RBA Fibrex vs. Infinity Ultrex

Clearer View: Renewal by Andersen Vs. Infinity From Marvin Windows

  • See the Difference: Infinity from Marvin Ultrex® Frames, 50% thinner than Renewal by Andersen Fibrex® Frames. Enjoy more visible glass, increased natural light, and a stunning view.

  • Ensure Your Child is Always in View: In the Fibrex® window, the child is obscured by thicker frames and reduced glass, limiting the view.

Compare Frame Value: Renewal By Andersen Fibrex® to Infinity From Marvin Ultrex®

RBA Fibrex vs. Infinity Ultrex
  • Made from a safe and natural resource, Ultrex® windows are made from silica sand, one of the strongest & most abundant natural resources in the world.

  • Infinity from Marvin Ultrex® frames and glass, both derived from sand, ensure consistent expansion and contraction. This uniformity, along with thermal setting, prevents issues in extreme temperatures, resisting seal failure and fortifying the durability of the glass

  • Exclusive Acrylic Excellence: The Acrylic is three times thicker than competitors and prevents oxidation, corrosion, along with fading. Marvin’s patented 3-layer acrylic finish, Infinity from Marvin ensures longevity and is validated by third-party verification with a 624 AAMA rating. This rigorous testing guarantees the Ultrex® finish’s resilience to the harshest conditions a window or door may face in its lifetime.

RBA Fibrex vs. Infinity Ultrex
  • Renewal by Andersen frames incorporate a blend of 60% vinyl and 40% wood shavings. While this mixture enhances the strength of the vinyl window, it exposes the frame to common issues associated with vinyl, including warping, stretching, fading, chipping, and peeling.

  • Renewal by Andersen Fibrex® frames experience three times more expansion and contraction than the glass they encase. This movement can cause the frames to pull away from the glass, increasing your chances of seal failure.

  • Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® Frames do not have any acrylic coating to prevent cracking, peeling, chipping and fading.

50% Thinner Frames: Renewal By Andersen Vs. Infinity From Marvin

  • Infinity from Marvin and Renewal by Andersen share over a century of history in Minnesota, with similar beginnings and a focus on quality windows. However, differences emerge in frame materials and craftsmanship, which sets them apart.

  • Ultrex® frames are nearly 2 inches thinner than the Renewal by Andersen frames. Infinity from Marvin features Ultrex® Fiberglass frames offering an expanded glass area, inviting more natural light through slimmer frames, making Infinity from Marvin the ideal choice.

  • In addition to thinner, more elegant frames, Infinity offers a wide range of custom styles, grill patterns, window styles, wood, and color finish options, allowing you to create your own unique style

What Causes Windows To Fail

  • Windows can experience various issues leading to failure, and one common concern is seal failure. This occurs when the glass separates from the frame, causing the argon gas to leak out.

  • Infinity from Marvin’s ULTREX® frames and glass, both derive from the abundant natural resource—sand. The expansion and contraction rate are nearly in sync, minimizing gaps and seal issues. Ultrex® exhibits minimal expansion—87% less than vinyl and 75% less than Fibrex®

  • Infinity from Marvin stands out with frames 8 times stronger than vinyl and 3 times stronger than Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® frames. This durability ensures reliable performance, making Infinity from Marvin the ideal option for your windows.

Ultrex® Excels: Vinyl, Wood, and RBA Fibrex® Compared

Choosing the right material for your windows and doors is a crucial decision with long-term impacts. Your selection influences energy efficiency, home security, and overall quality of life.

Consider the options:

Vinyl vs. Infinity Ultrex®—Bulkier Frame, Less Viewable Glass: 

  • Vinyl can warp and shift under everyday conditions, potentially making windows difficult to open and affecting overall performance. 
  • Ultrex® resists sticking, swelling, and warping, ensuring Infinity windows and doors remain easy to operate. 
  • Vinyl frames, due to the heavyweight of dual-pane glass, require thicker, wider construction, resulting in more frame and less viewable glass. 

Wood vs. Infinity Ultrex®

  • Wooden windows offer classic beauty that, depending on the environment, can require maintenance and care. Infinity windows capture the beautiful details and profiles of wood — without the maintenance.

RBA Fibrex® vs. Infinity Ultrex®

  • ULTREX® windows are manufactured thinner, trimmer, and sleeker, providing more viewable glass. 
  • ULTREX® expands at a virtually identical rate to glass, ensuring tight and true windows resistant to leaks, seal failures, and stress cracks. 
  • Ultrex® uses an acrylic finish that is paintable, fade-resistant and virtually maintenance-free. With a finish that’s 3 times thicker than competitive options, Ultrex® resists chipping, denting or peeling.
  • Compared to other materials, Ultrex® stands as the strongest window framing material in the replacement industry, resisting bending and flexing unmatched by Fibrex® and vinyl.

Our salesman and lead installer demonstrated extreme knowledge in the “infinity” line of windows. Installation of four windows went smoothly in one day. They made sure the windows opened easily before they left and were through with cleanup. Thanks

Peralta F.

The door was recommended by my son and they followed through on the most beautiful door. I was extremely satisfied that they finished it off so fast. The facing around the door looks really good. I used to have a drape pulled across the door but I threw it away because it’s a beautiful door and I like looking at it every day.
