Comfort Series Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors
These were introduced in 1993 to meet the new market needs in both new construction and replacement projects. These are high quality, maintenance free products that you can get at a fair price. The comfort series includes many different operating systems.
This is Gerkin’s best priced window, no other style window can offer this kind of performance and cost combination with a .04 air infiltration rate and unmatched performance under extreme conditions with it’s double strength glass.
The 6100 series is highlighted by the use of a 2 ½” beveled frame design, fusion welded sash and frame, and triple weather seals. This window has multiple vinyl chambers, internal aluminum reinforcements, heavy-duty block and tackle balances, as well as a warm edge technology glass allowing it to perform at a high level. It also features a sloped sill design without weeps so there is excellent drainage and air infiltration but no weep holes to get plugged!
Double hung windows mean both the top and the bottom can slide open offering more ventilation. The 4800 series have a patented “candy cane” operating jamb stop that seals the ends of the interlock rail and and the face of the lower sash with perfection. No other double hung window offers this. It has 3 or more weather seals in every spot where the sash connects with the frame including the interlock. This window also has full perimeter internal aluminum reinforcements giving it extra support under strong conditions. The 4800 series also has the “assist-operated” block and tackle balances for easy opening and closing as well as easy tilt sashes for effortless cleaning.
