Advantages and disadvantages of sliding windows and proper maintenance


The opening method of sliding doors is different from that of ordinary doors. Most of the opening methods of sliding doors are translational sliding or linkage folding opening. However, many people do not have a deep understanding of sliding doors, so what are the advantages and disadvantages of sliding doors? What should we pay attention to when we use it?​​

First of all, the advantages of sliding doors are as follows;

Separating space to increase space flexibility

No matter how different the styles and materials of the sliding doors are, without exception, they all play the role of separating the space. It can divide a whole space into several small spaces, making the interior more flexible.

The sliding door can also be activated or moved at any time according to the requirements of use, home decoration style and other factors, and the space is divided or closed, large or small, and it is more flexible and changeable according to the user's wishes.

proper sound insulation

Proper sound insulation: Soft sponge, fabric, foam and other materials have a certain sound absorption capacity, so the sliding doors decorated with these materials have a good sound insulation effect.

Convenient and flexible

The advantages of sliding windows are simple and beautiful, large window width, large glass block, wide field of vision, high lighting rate, easy to clean glass, flexible use, reliable protection, long service life, opening in one plane, occupying less space, and easy to install screen windows Wait.

Disadvantages of sliding windows:

The disadvantage is that only fifty percent of the sash can be opened, and the air tightness is poor when closed. In recent years, there have been improved sliding windows with new technology, which can push multiple sashes to one side and fold.

Using high-quality slide rails, it can be opened flexibly with a slight push. 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.

At the same time, there are sliding windows that improve air tightness, but in general, they still cannot achieve the thermal performance of casement windows, and the energy consumption is high, so such windows are rarely used now.

Maintenance of sliding windows:

The dust on the sliding window should be cleaned regularly

If the doors and windows are contaminated with hard-to-clean things such as oil stains, do not use strong acid or strong alkali solutions to clean them.

The particles and other debris inside the frame should be cleaned up in time to prevent them from blocking the drainage channel and causing poor drainage and water leakage.

When opening doors and windows, the force should be moderate, and try to keep the speed even when opening and closing.

Try to avoid hitting the doors and windows with hard objects or scratching the surface of the profile.

When the doors and windows are found to be inflexible or other abnormal conditions during use, the reasons should be promptly found.
