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.

Energy Efficiency

Selecting the right options for large expanses of glass is an important aspect for balancing wide open views with energy efficiency. Choose from dual pane or triple pane glass with Low E coatings and Argon or Krypton-Argon blend insulating gas. Variations are available to help meet climate and performance requirements across the country, described in more detail on our glass page.

Specialty Glass Options

Our specialty glass options include glass for unique project needs like sound management (STC/OITC), high altitudes, Sea Turtle Conservation Codes and California fire zones. We also offer laminated glass in products designed specifically for hurricane zones.

Screens

Screens for the Elevate Collection feature a durable, low maintenance aluminum surround and non-corrosive charcoal gray fiberglass mesh for consistent performance. A stainable wood surround is also available to match your wood interiors. For cohesive curb appeal, all exterior screens are available in colors to match Ultrex Fiberglass exteriors. For cohesive curb appeal, all exterior screens are available in colors to match Ultrex fiberglass window and door exteriors.

Divided Lites

The look of multiple, individual panes of glass in a window sash is popular in a wide range of architectural styles from historic replications to modern farmhouses. Simulated divided lites, available in a number of different styles, mimic the look of individual panes of glass in a window sash without sacrificing the energy efficiency of a single pane of glass. For true historical accuracy, authentic divided lites utilize individual glass panes, and are available as a custom order on select all-wood windows.
Grilles-between-the-Glass (GBGs) Grilles are permanently installed between the glass panes for a low-maintenance, smooth exterior and easy cleaning. Choose from 13 exterior colors and 4 interior colors.

Window 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.
