First of its Kind Corner Window
Marvin Windows says its new window is the rust-ever to make the turn around corners without a structural member blocking the view. The window's two panes of glass make the 90? turn without any seam at the corner joint.
"It requires cantilevered structural framing to support the corner so in most cases we expect it to be used on new construction. But it can be used on existing homes if some rebuilding is done," says Loren Adams, company representative.
The corner window can even be installed on a flat wall to provide an interesting add-on "corner".
The window was made possible by a new 2-stage heating process to bend the glass with no visual defects. The window's avail-able in 7 sizes up to 60 in. tall and 40 in. wide from corner to edge, which gives 80 in. of glass around a corner. Windows can be stacked to provide a 10-ft. tall see-through corner. The frame is 1-5/16-in. thick pine with strong 4 9/16-in. jambs. The 1-in. space between the double panes of glass is filled with insulating argon gas.
A 60 by 40 in. window sells for $2,600. For more information, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Marvin Windows, P.O. Box 100, Warroad, Minn. 56763 (ph 800 346-5128; in Minn., call 800 552-1167).
