Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
To install sliding window locks you need the following tools: Sliding windows can be lifted to varying degrees within their track. If you are using the venting position it is a good idea to fit something in the track to stop the window from being lifted. Small blocks of wood or plastic or just a screw can be used. If fitted correctly this can make the window a lot more secure especially when locking the window in the open position.
The sliding window air conditioners are mainly used in the small apartments. These consume much less electricity as compared to the other units. These are the best options for achieving cooling in a small area having one or two rooms. You have a freedom on installing individual units in each rooms thus providing opportunity to individuals occupying that room to adjust temperature as per their preferences.
To install the track you need a secure surface to mount it too. Make sure your blinds came with all the parts you will need like bracket screw mountings for wood installation. Some paper windows come with a swivel bracket so they can be opened horizontally and pivoted open. You need a minimum distance between the swivel and the walls to allow the doors to open. The number of tracks roughly equates to how solid the window covering will be.
