5900 SINGLE HUNG

5900 Single Hung

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-50 SINGLE HUNG FEATURES

AAMA rated single hung window

AAMA LC-50 rated single hung window.

2 3/8” thermally broken frame depth

2 3/8" thermally broken frame depth: Gerkin uses a thermally broken frame and sash for improved thermal efficiency.

Polyethylene seal pads

Polyethylene seal pads at all sash and frame corners: Gerkin ensures a tight fit at all corners by using seal pads 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 or subframe installations.

Easy tilt in sash

Easy tilt in sash: The operating sash uses attractive flush mount tilt latches for easy cleaning.

Self-latching lock

Self-latching lock at sill: For safety and convenience, the operating sash locks automatically at the sill when closed. The latches are concealed from plain sight and are easily activated by lifting up on the spring-loaded latches.

Sloped sill

Sloped sill: This feature eliminates the need for weeps under the sash. Air infiltration performance is enhanced due to this feature.

Smooth Block and tackle

Smooth Block and Tackle balance system: The block and tackle balance is one of the most reliable and long lasting balances available. This balance allows for an easy operation at all operating positions.

Mullion Interlock

Mullion Interlock: The use of a mullion interlock helps to reduce deflection and creates a snug fit. 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 two locations of the sash. A bulb seal at the sill and interlock seals make this window one of the tightest single hungs available.

5/8" double strength glass

5/8" double strength glass: Gerkin insulates it’s own glass and offers a twenty year seal warranty as well as a one year stress crack warranty. With the use of the Super Spacer® warm edges spacer system Gerkin insures a long seal life and thermal efficient glass. Standard glass options are LoÉ3 , bronze and gray tint, obscure and tempered. Internal glass grilles are also a standard option. Special order glass options are available.

Extruded aluminum screen frames

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

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.

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