Sliding Window / November 6, 2018 / Marc Girard.
People have now started opting for sliding door also and especially when they have a good patio and garden. It makes the home look spacious and helps you enjoy a beautiful view outside. In case you are at the patio then you can still know whats going inside your home. The sliding door can also be used inside your home as a partition or to convert two rooms into one. Many people use this kind of door to distinguish their dining room from the living room. When you throw a party you can open the door so that the guests can feel comfortable and dont feel crammed together.
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.
Another benefit of using sliding doors and windows is that it ventilates your home and allows the natural light to enter in easily. Earlier only wood and aluminum frames were available for people but now with UPVC frames more and more people are using the UPVC sliding frames in their homes. This is because the UPVC frames are easy to maintain and are highly durable. They are available in different colors and sizes which allow the user to opt for different designs door that suits their decor.
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.
