Marvin Certified by Passive House InstituteJune 21st, 2013 by DWM Magazine
Marvin Windows and Doors, based in Warroad, Minn., is pleased to announce that it has received certification from the Passive House Institute U.S. (PHIUS) for its Ultimate Casement window.
“Windows are a key consideration in passive building design,” says Christine Marvin, director of marketing for Marvin. “Because our products are made in the USA, Marvin can offer builders a shorter lead time than international manufacturers. And our extensive independent dealer network means we can support the project from the time it’s drawn up until after installation. This is another great example of Marvin working one-on-one with its customers to deliver the perfect windows for each project along with high-tech building solutions.”
“With our long history of custom manufacturing and our skilled, experienced work force, we’re able to craft windows that will meet the highest standards of energy efficiency while allowing design freedom,” says Mike Laufman, senior manager of Marvin Signature Services.
Marvin’s Clad Ultimate Casement meets PHIUS certification in two zones: Zone 3 and Marine South, per the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) map.
