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
-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.
