Consumer Reports included Marvin’s take on the dark interior finishes trend, as well as a mention of Marvin’s new Lock Status Sensor in a roundup of trends the magazine spotted at the International Builders’ Show.

“And window makers haven’t overlooked the smart home trend. At Marvin Windows and Doors, Hanson displayed a prototype of its Lock Status Sensor in which sensors are integrated into the frames making it possible for homeowners to set up a smart home system that shows whether a window is unlocked, open, or closed and locked. If the homeowner isn’t ready to set up the system at first, it can be connected at a later date without further installation.”

REALTOR Mag on Healthy Homes

Wed, 01/03/2018 - 10:53

In a focus on how homes can support healthy lifestyles, REALTOR Mag reports that “today’s focus on clean, connected, and toxin-free living may have its roots in the hospitality industry, but this trend is making its way into multifamily developments and single-family homes.” Marvin Windows and Doors’ Director of Corporate Strategy and Design, Christine Marvin, shared further insights on this trend with REALTOR Mag: “Advances in window and door technology can help make the nature we do have available to us more readily apparent from the indoors. While many glazing options are becoming larger, other window systems are being designed to be lined up to fashion a wall of light and unobstructed views, says Christine Marvin, director of corporate strategy and design for Marvin Windows and Doors. Door manufacturers are also using more glass and offering greater flexibility to fold away or slide doors into pockets.” Read more at REALTORMag.org.
