Glass Options

Glass

Kolbe offers glazing options to capture optimum energy efficiency for

the geographic region in which you live. As standard, we use double

strength tempered glass in most units, with double-pane insulating

LoE

-270 glass. LoE is a “smart” coating that reduces energy transfer

through the insulating glass unit. LoE coated glass is also designed

to reflect room-side heat back into the room during winter months.

In summer, visible sunlight is allowed in while blocking 96% of the

sun’s infrared heat energy. The result is significant savings on heating

and cooling costs throughout the year. LoE coatings also reduce

the potential for condensation, as well as provide protection against

fading of furniture, fabrics and carpeting. Along with LoE coatings,

standard glass is filled with argon gas*, which has a 30% lower thermal

conductivity than that of air.

Kolbe offers the following glass options, as well as many specialized

options.

NOTE: *Argon gas may not be included with units to be installed in or shipped through high altitude areas.

LoE²-240

A tinted glass recommended for warm climates that achieves solar

control over a wide range of the spectrum, while also helping to reduce glare.

LoE³-366

Offers an ideal balance of solar control and high visibility by blocking 95% of UV rays while maintaining the interior

temperature.

ThermaPlus LoE

Helps to meet the strictest energy requirements; provides protection against heat loss and UV damage.

Preserve Film

A protective film that protects the glass surfaces from scratches during transit and

construction, as well as reducing the time involved in job site clean-up.

Tinted, Colored or Patterned

Provides shading, privacy or visual interest.

Laminated

Benefits include safety, security, sound control and provides the ultimate in UV blockage.

Neat

®

Harnesses the sun’s UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. A

special sputter-coating process makes the glass ultra smooth, so the water “sheets off” more readily than it

would on uncoated glass, allowing you to spend less time cleaning.
