Stacking Frames

 


Stacking H Channel

Stacking Frames   Stacking H Channel

All Rhino windows can be field stacked together using an integral stacking frame. (Sliders and single hungs require H channels for side stacking) Windows can be stacked at the head, sill and jambs, which allows for the creation of many window configurations.

 

This accessory is used for side stacking single hungs and sliders together in the field. The H channel can be used for single hung sizes up to 48 x 72 and slider sizes up to 72 x 72.

Sill Flashing

 

Strap Anchors

Sill Flashing   Strap Anchors

Gerkin offers an optional sill flashing that can be used either directly under the Rhino window or in conjunction with the subframe system. This flashing is extruded aluminum and extends 2 5/8" beyond the front of the window.

 

Rhino hopper, awning, casement and fixed windows can be anchored into masonry conditions and extend over conditions such as expansion joints in which anchoring by traditional methods is not possible. The strap anchor allows the window anchor to be located up to 1 1/2" behind the window.

PTAC Louvers

PTAC Louvers

Gerkin can glaze 1" louvers into our window system for PTAC units. When louvers are used with windows, one rough opening can be created instead of two. (The window is stacked on top of the louver frame) This saves framing time and materials and gives a total matching system. Gerkin can provide a plank-off panel with appropriate cutouts to receive the PTAC unit.
