Andersen 400 Series Gliding Window
400 Series

Gliding Window


400 Series gliding windows have a single sash that glides horizontally to allow for full top to bottom ventilation. Because the sash do not open outward, they are an excellent choice for rooms that face walkways, porches or decks. Made of wood protected by a vinyl exterior, it's our best-selling gliding window.
