Introduction

Doors and windows are an indispensable part of our decoration process, among which sliding windows are more common. But a small number of owners do not know much about sliding windows. What is a sliding window? What are the maintenance techniques for sliding windows?

What is a sliding window?

1. Sliding window

The sliding window is a window that allows the sash to slide relatively on the frame track and open horizontally through the track and the pulley.

Because the window sash is the center of force and has no cantilever member, it can transmit the external force to the window frame, and the wind load it bears is much smaller than that of the casement window.

The low requirement for the moment of inertia of the profile is conducive to reducing the section of the profile reasonably and saving the cost.

It is flexible to open, does not occupy space, the process is simple, it is not easy to be damaged, and it is easy to maintain. It is suitable for all kinds of buildings that do not require high ventilation, sealing and thermal insulation.

2. Types of sliding windows

There are two types of sliding windows: left and right and up and down.

The advantage of the sliding window is that it does not occupy the indoor space, the appearance is also very beautiful, the price is economical and the sealing is also very good.

Through the slide rail, with a slight push, the opening is very flexible. Coupled with large pieces of glass, it not only increases indoor lighting, but also improves the overall appearance of the building.

The sash has a good stress state and is not easy to be damaged, but the ventilation area is limited to a certain extent.

What are the maintenance tips for sliding windows?

1. Remove the protective film of the profile

After the doors and windows are installed, the protective film on the surface of the profiles should be torn off in time and scrubbed clean.

Otherwise, a large amount of protective film adhesive will remain on the profile, which is difficult to clean.

On windy days, the sliding window sash should be closed in time.

2. Daily inspection of sliding windows

Especially in rainy days, be sure to carefully check the seams of the aluminum frame. If you find that this position is loose or deformed, you should immediately replace or repair the glue.

3, sliding window track cleaning

During use, the sliding track should be cleaned frequently to keep it clean, so that no hard particles exist on the surface of the track and in the groove, otherwise the sliding window is likely to be stuck during the sliding process.

When pushing and pulling the sliding window, the force point should be in the middle or lower position of the window sash. Do not use too much force when pushing and pulling, so as not to reduce the service life of the window sash.

4. Frame connection parts

Always check the connection parts of the aluminum alloy frame, tighten the bolts in time, and replace the damaged parts.

The vulnerable parts of aluminum alloy doors and windows such as positioning shaft pins, wind braces, and floor springs should be checked frequently, and lubricating oil should be added regularly to keep them clean and flexible.

5. Yarn fan

You can take off the gauze by yourself and wash it with water-soluble detergent.

When the screen fan of the sliding window is in use, it must be paid attention to coincide with the vertical frame of the inner rail sliding fan, so as to maintain a good sealing performance.
