Gerkin panning is designed to cover existing window frames for jobs when tear out is too costly or can not be done. The panning has 3 7/8" legs on the exterior that can be field ripped to cover many conditions giving you the look of a new window system without the headache of tearing out the old window frames. The panning has a sloped sill ensuring that the moisture drains away from the opening. The jambs and head have a vinyl bulb on the exterior leg for ease of installations. Gerkin supplies interior clips that fasten to the window and the condition trapping the window to the panning system. The panning is color matched to the Rhino windows which gives the opening a one piece finished look. The panning can be used in a one window opening or multiple window configurations with the use of Gerkin's structural mullion, h-channel and stacking frame options giving the end user many different configurations to choose from. Gerkin also has an optional 1"x 3" interior snap-trim to cover up the interior condition.
Some of the advantages of using the Gerkin panning system are:
- Allows windows to be installed over existing window frames.
- The panning system helps to save time and money.
- All fasteners are hidden.
