Measuring Sliders for Glass

Sliding windows come in two types, wrap around rubber and  glue in,  in most cases aluminum windows are the wrap around rubber type, but there are still alot of aluminum windows that you glue the glass in, almost all vinyl windows are glue in
With the wrap around type, both the slider and the solid sections
measure the same way, the rubber wraps around the glass and then you pound the metal on the glass , the rule for measuring this type is this, you measure the daylight opening (in between the frame) then measure the depth of the rubber times two, and that is your size
Glue in windows you simply measure where the glass lays, before you break out all the broken glass, take out the snap in bead and measure the old glass, it useally measures about an 1/8th to 3/16ths of an inch less all the way around
