Windows – Interior Screens

Interior screens, such as those found on Casement and Awning windows, sit within a groove in the interior millwork of the window and use spring-like tension to remain in place.

To remove interior screens, simply lift up on the finger lifts (or finger routes) at the bottom of the screen. This will cause the spring-like mechanism at the top of the screen to compress. Using the finger lifts and continuing to apply upward pressure, draw the bottom of the screen out of the window.

To reinstall the screen, place the top of the screen in the top of the window. Holding the screen using the finger lifts, gently push up on the screen. This will cause the spring-like mechanism at the top of the screen to compress. Using the finger lifts and continuing to apply upward pressure, place the bottom of the screen into the window.


Windows - Exterior Screens

Exterior screens (such as those found on Clad Ultimate Double Hung and Tilt-Turns) utilize a plunger pin system.

To remove the screen, grasp the plunger pins and pull inward until the pins clear the screen lip on the frame cladding.

On Clad Ultimate Double Hungs, push the screen outward, grasp screen frame and pull down slightly. Turn the screen sideways and bring it through the window into your home.

To reinstall the screen, place the screen sideways through window frame, turn it to an upright position and place the top plunger pins against the screen lip at the head jamb.

Pull the screen towards the interior, holding the plunger in the open position. When the screen is flush against the frame, release the plungers to lock the screen against the screen lip.

Please note:

  • Marvin recommends that the operating sash on double hung windows be removed from the window before attempting to remove the screen. Removing the sash will allow easier removal of screen.

  • Certain size screens have a factory bow in the frame; this is to ensure a snug fit and is not a defect.

  • Every screen installed on Marvin products has a label affixed to it that states the following, "WARNING: Screen will not stop child from falling out window. Keep child away from open window." If the sticker is removed, please take extra precautions to make sure children do not lean on the screen, especially when the window is open.


Maintaining Energy Panels

Often confused with storm windows, an energy panel is technically a glazing option. It is a removable, exterior glass panel finished on the edges by a surround. Energy panels cover the exposed glass surface of each sash, and offer added energy efficiency for wood windows with single glazing.

Occasionally make sure that all fasteners on your energy panels are closed securely. Clean and maintain the glass the same way as your other windows for regular interior and exterior care.

Do not caulk around your energy panel. It is designed to allow a certain amount of air circulation.
