Sierra Pacific Slides Open H3 Window Line
with New Easy-Glide Slider

Innovative H3 Horizontal Slider is an option-rich alternative for new construction and replacement markets.

PHILADELPHIA (May 17, 2016) – Sierra Pacific Windows announces the expansion of its H3 Window lineup with the new H3 Slider Window. The high-performing easy-glide slider fills an important niche in the new construction and replacement window markets, and offers a variety of glass and accessory options.

The H3 product line is one of our fastest growing innovations,” said Vice President of Business Development and Customer Service Bob Taylor. “This new horizontal glider will fit in nicely alongside our H3 easy-tilt double hung, as well as casement, awning, and picture windows.”

Like its H3 counterparts, the new slider has Sierra Pacific’s proprietarily-patented Fusion Technology™, which integrates three perfect materials -- extruded aluminum, vinyl, and wood -- into one perfect window. Its wood interior provides warmth, beauty and thermal insulation, unlike veneers on some windows. It is also protected to its core against water and rot by Sierra Pacific’s exclusively patented CoreGuard™ wood treatment.

Aesthetically, the new H3 slider is unparalleled. Select ponderosa pine is standard, but it is also available in eight other wood species. An innovative snap-lock design eliminates unsightly screws or fasteners on the interior. Additionally, mitered corners and narrow sash stiles and rails offer a full vista view. A tilt-in sash is offered for easy cleaning.

The H3 slider offers a standard teflon gliding mechanism, while precision stainless steel rollers are an option. An interior vinyl track mechanism is available in beige or white to seamlessly blend with a painted white interior. It also comes with simulated divided lite grilles or Sierra Pacific’s between-the-glass grilles.

To accommodate more glazing options (including triple IG), the H3 slider is available up to a 1” glass thickness. Jamb depth options can range up to 8-1/8”.

For greater durability and dent resistance, the H3 slider offers a thicker, stronger 0.055” extruded aluminum cladding. This is at least twice as thick as competitors’ roll-form cladding. Likewise, it comes with an extra-strong 0.078” vinyl base frame for superior rigidity, tight corners, total protection against rot, and enhanced resistance to air or water leaks. Overall, the H3 virtually eliminates racking problems. An integral rigid nailing fin provides greater structural integrity, offering an improved water barrier and easy installation.
