  • ensure that all handle catches are properly and securely re-engaged
  • do not allow dust, dirt or grit to accumulate on the running tracks

Standard Friction Vertical Sliders

Balanced Vertical Sliders & Tilt In Balanced Vertical Sliders

  • the sashes are attached to spiral spring counter balances that support their weight, it is not necessary to use great force to move the sashes and they must be moved smoothly and slowly in order to allow the balances to operate correctly, tensioning and de-tensioning as the sashes are moved up or down
  • the balance system can be damaged if the sashes are moved with undue force or too rapidly
  • to open, release the fitch catch on the central interlock
  • open the sashes by applying gentle pressure to the finger-lift or pull sections on each sash

  • re-engage the central fitch catch
  • the tilt in facility is not required during normal daily usage; please refer to the maintenance & cleaning instructions for further information on the operation
