                                              HORIZONTAL SLIDER
                                              Gerkin has long been known for building the best sliding windows on the market! With
                                              our long history in building this style window, we have perfected the performance of this
                                              window to the envy of our competition! The 6000 slider is tighter than many of our
                                              competitor’s best performing casement style windows!

                                              No other style window can offer the overall value in performance and cost as can the
                                              6000 series slider. The 6000 slider is our most value priced window, but offers terrific
                                              performance with an incredibly low .04 air infiltration rate. The 6500 window
                                              compliments the 6000 slider as a stand alone fixed window or can be used to mull fixed
                                              and specialty shapes in order to create custom configurations.

We have meticulously designed this window
to work with unmatched performance under
extreme conditions. We have multiple
chambers of vinyl along with areas of
extruded aluminum reinforcement and double
strength glass. This window really shows its’
strength and performance under the harshest
of conditions.

This stylish 2 1/2” slimline design has a beveled
frame profile, fusion welded sash and frame
corners and twin weather seals. The 6000 glides
easily on two sets of tandem rollers and closes
into a fully interlocked frame.

If you’re looking for a terrific appearance, great
performance, easy operation and low
maintenance all at a very reasonable cost, the
6000 slider is a great choice!

Gerkin warrants to the original purchaser of the residential Comfort Series Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors that it will repair or replace, at the company's option,
any vinyl component, window or patio door determined to be defective in material or workmanship under normal residential use. Residential is defined as a single

defective unit and reinstallation of the new unit. Gerkin is also not responsible for any other incidental costs related to removal or reinstallation.

Comfort Series Vinyl Windows used in multifamily or light commercial buildings will carry a 10-year warranty for the frame, sash or any other vinyl component. All
other stipulations of the warranty are equal for single-family residential or multi-family commercial applications.

The warranty period on failure of hermetic seal of insulated glass (other than breakage) is limited to 10 years from the date of purchase. Stress crack warranty is
1 year from date of purchase.

The warranty period on failure of all hardware and weatherstripping is 5 years from the date of purchase.

been received by Gerkin.

Gerkin shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages resulting from defects in workmanship or material. Some states do not allow -the exclusion
