Gerkin Introduces THe 5400 Patio Door
Before any new product is introduced, Gerkin makes sure that it will perform exceptionally well in all performance areas, especially in air infiltration. This patio door is no exception. The air infiltration rate at a 25 mph windload is a low .06 cfm/sq. ft. At this rate our door is performing 500% better than what architectural specifications call for!
Gerkin offers this door as a complete factory assembled product, unlike many competitor doors which are knocked down and require field assembly. Since our doors are fully manufactured in a quality-controlled environment, our customers can expect exceptional quality control, performance and workmanship.
As an example of exceptional quality control, we install each door in our "steel wall" at the end of the production line. This simulates the installation of our door and gives our production team the opportunity to thoroughly inspect for fit, finish and operation. Since our doors have already been installed once before they reach the job site, we can ensure confidence that each door will perform and operate with precision once it is installed on your project.

Gerkin Introduces Triple Glazing
Gerkin is now offering triple glazed options for our Comfort Series casements, awnings and fixed windows. Our casement and awning windows can achieve a u-value as low as .17 when using triple glazing with a double LoÉ combination.
With u-values this good, these windows meet the much discussed R-5 window performance. R-5 performance requires a u-value to be at a .20 or less. We have achieved this performance with the use of 1 3/8" insulated glass and LoÉ on two glass surfaces.
Casement windows are available in sizes up to 36" x72" and fixed windows are available up to 28 square feet.
Contact your Gerkin representative for all of the triple glaze performance options and pricing.
