Marvin Introduces Enhanced Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation Window


WARROAD, Minn., April 25, 2017 –  Marvin® Windows and Doors has upgraded its Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation window, enabling it to work harder than ever to deliver superior performance. A contemporary classic, the enhanced Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation window features new, intuitive operation and more flexible installation tolerances, creating an optimal experience from installation to homeowner use, without comprising the best features of the window.

“Marvin is committed to continuously improving our products, and the launch of our enhanced Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation window is another example of our dedication to innovation that performs,” said Kris Hanson, senior manager, product management at Marvin Windows and Doors. “Our commitment to getting the details right is clearly demonstrated through all aspects of the design and meticulous manufacturing of this product. We are confident our customers will agree.”

Key enhancements to the Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation window include updated exclusive auto-locking hardware with one lock point at the center of the top check-rail, replacing through-jam locking points for more natural operation. The unique, patent-pending mechanism automatically locks when the sashes are closed, providing an audible “click” to indicate that the window is locked. Easy removal and reattachment of the lock allows for painting without components shifting out of alignment.

The improved Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation windows continue to provide valuable features that dealers, builders and homeowners have come to expect from Marvin, including:

Design flexibility: With its multiple options for modern homes to historic renovations, the Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation window empowers versatility in design. An array of simulated divided light patterns, interior and exterior color options and hardware finishes are available for complete customization. 

Marvin interior shades can also be seamlessly integrated with no edge gaps for light to bleed through, and offer top down/bottom up operation for maximum control over daylight and privacy. Finish options match the windows, and there are no visible cords or pulleys, allowing the shades to blend into the background when not in use.

Expansive sizes: Available in sizes up to 5 feet wide and 10 feet tall, the new Ultimate Double Hung Next Generation window creates beautiful aesthetics that bring the feeling of the outdoors in.

Superior performance: Top-class performance ratings, including DP50 on most sizes, along with IZ3 certified coastal options, offer greater peace of mind in severe weather.
