Has someone stolen or thrown  away your sliding section of your window ? if so before you pay the high  cost  of getting a whole new complete window, we don't have them all but we might have what you are looking for, we have a large
selection of aluminum window sliding sections, measuring for sliding sections to replace your slider requires some thinking
 most sliding windows have channels that the sliders go into, but then  there are the exceptions, the windows without channels, we'll talk about  those in a minute, the channel windows are pretty easy once you catch  on.
----------------------------

If you have a slider that is a different size but most important  is as the missing one then you've got it made, you have a sample  but if you don't have a sample then you have to do it the hard way

First  you must measure for the thickness of the slider that was there, to do  this you want to measure the channel width, not the depth you measure  all of the channels and less your measurement 1/16th of an inch.

For the width of the slider  you measure from the deep channel on one side to the center of the  center bar in the middle, you will sometimes see where the lock/handle  has been hitting or rubbing

for the height you measure from the deep channel on the top to the edge of the channel on the bottom less about 1/8th of an inch


 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Sliders  "without channels" run on the flange, there are very few of these kinds  of windows around, they are also hard to fit or  (use other slider  types in there place)

For the width you measure the same as a regular slider

For the height you measure from the inside of the  flange's, "the daylight measurement"
plus about 3/4 half of an inch (which may vary)

Installing Sliding Window Sections
----------------------------------------------------------------
You  simply lift the sider up and out, or sometimes there are anti burglar  devices on the top and you have to open the slider all the way and then  you lift up and out, you simply reverse the processes to install the  slider.
