Introducing Marvin Modern: An Uncompromising Solution for Modern ArchitectureBy Marvin Windows and Doors
New product line from Marvin Windows and Doors provides modern aesthetics, category-leading performance and dedicated customer support
WARROAD, Minn. (June 25, 2018) – Marvin Modern, a new system of windows, doors and options that will enable architects and builders to flawlessly execute modern design projects, will launch late fall 2018. A new-to-the-market material, Marvin Modern’s proprietary high-density fiberglass exterior, aluminum interior and patent-pending frame design delivers category-leading thermal and structural performance; enabling strength at large sizes, desirably narrow sight lines and longer lifespans. The innovative product line is the result of in-depth research with modern architects and builders, testing and cross-industry collaboration.
“Modern architecture is continuing to grow in popularity and the exacting needs of its architects and builders are well-matched with Marvin’s commitment to cutting-edge design and outstanding quality,” said Brian Johnson, vice president of New Ventures at Marvin Windows and Doors. “More than 100 years of expertise, an established network of dealers and distributors, and thoughtful customer support channels make us uniquely positioned to exceed expectations and deliver uncompromising window and door solutions for modern projects.”
Marvin Modern made its industry debut at the AIA Conference on Architecture and will be released to the market in phases. Marvin Modern Multi-Slide Doors and Direct Glaze Windows will be released in late fall 2018, followed by Marvin Modern Casement and Awning Windows in early 2019, with additional products being added to the line throughout the year. The Multi-Slide Door will be available with Sliding Door Automatic Control, and all products will be available with Marvin’s factory-installed Lock Status Sensor.
The Marvin Modern product line offers category-leading thermal and structural performance, as verified by the National Fenestration Rating Council and the Window & Door Manufacturers Association. The strength of the product line can be attributed to the unique construction of Marvin Modern’s proprietary, industry-first high-density fiberglass exterior and patent-pending frame design.
Pure Modern Aesthetics
Marvin Modern showcases a meticulous approach to modern architecture, with all product frames maintaining a less-than-3-inch sightline. This minimal visual disturbance is upheld even when individual panes are mulled together to create a large window wall.
The product line’s proprietary high-density fiberglass exterior and aluminum interiors provide a simple, clean aesthetic and are available in a curated palette of colors: ebony, bronze, anodized/silver, gunmetal and stone white, with the ability to split finishes on interior and exterior. These finishes are paired with intentionally selected options and hardware, which feature only the most critical details to uphold modern architecture principles. Marvin Modern products have a lower gloss on the aluminum interior, a black spacer bar and black sealant to minimize visual distraction while enhancing natural light remaining true to pure modern aesthetics.
Marvin Windows and Doors’ design of products, processes and services is driven by empathy and a customer-first mentality. As a result, Marvin Modern is an end-to-end solution that fulfills customer expectations at all points of the process from sales, to delivery, to installation and support.
Support for this product line will include tools to help educate and envision the product before purchase, including 3D models in formats that are in high-demand from today’s architects.
All orders will include product weights throughout the process to help builders plan safe handling, as well as special packaging and preserve film on the glass to prevent damage in transit. Lift points and strapping will be included with larger units to assist with machine-aided lifting and transporting. Each Marvin Modern product will be delivered with a tailored kit that includes instructions, hardware, touch-up paint and all of the accessories needed for proper installation. When combined with configured components, having important parts and extra pieces easily on-hand and smartly packaged helps to increase productivity and organization on the project site.
Finally, should any questions arise during the order, shipping or installation process, Marvin Modern customers will have direct access to a dedicated product expert for ongoing support.
Additional information regarding the Marvin Modern product line will be available late fall 2018.
