5045 HORIZONTAL SLIDER

5000 Horizontal Slider

Super Spacer

Our primary focus has been to manufacture energy saving window and door products. Throughout our history we have established ourselves as an innovator in the design and manufacturing capability of insulated windows and doors.

Stringent product testing and innovative design has allowed our products to evolve as market and consumer needs change. In the winter of 1989-90 we started to conceptualize and design our Rhino Commercial Aluminum window and door series. Today we have several commercial window styles in the Rhino line. This window and door series consists of a commercial horizontal slider, casement, single hung, double hung, hopper, awning, fixed and patio door. Each Rhino window reflects the design and manufacturing expertise we've implemented over the years. We also publish our AAMA test results to back up our claims of product performance and quality.

LC-45/LC-50 HORIZONTAL SLIDER FEATURES

AAMA rated slider window

AAMA LC-PG-45-HS rated slider window (120" x 64" 3-lite slider tested).
AAMA LC-PG50 108" x 60" XOX

2 3/8" thermally broken frame depth

2 3/8" thermally broken frame depth: Gerkin offers thermal breaks in the frame and sash for improved thermal efficiency.

Polyethylene foam seal pads

Polyethylene foam seal pads at all sash and frame corners: Gerkin ensures a tight fit at all corners by using these seals to seal out light, air and water.

Integral nail fin

Integral nail fin: Nail fins are a standard feature for this window. The corners are closed which allows for full perimeter flashing. As an option, Gerkin will remove the nail fin for masonry and subframe installations.

Jamb and Mullion Interlocks

Jamb and Mullion Interlocks: The use of two interlocks helps to reduce deflection and creates a snug fit due to reduced movement away from the weather seals. The structure of the window is enhanced and air infiltration is reduced.

Dual Weather-stripping

Dual Weatherstripping: This window features heavy wool pile weatherstripping with a Mylar fin on both sides of the sash. This means that whether there are negative or positive pressures on the window, there will never be a disconnection of weatherstrip, thus giving Gerkin one of the tightest sliders on the market.

Steel ball bearing rollers

Adjustable zinc chromate carbon steel ball bearing rollers: These rollers are designed to last for years with trouble free operation. Our sliders are among one of the easiest windows to operate with a maximum operating force of 18 pounds on the largest window we make. The rollers also offer a secondary height adjustment to help with sightline adjustments after installation.

PVC sill track

Ridged non-weatherable PVC sill track: With the deeper sill track on this slider, Gerkin has incorporated a secondary sill, which the sash rolls on. This PVC product is quiet, doesn't scratch and has a weep system that removes water from the operating area of the sash.

Self-latching deadbolt lock

Self-latching deadbolt lock: This level 10 forced entry rated deadbolt offers automatic locking when the window is closed. This is a great security feature.

Anti- lift stop

Anti- lift stop: Gerkin installs a security feature that won't allow the sash to be lifted out of the lock while the deadbolt is in the locked position. The window must be fully open prior to being able to remove the sash.

Weeps with baffles

Weeps with baffles: Gerkin includes an open cell foam inside each weep hole, which restricts snow, dirt, insects and other debris from entering the window through the weeps.

Standard options

Standard options: Gerkin offers complete subframe and panning systems, snap trims, sill flashing, stacking frames, stacking "H" channel, structural mulls, mull covers and factory applied extension jambs.

5/8" OA double strength glass: Gerkin insulates its own glass and offers a ten year seal warranty as well as a one year stress crack warranty. With the use of the Super Spacer® warm edge spacer system Gerkin insures a long seal life and thermal efficient glass. Standard glass options are LoÉ3, Double LoÉ, bronze and gray tint, obscure and tempered. Internal glass grilles are also a standard option. Custom glass options are available. (Twenty year seal warranty for residential use)

Extruded aluminum screen frames: The strength of extruded screen frames is a major maintenance cost advantage for Gerkin over easily damaged roll form screens.

Other options: Gerkin offers insulated panels as well as a louver system with insulated or non-insulated blank-off panel for PTAC units. This unit can be incorporated into our Rhino window system and used in conjunction with any Rhino window.
