Combine an expansive view with slim, contemporary styling. Our gliding windows have easy-to-open sash and are operational from both sides.
The modern elegance of a gliding window is an ideal solution, particularly when a projecting window might interfere with walkways, patios, decks, or landscaping. Designed with slim, contoured lines, you can choose optional grilles in styles to complement, update, or change your home’s decor.
From a functional standpoint, the sash opens easily, both sides of the window are operational, and they lift out of the track for quick cleaning. A stationary sash is also available. The Fibrex® material tracks won’t pit, rust, or corrode and it wipes clean with a damp cloth making cleaning a snap.
Maximize your view with slim, easy to slide, contemporary gliding windows.
- Smooth, narrow, contoured framing lines are visually pleasing and give you more glass viewing area and less frame.
- Both sash slide, so you can open either the left side, the right side, or a portion of both.
- Fibrex material tracks are shaped for easier cleaning and will not pit, rust or corrode.
- A great solution when a projecting window may interfere with walkways, patios, decks, or landscaping.

High-Performance™ Low-E4™ Glass
Renewal by Andersen® introduces High-Performance™ Low-E4T™ Glass, the next generation of energy-efficient, low-maintenance glass, and further advances Andersen’s proven glass technology.
Adds Thermal Protection
Andersen Low-E4 glass employs a hermetically-sealed system for optimum insulation from heat, cold and sound. A patented low-conductivity spacer separates the two panes of glass. The space between the two panes is filled with an argon gas blend to minimize the thermal transfer. Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass, High-Performance Low-E4 glass is 41% more energy-efficient in summer and 35% more efficient in winter.
Helps Keep UV Rays Outside
High-Performance Low-E4 glass works like a sun block to filter ultraviolet (UV) rays that can fade fabric and damage furniture. Ordinary dual-pane glass lets 63% of UV light pass through. High-Performance Low-E4 glass is layered with 11 microscopic coatings that cut UV transmission down to 17% with virtually no effect on the clarity or color of the light that enters your home.
Reduces Sound Penetration
In addition, High-Performance Low-E4 glass also reduces sound penetration significantly, even when compared to single-pane glass.
Low-E4 glass is exclusive to select Andersen® windows and doors, and is included as a standard feature on all Renewal by Andersen® window products.
Renewal by Anderson® offers three glass performance options
Each glass option provides a varying degree of four unique benefits for heating, cooling, visible light transmittance and ultra violet (UV) protection. The right glass solution for you depends on the climate you live in, the architectural design of your home, the orientation of your windows to the sun, and the “custom climate” you desire in the home. On all glass exteriors, special coatings are applied to reduce water spotting up to 99% when activated by sunlight.
High-Perfomance™ Low-E4® glass is our standard offering. Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass, High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass is 45% more energy-efficient in winter and 56% more efficient in summer.**
High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass is the most energy-efficient glass option we have ever offered. Compared to ordinary dual-pane glass, High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass is 45% more energy-efficient in winter and 70% more efficient in summer. It has our highest efficiency rating in cool weather and is exceptional in hot climates where solar heat gain can lead to excessive air conditioning expense. SmartSun™ glass blocks the sun’s heat, while letting in almost as much natural daylight as clear glass, reducing your need for artificial lighting. What’s more, SmartSun™ glass blocks an amazing 95% of harmful UV rays which helps reduce fading on your carpet, drapes, artwork, and furniture but has virtually no effect on the clarity or color of the light that enters your home.
High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun™ glass offers our highest rating against solar heat gain coming through your glass, helping keep your home cooler in warm weather. Our sun glass has a tint coating, reducing the amount of visible light and sunshine streaming in from too bright to just right!
