marvin ultimate casement - stc and oitc values

Posted by stevew7 (My Page) on

I am considering using Marvin Ultimate Casement Wood Clad windows for my home's window replacement project, mostly based on the positive reviews from this forum!

However, I cannot find the STC and OITC values (sound performance values) with the standard LowE-II glass, and the upgraded LowE-II laminated glass. Strangely, they are not in the ADM PDF on Marvin's website. Does anyone have a document from Marvin that publishes these values?

Thanks for your help,

Why don't you call Marvin and ask? I'm sure they can provide you with the info.

Marvin just released the STC/OITC testing of the Ultimate casement. The standard low e (272) tested at an STC of 29 and OITC of 23. They did not test a laminated sample. Using unlike thicknesses (3/16" over 1/8") it achieved a 34/27 (which is comparable to what you would expect to get using lami but at a significant savings). Lastly for airport situations, they tested an interior storm panel with 4" air space that achieved a 46/34.
As skydawggy mentioned, you should be able to get this at your local Marvin dealer.
