-bolts are inserted through the frame and bulkhead from inside the track channels.

Installation :

Windows:  All insert type flush mounted windows are designed to be installed on flat surfaces only. The mounting holes are drilled and counter-sunk into the flange prior to finishing process. The holes are commonly sized for #8 screws and are spaced anywhere from 4"-8" apart. Unlike bolt or clamp-on windows, trim ring mounting holes are drilled off-point from the holes in the window frames, allowing the finishing screws to be driven from both side of the cabin wall. These holes are also commonly sized for #8 screws. If the requested application calls for through-bolt type windows, the holes are drilled on-point ( in-line) with the holes of the window frame.

Curved or arced windows:  In some applications, windows are designed to conform with the contour or arc in a bulk-head. These contours vary from slight to moderate which may require stretch-forming the extrusion to conform with the corresponding contour. Depending on the type of window and contour, custom tooling and dies may be required.
