Vertical Sliding Pane Kits
This is specially designed for traditional sash windows, but is ideal for any window where top or bottom access is required. As with the vertical sliding System the panes may be of equal or unequal size to match your window layout. The panes are held open when required by an ingenious system of ratchets which support the pane in any position. The vertical sliding system is suitable for windows up to 8 feet high (2.44m) or 4 feet (1.22m) wide but no single pane should exceed 12sq.ft (1.12 sq m) in area.
It is normally fitted to the inside of the window recess. If, however , you have no suitable recess, the system may also be fitted directly to the flat wooden surface of the window surround. In either case there should be a minimum flat area of at least 42mm (1 11/16" ) to accept the tracks.
Horizontal Sliding Pane Kits
The system makes up to give two panes which may be of equal or unequal size to match your existing window layout. The basic two-pane system may be extended to three or more panes by using one multi-pane kit for each additional pane. The panes slide smoothly in tracks which are fitted to the window recess. There should be a flat area of at least 42mm ( 1 11/16" ) all round to accept the tracks. The system is suitable for windows up to 8 feet (2.44m) wide by 6 feet (1.83m) high.
Hinged Pane Kits
The hinged pane system makes up to give one hinged pane. It may be hinged from the side or from the top to match your window. The system fits directly to the flat wooden face of the window surround provided it is at least 32mm (1 1/4") wide to accept the fittings.
Where two hinged panes are used on the same window , allow at least 50 mm ( 2" ) where the panes meet.
