1. mulling options 


To ease the specification and installation processes for large-scale window walls, Marvin has expanded its mulling capabilities and options. Among the new factory-prepped mulling choices are certified standard, reinforced, stud pocket, and space mulls, along with accessories and field mull kits. Also new from Marvin: narrow frame, a 3/8-inch aluminum mull reinforcement that adds strength and offers narrow sightlines.


2. SCW3000 ­Series

St. Cloud Window

This new line of historic replication windows ­­­and terrace doors is designed around a three-inch frame engineered to maintain a narrow sightline profile yet facilitate the structural needs of large window openings and meet historic requirements for landmark properties. The window offers sound transmission ratings of 45 STC and U values from 0.23 to 0.31. Available for awning, hopper, casement and fixed applications.


3. ED4000, ED5000 Series Exit Devices

Corbin Russwin

Exit devices feature a range of options for enhanced security. SecureBolt offers increased resistance to an unauthorized entrance from the use of credit cards, crowbars, and door shaking. A double cylinder function allows the outside trim to be locked from the inside or outside cylinder—without opening the door. PathLite illumination increases the visibility of exit locations in dark or smoke-filled passages.


4. M Collection


Designed to be soft to the touch from every angle, this collection of ergonomic levers uses gentle curves that contour with the hand for easy actuation. The end of the handle flattens horizontally as it approaches the door, providing a paddle-like surface that reduces the amount of force required to open the door, according to the maker. The line also includes a linear, minimalist lever and an oversized lever.


5. Series 7000

Western Window Systems

Manufacturer offers thicker glass options for its line of oversized aluminum door systems. With thicker glass—8mm thick, or 1.3 inches overall for insulated glass units—these doors can accommodate glass panels up to 96 sf in size, compared to 60 sf with traditional quarter-inch-thick glass and one-inch overall units. The glass units are available with Cardinal Glass’ LoE 366 coatings for thermal comfort.


6. Full Vision Bullet Resistant Doors

C.R. Laurence

Bullet-resistant doors are designed for interior applications, and feature a built-in continuous geared hinge to increase security and reduce visible hardware. The low-profile doorframe and door latch are made for use with a single panel of bullet-resistant acrylic or polycarbonate glazing. It offers Level 1 or Level 3 bullet protection per UL 752 ballistic testing standards.


7. Invista


This low-profile framed operable glass wall for interior applications features no floor tracks, clean lines, solid acoustic performance (38 STC), and clear views. With panels up to four feet wide and a slim frame, the system can enhance daylighting measures in a variety of applications. Its waist-high activated edge pin system simplifies locking/unlocking. Options: six glass types and three door handles in multiple lengths and finishes.


8. High Security Steel Doors

Ross Technology

Doors offer DOS-certified protection against mob-level forced-entry attacks and rifle-level ballistic threats. The 05 model is tested to withstand a simulated mob attack for five minutes. The 15R model is tested to withstand 15 minutes of simulated mob attacks and is resistant to 5.56 M193, 5.56 M855, and 7.62 M80 ballistic rounds. The structural steel, pre-hung assembly is engineered for long-term durability.


9. Feelsafe

Sierra Pacific Windows

Impact-resistant windows and doors are designed to withstand Zone III or Zone IV hurricane-force wind and water damage. The line includes the FeelSafe Bi-fold Door, FeelSafe Push Out Casement, and FeelSafe Aspen Casement. The line brings storm-tested products to the wood window market, without having to upgrade to more costly Zone IV-rated systems. A selection of insulated impact glazing is available.


10. Attack Resistant Openings

Ceco Door

A cost-effective solution for schools, this line of hardened doors, frames, and hardware bridges the gap between standard doors and high-level bullet-resistant openings. The door assembly meets test standards for forced entry and ballistic-resistant levels of protection for various threats set forth based on the FBI's Active Shooter Report. It can withstand a four-minute physical attack after being shot 60 times by an AK-47.


11. Muto Sliding Door


This multifunction sliding door system is designed for use with glass, wood, and other door materials, and features slim mechanisms that remain out of sight. The company’s Dormation damping technology brings the door gently to its end position and eliminates the need for glass preparation. A status indicator allows connection to a facility management system. Suitable for new construction and retrofits.


12. MagLev Glide door system

Maglev Glide

This sliding door system is the world’s first magnetic levitating door. Just as high-speed commuter trains levitate above the guideway, this sliding door technology uses magnetic force to hover above the track. The result is a door system that is quiet and does not drag or stick. Applications include commercial doors, shower doors, barn doors, pocket doors, and patio doors. The system is 100% customizable.


13. IN100 Aperio Wireless Lock

Assa Abloy

Ideal for facilities such as schools and corporate office buildings, this wireless lock allows facilities to leverage existing security infrastructure to expand access control coverage quickly and affordably. The unit can be locked or unlocked remotely in less than 10 seconds. Supports multiple credential types, including smart cards and proximity cards. Options: 50+ lever styles, 14 finishes, black/white reader.



YKK Ap America

This zero-sightline operable vent enables designers to provide ventilation to architectural aluminum wall systems without adding the large sight line of traditional windows. It blends with the surrounding framing system to become virtually invisible when viewed from the exterior. It delivers ample ventilation to meet the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code through Zone 6 with standard low-e glass.


15. Cero Sills


Manufacturer offers four sill options for its Cero slim-framed, large-panel sliding glass wall system: Higher Weather Performance Sill, Flush Sill, Low Profile Saddle Sill, and Low Profile Saddle Hybrid Sill. The newest option, Low Profile Saddle Hybrid Sill, is a combination of the Low Profile Saddle Sill (recessed at 7/16 inch) and the Flush Sill, and is designed to work with varying interior and exterior finish floor heights.


16. Controlgard


This chain hoist for overhead doors features an integral braking system to prevent the hoist from spinning out of control, slamming the door down, and causing the chain to fly up. The hoist only moves when the user is actively pulling the chain. It extends the life of doors, because it controls operation and reduces the risk of abuse, says the maker. The compact system requires just 3½ inches of side clearance.
