Sliding Window / July 22, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
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.
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.
You will then need to install the panels into the rails. This can be hard because they are designed to not fall out. There may be Velcro strips you can install on the inside of the head rail to secure the windows. This should also let you slip in the panels. The valance returns attach to joiners but you may have to trip excess fabric. Woven wooden valances come with an aluminium L joint in the corner that inserts into the panel. The last step is to install the cords which move the panels along the track.
