Sliding Window / July 8, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
Casement windows are attached vertically with hinges to one side on a wall. They usually open with a crank mechanism. A single window or a pair of windows can be fitted into a frame. They open all the way outward and are wide open from top to bottom and sidetoside. A sliding window is a window that slides along a track inside the window frame. The frame may consist of many tracks depending on the number of windows on the tracks. They open horizontally and give a hundred percent view of the outside.
Kitchen sliding windows helps in having view of the dinner and in keeping an eye on the kids. These also help in enjoying the view outside your house or the beautiful décor of your house. It makes your kitchen beautiful and bright on the sunny days. You will not feel the need of lights during the day time if you have big kitchen sliding windows.
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.
