The most intuitive advantage of sliding window is simple and beautiful. For living quarters, in order to create a smooth overall impression, developers will choose sliding windows to keep the low-rise and high-rise residents in a unified style, without damaging the overall architectural aesthetic feeling.
For the individual family, the application of sliding window can also avoid damaging the overall design style of the room because of the large opening of the window.
Advantage 2: large window width
The window width of the sliding window is larger than that of the casement window. With the large glass, it can effectively increase the indoor lighting and improve the brightness of the house
Advantage 3: no space
The sliding window adopts the sliding track of the sash with pulley on the window frame. The advantage of this kind of window is that no matter the window is opened outside or inside, it does not occupy additional space, and the structure is relatively simple.
Disadvantages: the disadvantages of the sliding window are related to its structure. As the opening area is only half, it is not conducive to indoor ventilation. Second, the side of the glass facing out is not easy to clean. Finally, the sliding window should slide back and forth by the installation slide. If there is a large gap between the pulleys, it is not conducive to the effect of sound insulation and heat preservation of the window.
