Sliding Window / July 22, 2018 / Burrell Lebel
Windows are a very important part of our kitchen. While remodeling a kitchen people plan more about other things like increasing the room or how to save some money on energy etc. but we forget how important it is to plan the windows in your kitchen. Actually windows are most important part of any room. They help in free flow of fresh air in and out of the room. But for kitchen it becomes vital as due to so many gases produced in kitchen we need proper flow of fresh air inside the kitchen room. The best are the sliding doors for kitchen. These are the best for many reasons especially in a house where there are kids.
Another feature associated with the door is that these are made from glass with different kinds of framing. It allows the natural light to enter into your home which is one of the best ways to open up your living space. The sliding doors and windows can be used inside your home also and can be used as partitions. They are however popularly used in balconies and are especially popular in areas that receive high rainfall or experience high speed winds.
Sliding window locks are often called vent locks as they allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. The recommended gap is 100mm but never have more than 150mm. The theory is that if a head can get through a window a person can squeeze through. The venting position is not as secure as when the window is shut and locked. Therefore you should only leave your windows locked open you are at home.
