The Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung from Marvin Windows and Doors was selected at the 2015 International Builders’ Show (IBS) as the winner of the prestigious Best of IBS Award, given by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Chosen by a panel of independent judges, including reporters and building professionals, Marvin’s Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung was selected out of hundreds of applicants as the best and most innovative window product on the market. With the Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung, Marvin masterfully reinvented one of the classic windows of our time by combining state-of-the-art technology with its legendary American craftsmanship, resulting in a traditional-looking window that is deceptively modern and beautifully innovative.

The Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung uses an innovative hardware system, which elegantly combines the traditional double hung look with intuitive operation, modern convenience and added peace of mind. Marvin also has expanded its Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung family to include a round top version and an IMPACT version for regions where hurricane protection is needed.

“At Marvin, we pride ourselves on providing the very best performing products and uncompromising service to our customers,” said Christine Marvin, Director of Marketing at Marvin Windows and Doors. “This new window is a great example of what Marvin does best – create a product that is beautifully designed, and that answers our customers’ needs for functionality and performance. We’re so proud of this window, and are honored to be chosen by the NAHB as one of the best and most innovative products on the market in 2015.”

“With a record number of product submissions, the competition for this year’s Best of IBS awards was fierce,” said Jerry Konter, NAHB’s Conventions and Meetings Committee Chair and a home builder from Savannah, Ga. “The 2015 winners represent the best and most innovative products on the market, and we are pleased to be able to honor them today.”

Thu, 01/15/2015 - 23:00

Available in large sizes and a variety of configurations, featuring easy operation and simple modular installation, this door brings the outdoors in like never before

WARROAD, Minn. – Marvin Windows and Doors’ Scenic Doors line has long been known for its ability to seamlessly bring the outdoors in, and now Marvin has added another option to its product lineup with the introduction of the Ultimate Multi-Slide Door.

Designed with narrow stiles and rails for maximum daylight openings and views, Marvin’s Ultimate Multi-Slide Door is as smooth to operate as it is dramatic to behold. Available in large sizes with standard widths up to 50’ wide and 12’ tall, this door comes in a variety of configurations that include pocket door panels that disappear completely into the wall or a stacked-panel configuration. Additionally, customers can choose to have up to six panels in a uni-directional configuration or up to 10 panels in a bi-directional configuration, offering the ultimate in design flexibility and unbelievable, wide-open views.

Another unique feature of Marvin’s Multi-Slide door is that even with its larger sizes, the stiles and rails of the Multi-Slide door do not differ based on width or height, offering complete design consistency. Furthermore, stainless steel wheels minimize users’ effort when operating the door, making for an easy, smooth experience, no matter the number of panels or size of the door.

Other unique features of the Multi-Slide door include:

  • A flush sill that not only provides a seamless transition between indoors and out, but also meets ADA threshold criteria, making it an attractive choice for those who want to embrace universal design principles in their home.
  • Pull-and-Latch-­style hardware that is recessed into the door panels, providing a comfortable grip and sleek look. This carefully selected hardware is perfect for today’s design preferences with square corners and minimal edges.
  • Multi-point lock that, when closed, adds extra security by locking the door in two places.
  • Easy installation for your building professional, because the Multi-Slide door consists of a modular frame that snaps together on-site and features drop-in panels.
  • Whole-house solutions, because the Multi-Slide door is available in a variety of finishes, wood species and styles, meaning you can now order a complete, matching window and door package for your home.

“We are excited to introduce the latest addition to the Scenic Doors family. The Ultimate Multi-Slide Door is engineered for size and features narrow profiles, wide-open expanses and performance backed by the beautiful design, quality and warranty for which Marvin is known,” said Christine Marvin, Director of Marketing at Marvin Windows and Doors. “The attractiveness of this new door is that it satisfies the demand for outdoor/indoor living and view maximization, regardless of traditional or contemporary architecture. This door transcends style and fulfills a need for an enhanced living environment.”

Marvin’s new Ultimate Multi-Slide Door will be available summer 2015, and it joins Marvin’s other Scenic Door products, which include the Ultimate Lift and Slide and Bi-Fold Doors. For more information, visit www.marvin.com.
