Marvin & Integrity Swinging Doors:

 Operation and Maintenance

Make sure to clean out debris from the door drainage system

Make sure to clean out debris from the door drainage system.

To operate the door from the interior, grasp the active panel’s handle lever and rotate it downwards. Pull the door panel towards you for an Inswing door, or push the door outwards for a Outswing door.

Doors require very little maintenance to keep  functioning efficiently. Most problems can be eliminated by keeping the sill clean, ensuring smooth door operation. Chemicals, solvents, paints, and other harsh substances should never come in contact with the sill. Remove any paint, grease or sealant with 50% isopropyl alcohol. Finished wood doors need to adjust to humidity levels in a home and may warp slightly as seasons change (allow one full year for your door to go through this process). Door handles can be wiped down with a damp cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges. Marvin doors have a special weep drainage system incorporated into the sill design. Periodically check the sill to be sure the weep system is free from debris. To maintain sill appearance, wash only with mild soap and water solution.

Handle Operation for the Multi-Point Lock
Always close and lock your passive panel first and the operating panel (with thumb turn) second. Marvin’s multi-point hardware has locking bolts at the head and base of the door. Lifting the handle 45 degrees upward will set the head and foot bolts in place for a secure seal. A 90 degree turn of the key from the outside or the thumb turn on the inside will lock the deadbolt in the handle assembly. When the deadbolt is unlocked, downward pressure on the handle will release the bolts and latch, and the door will open. Engaging only the deadbolt will offer some security. However, to obtain full security and full performance against air and water infiltration, engage the head and foot bolt along with the dead bolt.

NOTE: An operating passive panel will have either manual head and foot bolts or multi-point hardware.

Adjustable Hinges
Some Swinging Doors are equipped with adjustable hinges which allow horizontal and vertical adjustment after the door has been permanently installed. To adjust panel(s) horizontally away from the hinge jamb, open the panel slightly to access the hinges, turn horizontal adjustment screw counter-clockwise using a 5/32” (4mm) Allen wrench. To move the panel toward the hinge jamb, turn the Allen screw clockwise. To raise the panel vertically, first adjust one hinge and remaining hinges equally by turning the vertical adjustment screw clockwise using a 5/32” (4mm) Allen wrench. To lower the panel, adjust all hinges equally by turning the screws counter-clockwise. Be sure to make horizontal adjustments first. Make any vertical adjustments ONLY after the horizontal adjustments are complete.

NOTE: When raising or lowering panel vertically, it will be necessary to loosen or tighten all vertical adjustment screws so the weight of the panel will not be on just one hinge. Compare alignment marks on each hinge to ensure even weight distribution of the panel.

Butt Hinge Adjustment
On doors equipped with butt hinges, there are 1/32” (1mm) shim behind each leaf on all hinges. Horizontal panel adjustment is possible by removing or redistributing these shims.

Marvin Ultimate Push Out Casement

Operation and Maintenance

Ultimate Push Out products offer a universal look and a more traditional alternative to crank out casements and awnings. To open, turn the lock handle horizontally and push the window sash open. To close, grab the handle and pull the sash to a closed position. Turn the handle downward to lock. The Push Out Casement features a friction limiter which holds the sash in place and allows the sash to lock open at multiple locations. To adjust the friction limiter, follow the Marvin Ultimate Push Out Supplemental instructions (part number 19970045) which can be found on http://www.marvin.com.

To operate the Ultimate Push Out Awning, rotate the lock handle vertically and push the window open. To close, grasp the handle and pull the window sash shut. Lock the window by rotating the lock handle horizontally.

To keep your Ultimate Push Out Casement or Awning operating smoothly, clean the window track occasionally with a dry brush. To help prevent the sash from sticking, apply a small amount of dry lubricant to the track (available at your local hardware store) if necessary. Do not use oily lubricants.

Wash-Mode Feature on the Push Out Casement

The Ultimate Push Out Casement features the revolutionary wash mode system which allows the entire window to be washed from inside the home. Unlock and open the sash. Swing the window all the way open and pull it across toward the lock. You now have access to the exterior of the window.

When the sash is closed completely the tabs will make an audible “clicking” noise, indicating the locks are engaged. Periodically clean the sash slide track located under the sash. Spray slide track lightly with furniture wax to prevent sticking. Be sure to wipe off any excess wax.

How to Remove the Glider Sash

Open the sash to the fully open position, depress the sash retainer bar latch and slide the sash retainer bar completely free of the sash. Grasp the sash on both sides, tilt the top inward and remove the sash. To install the sash reverse the above procedures.

Install the Screen (Clad)

Detailed information on installation, sash removal and screen removal can be found in the installation section of our website (www.marvin.com).

Ultimate French Casement Operation and Maintenance

The Ultimate French Casement features two sash with a roto mechanism attached to each sash. The sash lock, located on the sill, operates a locking mechanism that will lock primary sash to the frame on two sides while activating a slide locking mechanism that locks the secondary sash to the primary sash. To operate the Ultimate French Casement, first unlock it by turning the lock handle. Crank the primary sash handle to open the primary sash first, followed by the operation of the secondary sash handle. To keep your Ultimate French Casement operating smoothly, clean the window track occasionally with a dry brush. To help prevent the sash from sticking, apply a small amount of dry lubricant to the track (available at your local hardware store) if necessary. Do not use oily lubricants.

Ultimate Push Out French Casement Operation and Maintenance

The Ultimate Push Out French Casement incorporates no roto mechanisms like the crank out unit. Instead, it features a robust adjustable friction limiter device to hold the sash in place when opened, and locks the sash open at multiple points. The multi-point lock on the primary sash locks into the head, sill, and into the stile of the secondary sash. The lock on the secondary sash activates bolts that go into the head jam and sill. To operate the Push Out French Casement, pivot the handles horizontally and simply push the sash open. To adjust the friction limiter, follow the Marvin Ultimate Push Out Supplemental instructions (part number 19970045) which can be found on http://www.marvin.com.
