Marvin Adds More Passive-Certified Window Options

Marvin Windows and Doors has added additional certifications to its collection of passive building solutions, with the Clad Direct Glaze Polygon window now certified by the Passive House Institute U.S. (PHIUS). The company’s Clad Ultimate Casement is also certified by PHIUS.

Marvin is the largest American window manufacturer to offer passive building solutions. Handcrafted in America, Marvin’s passive solutions are created by Signature Services, a part of the company that provides one-on-one architectural consulting and unique solutions to meet project specifications for commercial and residential projects.

“Windows are a key consideration in passive building design,” said Christine Marvin, director of marketing for Marvin Windows and Doors. “Because our products are handcrafted in our Warroad, Minn., facility, Marvin can offer builders a shorter lead time than international manufacturers. And our extensive independent dealer network means we can support the project from the time it’s drawn up until after installation. Marvin is known for working one-on-one with its customers to deliver the perfect windows for each project along with high-tech building solutions, and we can really shine in the passive building arena.”

Marvin’s Clad Direct Glaze Polygon offers a 10-year warranty on parts and workmanship and 20 years on glass — among the best warranties in the passive market. With a century-long heritage as a family-owned and operated company, Marvin is committed to serving its customers and standing behind its products.

“With our long history of custom manufacturing and our skilled, experienced work force, we’re able to craft windows that will meet the highest standards of energy efficiency while allowing design freedom,” said Brenda Brunk, product planner for Marvin’s passive building solutions. “We’ve deliberately designed our passive building windows so that they look like any other Marvin window. This means you can have a highly efficient window as part of your whole-house passive project and it can be as large as you like with a full range of options for ultimate design flexibility.”

The Clad Direct Glaze Polygon comes in a virtually endless range of styles and sizes. With six wood species options and nine factory-applied interior stain and paint finishes, customers can create a window to fit any home. The Clad Direct Glaze Polygon offers 19 standard exterior colors on Marvin’s industry-leading extruded aluminum cladding. It features an AAMA 2605-certified finish as standard and also offers an extensive range of custom colors.

To complement its passive building solutions, Marvin also offers an automated exterior shading system that’s fully integrated, fully retractable and fully concealed. Unlike current exterior shading systems, Marvin’s new patent-pending shading solution uses no bulky add-ons that ruin the line of the windows from outside and block the view from inside. The smart technology allows homeowners to preset the precise shading position for optimal energy management, privacy, and mood.

If I'm picturing what you are sinyag correctly, yes. Ironically, I was working on a blog entry very similar to what you are sinyag. In a lesson yesterday, I had my student simulate impact against a pole on the range he then hit wonderful shots because the muscle image was still fresh and he just reproduced it with a drill. This is not finished yet but I think you will get the idea. I will do a video soon.Here is the post draft:Use A Kinesthetic Drill to Map Impact for Recall If you setup in a doorway with the door jamb opposite your front hip socket, then simulate impact by putting the palm of your back hand on the jamb, and turning your core to push against the jamb (rotating like the downswing, not sliding forward), you will push on the jamb and actually program or map this feeling in your brain, Kinesthetically. So why would you want this? Well, it is teaching the muscles the feeling of what you want to achieve through impact. It is kind of like recording a mental picture of all of your muscles (turning and pushing), that you will recall just before you swing. Then once you're setup, recall the feeling of the drill then go. The visualization is so fresh in your mind, your body will reproduce it.
