No longer should you have to feel shackled by the limitations of clad windows and doors. It’s time you and your customers had a choice. That’s why Marvin is taking a stand with 19 color options, 9 casing profiles, 6 subsills, and an extremely durable extruded aluminum that’s substantially stronger than roll-form aluminum with a protective Kynar® finish that offers superior resistance to fading and chalking.
Marvin is giving you the product selection you deserve and making them easier than ever to order. Just one call and all your needs are covered. Everyone will appreciate windows and doors made with furniture grade construction that are easy to install, flexible in design and come with a wide array of options to help a vision come to life. Marvin windows and doors not only perform beautifully, but are also a true reflection of personal style and an end to exterior monotony.
Marvin is the only window manufacturer to use high quality extruded aluminum cladding as standard on our clad products. We also hold our finishes to a higher standard than the rest of the industry.
Marvin extruded aluminum is substantially stronger than rollform aluminum. Marvin exterior clad products are so strong, they exceed the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s toughest specification (2605-05) for aluminum cladding, which requires extruded aluminum and a 70% Kynar finish. In addition to a great exterior, the interior is made from wood, not only making them beautiful but also improving thermal efficiencies, creating a product that’s tough to beat.
This high-performance coating is the same used on monumental high-rise buildings all over the world, where repainting the 50th floor is the last thing any owner wants to do. Marvin offers that same quality finish for our customers. The result is a far-and-away superior finish so strong that it will last 20 years with excellent resistance to loss of adhesion, chalking or fading.
Lasting durability starts with a chemical reaction. Our standards for durability and beauty are high, so it took years of engineering to master the superior finish that comes standard on all Marvin clad products. During manufacturing, we create a chemical bond between the extruded aluminum and Flurospar®, a fluoropolymer finish with 70% Kynar 500® — an advanced and extremely hard finish. Extrusions go through a five-step pre-treatment process that includes cleaners, rinses, and surface preparation to ensure the Flurospar finish adheres smoothly. Our extrusions are formed, then painted, which means a quality paint adhesion unlike roll-form which is painted then formed.
This means beauty is not interrupted by chalking, pitting, fading, erosion and marring. Your Marvin clad products will retain color and gloss for years to come. We wouldn’t settle for anything less.
The profiling of our clad extrusions accurately replicates the beauty and sophistication of real wood. But at Marvin, history doesn’t repeat itself; it’s always improved upon. For your design vision, we have the ideal aluminum clad windows with classic-lined profiles to help achieve the type of curb appeal you have in mind.
