Sliding windows are windows especially designed for those people who want an unobstructive view of the outside while at the same time still having the protection and functionality of a window. These windows are easy to use you just have to slide them from one another to open or close them. Window cleaning has been already a difficult task what more if you are cleaning a sliding window?
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.
