Sliding Window / July 18, 2018 / Marguerite Mathieu
Primarily it may be the environment that affects the choice of windows. A harsh environment calls for windows that are inside the house rather than exposed to the sun wind and temperature shifts whereas a mild environment allows the use of windows that are exposed to the outside. Ventilation is another important point to be considered while choosing windows. Windows fitted on opposite walls allow for cross ventilation and help keep the rooms cool.
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.
