Sliding Window / July 17, 2018 / Marc Girard
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.
Kitchen sliding windows are very easy to fix in your kitchen. If you dont have much space or are not ready to break much wall in your kitchen then sliding windows are the best option. This is because these windows dont need much frame but more of glass so that you can enjoy more of natural light. You can have any size of sliding window in your kitchen from small to very big. It solely depends on your desires and comfort. Big windows will also make your kitchen look bigger.
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.
