Q: Are there different types of Anlin windows?

A: Anlin windows come in a variety of styles. Here are the most popular ones.


Single Slider Window

A single slider window has one fixed sash and an opening and closing sash that slides from one side to the other. Due to their inward opening, single slider windows are ideal for rooms close to shrubs, trees, walkways, and patios.


Double Slider Window

A double slider window allows for more air circulation as both sashes can move left or right. The double slider doesn’t open outwards, so it can be installed in rooms close to shrubs, trees, walkways, and patios. A deeper frame is required for double sliders to accommodate the double-acting sashes.


Single Hung Window

A single-hung window consists of two sashes. During opening, the bottom sash slides up and the top sash remains stationary. The bottom sash also tilts inward, making cleaning easy from inside the house.


Double Hung Window

Double-hungs have two movable sashes. They can both open simultaneously for improved ventilation, and they tilt in so they can be easily cleaned from the inside.


Casement Window

Casement windows provide an unobstructed view while also allowing air to circulate. Hinges on either side allow them to swing outward easily with a crank handle.


Awning Window

Awning windows open outward from the bottom with a crank. They provide ventilation as well as rain protection.


Bay & Bow Windows

The bay or bow window adds dimension to your room, broadens your view and brings in more natural light. The bay window consists of three panels and offers a more pronounced, angular projection. A bow window is comprised of four or more panels, creating a more gentle and rounded appearance.


Picture Window

The clear views and abundant natural light from picture windows make any room feel spacious and bright. A picture window does not open, so there are no moving sashes to block the view.


Geometric Window

The term geometric window is used to describe shapes that do not have four 90-degree corners, such as half-rounds, French arches, trapezoids, and triangles. Your San Francisco home can benefit from their bold architectural features, add of natural light and increased visual interest.


Garden Window

The garden window is a great choice to brighten up kitchens and bathrooms. Besides providing more light into the room, they also provide a perfect shelf for plants and décor.
