Divided Lites and Glazing Beads

Commercial projects often require very specific architectural details.

Divided lites, grilles and glazing beads can help to successfully achieve

your aesthetic goals. Choose a standard colonial pattern or replicate an

existing pattern. We can even help create a completely unique pattern.

True Divided Lites

True divided lites are often necessary for projects that must meet rigid

historic district regulations. They are available for most Heritage Series

wood products in various widths.

Performance Divided Lites

Performance divided lites (PDL) are available for most of our products.

Options include various widths, colors and profiles. Beveled profiles are

standard, however ovolo and square interior bar profiles are available for

many products as well. Plus, wood glazing beads can match those PDL

historical bar profiles. The great advantage of PDL is that it simulates a

historic look while maintaining energy efficiency.

Glass for All Climates

To achieve energy efficiency across climate zones, we use double

pane insulating glass with LoE


-270 coating for most products. For

many products we also offer triple pane insulating glass, which can

achieve even better energy ratings. These options allow many of

our products to meet or exceed energy efficiency standards that

qualify for ENERGY STAR


in the USA and/or Canada. In addition,

several Kolbe windows have met the ENERGY STAR

Most Efficient criteria for 2014. We have many other

glass and coating options to choose from, including



-240, LoE


-366, spandrel, tempered, laminated,

tinted, patterned, and decorative glass.

Preserve Film to Protect Glass

We also offer the option of Preserve, a protective film applied to both

the interior and exterior of insulating glass units. This film not only

protects the glass from scratches during transit and construction, but

also reduces the time involved in jobsite cleanup.
