Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
The UPVC frames are affordable and have many benefits over wooden frames or the aluminum frames. They are made from eco friendly material and manufacturing them uses little energy. This makes them ideal for environment conscious people. The sliding windows made from UPVC can be made water resistant and wind resistant as well. Using them in your home can waterproof and soundproof your home easily. If you reside near tropical area that faces strong sun then you dont have to worry about faded window frames.
Next you need to install the head rail. Just like the lower track the pivot brackets must be a few inches from the wall. Sometimes you may need more than one track to cover a room. This also allows the window panels to be stacked upon each other. If you want to add an additional valance to the mix make sure you use one that is deigned for that window panel. Otherwise it will not fit correctly.
You will then need to install the panels into the rails. This can be hard because they are designed to not fall out. There may be Velcro strips you can install on the inside of the head rail to secure the windows. This should also let you slip in the panels. The valance returns attach to joiners but you may have to trip excess fabric. Woven wooden valances come with an aluminium L joint in the corner that inserts into the panel. The last step is to install the cords which move the panels along the track.
