Thermo-Edge Spacer

Kolbe’s standard glass offerings are complemented by a state-of–the-art, stainless steel spacer bar system on most

units. The advanced design of this system incorporates a stainless steel spacer with airtight bent corners and a dual-

seal construction of compressed polyisobutylene (PIB) and silicone. Desiccants are contained in the spacer to eliminate

the potential for moisture. These features combine to reduce the thermal

transmission through the edge seal, creating better energy performance and

increasing the roomside glass temperature while reducing the potential for

condensation at the sash to glass interface as compared to aluminum spacer

designs. Thermo-Edge spacers are one of the many quality details that define

Kolbe windows and doors. Thermo-Edge spacers are not available on very

small radius units, units with ½" insulated glass, with the champagne or dark

Bronze Anodized spacer option, units with “pencil” bar grilles-in-the-airspace,

or true divided lites. Available in stainless steel (standard) and black painted.

constructed frame, second-generation ThermaPlus

glass with LoE³-366 and a capillary/breather

tube within the insulating glass unit. Available on Crank-Out Casements and Awnings, Sterling

Double Hungs, and Studio/Picture, Transom and Direct Set units to match Crank-Out Casements

Finely Crafted Glass

(not available with argon gas)

Decorative glass created with a variety of caming options.


Standard in Kolbe doors to address safety concerns. Also available in window units to meet specific building codes.


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


Glazing utilized to withstand harsh environmental conditions, especially in coastal regions. Combined with an impact

product, such as K-Force


, this product offers the highest level of security.



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 exterior glass surface ultra smooth, so the water “sheets off” more readily than it would on

uncoated glass, allowing you to spend less time cleaning.

NOTE: Not all glass is available on all products. Please contact your Kolbe dealer for product specifics.

Inert gas dissipates over the life of the insulated glass unit. Kolbe does not warrant the amount or percentage of argon

present in insulating glass or a specific level of unit thermal efficiency at any time after manufacture. Visit the energy data
