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
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.
For fast track and smaller jobs, Marlin inventories the two most popular
anodized finishes - dark bronze and clear anodized. 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.
