Marvin Shines with Two New Pearlescent Exterior FinishesBy Marvin Windows
Bright Silver and Copper Meet AAMA 2605-11 Certification
For durability, strength and beauty, Marvin Windows and Doors’ extruded aluminum cladding has long been known as the gold standard. Now Marvin is adding two new pearlescent color options to its clad color selection: Bright Silver and Copper.
The two new additions to the color portfolio satisfy a more modern aesthetic and can contribute to a stunning exterior look without compromising performance.
These pearlescent colors incorporate mica and offer similar aesthetics to anodized aluminum, meaning while they might have the appearance of metal, they offer enhanced performance attributes. Marvin uses aluminum cladding that meets the highest AAMA 2605 standard on all our clad products. An extruded aluminum substrate with an extremely tough surface coating results in significantly superior surfaces on all of Marvin products’ major clad components – frame, sash, casing and divided lites. This standard requires a 1.2 mil. finish coating, which Marvin applies over extruded aluminum (about as thick as a quarter), as opposed to roll-form aluminum, whose thickness is that of a soda can. Marvin’s AAMA 2605 certification offers a 20-year warranty against chalking.
“Marvin is committed to bring solutions to our customers that offer design flexibility and performance,” said Christine Marvin, Director of Marketing at Marvin Windows and Doors. “The demand for more contemporary finishes inspired us to incorporate these latest finishes into our standard clad color palette. These two new pearlescent finishes allow us the opportunity to offer more modern options to our customers that will meet their specific design needs backed by the quality and performance they expect from Marvin.”
