Sliding Window / July 16, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
To install sliding window locks you need the following tools: Sliding windows can be lifted to varying degrees within their track. If you are using the venting position it is a good idea to fit something in the track to stop the window from being lifted. Small blocks of wood or plastic or just a screw can be used. If fitted correctly this can make the window a lot more secure especially when locking the window in the open position.
To install the track you need a secure surface to mount it too. Make sure your blinds came with all the parts you will need like bracket screw mountings for wood installation. Some paper windows come with a swivel bracket so they can be opened horizontally and pivoted open. You need a minimum distance between the swivel and the walls to allow the doors to open. The number of tracks roughly equates to how solid the window covering will be.
Another benefit of using sliding doors and windows is that it ventilates your home and allows the natural light to enter in easily. Earlier only wood and aluminum frames were available for people but now with UPVC frames more and more people are using the UPVC sliding frames in their homes. This is because the UPVC frames are easy to maintain and are highly durable. They are available in different colors and sizes which allow the user to opt for different designs door that suits their decor.
