Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
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.

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.
