The commercial-grade window and door designs within Kolbe’s Teutonic Series lead the industry in thermal performance,
allowing you to create building envelopes with large window-to-wall ratios that minimize energy loss while reducing
condensation, enhancing security and improving acoustic control. The energy performance of the Teutonic Series is simply
outstanding, with glass options available to reach total U-values as low as 0.17 for a fixed window. These performance
attributes make the Teutonic Series an attractive alternative to all-aluminum systems.
The energy performance of the Teutonic Series is simply outstanding, with glazing
options available that can achieve energy performance ratings up to R5, with
U-values as low as 0.20 for a tilt-turn product and 0.17 for a fixed window. The
results of using these products in commercial buildings can be seen in lesser
HVAC loads and lower heating/cooling costs. The compression seal technology
that is used in the design and construction of these products provides a tighter
building envelope which also helps improve the building’s overall performance.

Whether using Teutonic Series products in new construction or replacing older
aluminum products, the benefits of using these high-performing windows and
doors are numerous. The purposeful and practical design of steel-reinforced,
thick-wall uPVC frame and sash members provides the core of its strength and
functionality in a sustainable building. The uPVC material provides a very long
service life and can resist fading over the lifetime of the product. The Teutonic
Series can also contribute towards points within the LEED
The Teutonic Series meets many of the same structural performance values that aluminum systems provide, yet far
exceeds aluminum on thermal performance. This is accomplished through the unique design and engineering of the series:
