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
-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

A tinted glass recommended for warm climates that achieves solar
control over a wide range of the spectrum, while also helping to reduce glare.
Offers an ideal balance of solar control and high visibility by blocking 95% of UV rays while maintaining the interior
Helps to meet the strictest energy requirements; provides protection against heat loss and UV damage.
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.
Benefits include safety, security, sound control and provides the ultimate in UV blockage.
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.
