Marvin Ultimate Replacement Casement

marvin_replacement.jpgCasement windows are great until it comes to cleaning time. Unless you have an extra elbow in your arm, there is simply no way to clean the outside of the window without getting the ladder out and trampling the rose bushes. A leading window manufacturer, Marvin, has just released a product that solves this problem. With the use of a clever hinge, their Ultimate Replacement Casement is capable of opening up and then swinging back on itself, exposing the outer face to someone standing inside. An amazing window can look like junk if it's not clean, and with this interesting hinge solution, it looks like Marvin has solved a complaint that has been around for as long as the casement.

Watch the window in action here (you don't see the hinge until about 3/4 of the way through).
