I am building a pole barn and have a small wooden window to install. This is a horse barn, and windows must be high or they are dangerous to the horses. The window will be 16 inches below the roof, but it cant hinge inward or some of the larger horses could still hit their head on it and get hurt or bust the window off the hinges.
This is a steel pole barn with 2x6 framing nailed flat against the poles and covered with the steel sheets. The window is 1 1/4 inch thick, so it could easily slide between the 2x6s and a sliding window is preferred since it wont be in the way or get broken.
My question is what do they sell that I can use for tracks. Just sliding it on the 2x6 edges would leave a real loose fit and the window would probably jam against the ribs in the steel siding. Do they make something for this use? Or is there something else I can use?
