Add a scenic addition to your design project with Kolbe’s folding windows and folding doors. Available as Heritage Series
wood units, Ultra Series extruded aluminum clad units, or Vistaluxe
Complementary extruded aluminum clad units, these
made-to-order windows and doors are available in expansive sizes and open up rooms dramatically by extending the living
space to the outdoors. They are ideal for many applications, from new residential projects to commercial buildings.
Folding windows and folding doors are designed to provide not only attractive aesthetics, but also ease of operation and
superior quality. Folding windows & folding doors have exceptional protection against air, water and structural forces – folding
doors can meet a performance rating of DP-30 for standard units and DP-65 for High Performance units.* All folding window
and folding door units are set up in a test wall before shipment, ensuring proper fit, operation and margins. If there are
adjustments to be made on site, adjustment is easy and requires only an Allen wrench.
Attention to visual details gives folding windows and folding doors the same look as other Kolbe products, allowing for
consistency throughout an entire project. VistaLuxe complementary folding windows and doors with square sticking match
the clean crisp lines of other VistaLuxe Collection products. Many glass options, finish options and operational configurations
make the possibilities nearly endless – contact your local Kolbe dealer to learn more about what folding windows and folding
doors have to offer.
*Certain limitations and modifications apply. Contact your Kolbe dealer for more information.
