Awning Windows / October 25, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin.
Depending on the window treatments you chose you have the opportunity to enjoy an unobstructed view of the outdoors and maximize the potential for allowing fresh air ina great energysaving benefit during the warmer months when a subtle breeze can save you from constantly running your air conditioning. These windows are also space savers because they slide rather than crank out. You can be sure that a vinyl sliding window will not interfere with an outdoor deck patio or walkway and they wont interfere with or open into your landscaping.
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.
Especially good for covering patio doors these window coverings preserve an outdoors look. Some interior decorators also use them as attractive room dividers. The dramatic size of these wall to wall floor to floor window coverings creates a striking image. To install these window coverings you need some kind of track to hold the window frame. Unlike wood blinds where the window and blinds are separate in sliding panels they are the same. Some have tracking on the top and bottom while some only have it on one side.
You then use a dry non lint cloth or those absorbable cloth used in cleaning cars to dry your window. Dont forget to also clean the track where the window is and the area around it. Place Your Windows Back. After the cleaning and drying is done you need to put them back together. Put your windows back following a reverse order of how you removed them. You need to make sure that the sliding windows are reinstalled securely and there will be no chances of them being accidentally removed.
