Sliding Window / July 14, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
You can slide the door panels or the window panels on one side to open them. The sliding windows allows sunlight to enter your home and if you keep the windows open then it also keeps your home well ventilated. In case you have a beautiful garden then a sliding window overlooking the garden would also add richness to your home. The enchanting view would be visible to you from your home and would certainly add a beauty to your home as well. This kind of frame also gives you the chance to experiment a lot and you can use beautiful drapes and curtains to make it look more appealing.
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.
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.
