Marlin Heavy Commercial windows

image2

Marlin Windows offers a full line of thermally efficient, heavy commercial window systems.  By using a rigid polyurethane "thermal barrier" as an integral part of the window extrusions, these high performance windows will fulfill both your architectural and mechanical design requirements.  


Each Marlin heavy commercial window is custom factory-fabricated using heavy duty Bronze Craft hardware and positive sealing weatherstripping to ensure long lasting superior performance.  A complete line of accessory extrusions are available to meet various installation requirements.

Finishes

Marlin offers both anodized and painted finishes in any available specification or color. Because custom colored windows require extended lead times for color selection, sample submittal, and production as well as additional cost for setup  and minimum order quantities, Marlin recommends this as an option for larger projects that allow for added time.


Marlin inventories the two most popular anodized finishes - dark bronze and clear anodized for all of our window series.  We also stock black anodized for our fixed, casements & awnings.   In addition, Marlin's commercial line windows are also available in a white painted finish, since  these products are often used as a residential upgrade.

t.i.e. technology

Extruded aluminum has proven over time to be the best material for long lasting,  low maintenance commercial windows. Marlin Windows uses high quality aluminum  alloys best suited for window applications. All Marlin windows use extruded  exterior glass stops to allow matching anodized finishes and provide extra  strength under negative window loads.


Marlin thermally improved extrusions are accomplished by placing a specially designed cavity in the extrusion that is filled with a high density polyurethane. The bottom side of the cavity is then debridged with a saw,  resulting in two separate extrusions that are held together by the polyurethane  "thermal barrier". This provides a higher resistance to heat loss and  condensation.

MATERIALS

All  frame and sash members shall be aluminum extrusions of 6063-T5 alloy & temper  with a minimum wall thickness of .094". Frame and sash members shall have a  rigid polyurethane "thermal-barrier" as an integral part of the extrusion which  eliminates all direct contact between interior and exterior aluminum sections.  Glazing stops to be extruded aluminum with a minimum wall thickness of .050".
