Specially developed with great strength and durability to withstand
hurricane force winds and flying debris, our impact products are
designed to have the same beautiful appearance for which other Kolbe
products are known. No unsightly brackets or visible rods that hold
the sash in place; no extra locks to fasten in order for the units to
provide exceptional performance against the elements. K-Force impact
products are independently tested to meet or exceed the strict building
codes of coastal regions. In fact, some Ultra casements with impact
modifications have achieved design pressure ratings of up to 85 psf.
Exterior Brickmould & Casings
Whether you choose wood, clad or vinyl products, we have many
exterior brickmould, casing and nosing profiles. If your project demands
a unique touch or historical accuracy, we can create custom profiles
for most of our products. The trim options are color-matched to
the windows as standard. But, for added interest, ask for a color
combination between the trim, frames and sash.
Brickmould, casing, and sill nosing are factory-applied as standard to
Heritage Series products for convenience on the jobsite. For Ultra and
Latitude Series products, brickmould may be ordered factory-applied or
it may be field-applied by snapping it into the integral accessory grooves.
Fully-Aligned Sight Lines
Most of Kolbe’s complementary units are sash set as standard. This
means that, in most instances, the sight lines of windows and doors
will align with the transom or radius windows stacked above. Plus, if
you choose one of our divided lite options, the bars will align between
mulled and stacked units as well. No more “unpleasant surprises”
when you stand back to admire the project you’ve worked so hard to
complete. Kolbe also offers direct set transom and radius units.
