Design Options

  • Exterior Finish

    Exterior Finish

    A strong alternative to vinyl, our Ultrex® pultruded fiberglass exterior finish is applied through a patented process to provide a superior, consistent finish. The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) awards certifications to materials that pass numerous, rigorous tests. These tests simulate the harsh conditions that a finish will encounter throughout the life of the window or door. Passing these specification tests and achieving AAMA 624 verification gives independent verification that the Ultrex finish is best in class among fiberglass products.


    Built for durability and low-maintenance, our Ultrex finish is 3x thicker than competitive finishes, with a smooth consistency and strong finish that resists fading, chalking, peeling and cracking, even in the darkest colors. If a design change calls for a new color down the road, our material can be painted without voiding our warranty. Six colors are available in neutral and dark tones.

    Selected: 
    Bronze
    Cashmere
    Ebony
    Evergreen
    Pebble Gray

We offer variations to help meet climate and code requirements across the country, described in more detail on our glass page.

  • Window Opening Control Devices

    Window screens are only intended to keep bugs out, not prevent a potential fall, so we offer Window Opening Control Devices that meet standards created to assist in the prevention of window falls in children under five years old. The Marvin Window Opening Control Device limits window opening to 4" or less when the sash is opened. The device may be disengaged, allowing for further operation to full opening for cleaning or egress and automatically re-engages when the sash is fully closed.
