Sliding Window / July 22, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
The sliding frames are apt for homes and offices that have large open spaces. They can be used at areas that use 23 panels and you can thus opt for the stylish sliding door that may open up to the balcony or to the garden. In case your office or home is at a higher lever then you can choose sliding window that can give you a beautiful view and can enhance the look of your home.
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.
Many new sliding windows have key locking latches already installed. Some allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. If your home has these window locks they are usually secure enough to keep your insurance company happy. If your home has only a simple nonlocking latch you should secure them with a keylocking sliding window lock or a window grill. Installing window locks yourself will cost AUD$15$20 per window. Having these locks supplied and installed by a locksmith will cost $40$50 per window.
