Sliding windows do not occupy indoor or outdoor space, allowing for easy control of the opening area, making them particularly suitable for window sills. Folding and opening doors and windows is suitable for larger spaces. When opening and closing doors and windows, they slide along the track and are easy to operate.

1. The maximum opening can only reach half of the entire window area.

2. On stormy days, windows can only be closed and cannot be ventilated.

3. Cleaning is quite difficult, it is difficult to wipe the glass on the outward side. Poor sealing, easy entry of moisture and dust, and poor energy-saving effect. The sliding rail under the window frame slides back and forth, with a large space above and gaps between pulleys below, resulting in significant heat loss.
