Making Apartment Windows More Secure: Tips for Renters and Landlords

5 Benefits That Drive Panel Glides Popularity Among Homeowners

Panel glides are a modern and contemporary window furnishing that are great for full-drop windows but which can also be used on doors. These furnishings are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The popularity of these modern furnishings continues to soar even today, and that is all thanks to the benefits that come with installing the furnishings, as highlighted

1. They Are Easy to Install

Panel glides are quite easy to install, and with a few extra hands to help, you can easily take this up as a DIY project. However, for the best results, your safest bet remains leaving the installation work to the professionals.  You can expect that the installation will not take too long and you can start enjoying your new installation right after.

2. They Are Easy to Operate

Even kids should have no trouble operating panel glides. A wand controls opening and closing operation, and the panel glides seamlessly slide across the channels. As you may see fit, motorisation is also an option for panel glides.

3. They Are Safe

Unsecured blind and curtain cords can be a great safety risk to children. The kids may end up getting strangulated, or trip over the unsecured cords and get seriously injured. To ensure the kids are protected, you will need to do quite a bit including taking the time to secure the cords of chains such that they are out of reach of children.

With wand control, panel glides are very safe to operate, and you don't have to worry about your kids getting hurt because of cords or chains.

4. They Combine Style & Functionality

Panel glides are available in a wide range of colours, and for the blinds, you can also choose from a selection of fabrics and patterns. Not only do these furnishings add a touch of contemporary elegance to your home, but you can choose from among the different fabrics, a fabric that gives optimal protection from the sun. Panel glides are also great as room dividers and enhance the privacy of your spaces.

5. They Are Durable & Long Lasting

You can expect to enjoy your panel glides for a very long time because they are extremely durable and will give you value for your money for many years to come before you ever have to think about replacing them.

Thanks to these and other benefits, it's easy to see why they are such a popular choice for homeowners. Contact contractors who specialise in windows and blinds to learn more.
