Sliding Windows are one of the most popular window options out there. Since they slide open and shut, the manual effort of operating them is very easy. From a maintenance point of view cleaning is also a breeze because both sides of the glass are usually accessible. They offer good natural light and air ventilation for bedrooms, bathrooms and in kitchens. With the panel interlocks and simple turn locks you can have the needed security for your windows too.
The other important benefit that is drawn from the sliding mechanism is that it does not require additional space to open them. Perfect for room and corridor windows where there’s not an inch to spare. With no external protrusions it is also easy to add insect or security screens.
The number of panels plays an important part for sliding windows, for it determines the percentage of the opening you’ll have. For example, a 2 panel window can give an opening of 50%. You may choose the preferred number of tracks for your frame. One track per panel will provide you maximum opening, however the on the flip side this would increase the width of the frame.
