Performance and Energy Efficiency

High Performance Finish

Marvin's clad paint finish provides durability with a maintenance free surface that won't chalk or fade. Our extruded aluminum cladding meets AAMA2605 requirements by incorporating Fluropon coatings, a premium Fluopolymer system containing 70% PVDF proprietary resin.

Marvin products are also available in wood. Exterior wood options include Pine, Vertical Grain Douglas Fir, Mahogany, and primed wood. Specialty species are available.

Energy Efficiency

One of the ways Marvin truly adds value to our windows and doors is through our commitment to building energy-saving performance into every product while still upholding our high aesthetic standards. Because a truly beautiful window or door should not only meet your project's design specifications - it should save energy as well.

Marvin builds energy efficiency into product performance while bringing your inspiration to life. Marvin offers a variety of energy-efficient glass options:

Performance Glass Options

Glazing options such as LoĒ2-272® and LoĒ3-366® enhance energy performance. Tripane glazing, available with argon or krypton gas, provides excellent energy performance. Tripane features two coated panes of glass with a third pane spaced between them. It's available with LoĒ2-272 on both panes, with LoĒ-179 on both panes for high SHGC, or with LoĒ3-366 on the exterior pane and LoĒ-179 on the interior pane for low SHGC. Tempered and laminated glazing options are available to meet special safety and impact requirements.

High performance Marvin windows with Tripane glazing and argon or krypton can achieve low U-values.
