Sliding Window / July 22, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
Window grills vary greatly in price depending on the size of the window and the style of the grill but probably the average is $150$200 per window. Most insurance policies require either a keylocking window lock or security grill. This is sometimes in the fine print. If you dont have one of these forms of security you may be giving your insurance company an easy way to deny your claim and you will be wasting the money you pay on your insurance premium.
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.
The kitchen sliding windows are made of two sashes that can slide horizontally over each other. There is a track that allows the left and right movement of the windows. You can add more that two sashes to make your windows taller and wider. Since the track that is made for sliding of the sashes is little above the ground it doesnt allow the dust to settle on it. This way it becomes easier to maintain the windows and dust will never jam the working of the windows thus increasing its life.
