Sliding Window / July 27, 2018 / Tearlach DuLin
We all try to use different things in our home so that our living space looks more spacious. If you are also looking for ideas that can help you to open up your living space then you have the option to use sliding doors and sliding window in your home. These are apt for large openings that require two or more than two panels. One of the best feature of using the doors and windows is that since they slide over on one side overlapping one panel you are able to save more space. When you use the sliding doors and windows at your home then you also add to the aesthetic beauty as they look very appealing and elegant.
At first you will be having a hard time removing and placing the windows back in place. You need to learn how to work on them which later on can be easier. Cleaning these kinds of windows is not that easy especially if you are doing it alone. You need to develop certain skills to be able to perfectly finish the cleaning. Sliding panels are a great alternative to window blinds and horizontal window doors. They have a softer look than glass and can also be great accents in an Asian themed decor. Sliding panels have that special ability to be both wall and window at the same time. They filter light and provide privacy at the same time.
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.
