We offer variations to help meet climate and code requirements across the country, described in more detail on our glass page.

Window Opening Control Devices


Window screens are only intended to keep bugs out, not prevent a potential fall, so we offer Window Opening Control Devices that meet standards created to assist in the prevention of window falls in children under five years old. The Marvin Window Opening Control Device limits window opening to 4 or less when the sash is opened. The device may be disengaged, allowing for further operation to full opening for cleaning or egress and automatically re-engages when the sash is fully closed.

*This device is offered in finishes to match all hardware in the Ultimate product line.
