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

Helps keep glass clean and debris-free during travel, installation
and field finishing. The Preserve film is applied to the interior
and exterior of the unit, causing any mess to stay on the film and
be removed easily once the job is completed.

Kolbe’s standard LoE
coating reduces energy transfer through the
insulating glass unit. The performance of LoE
glass is achieved
through a sputter-coating process. The coating achieves one of
the highest levels of energy performance possible. This process is
also environmentally sound and creates no emissions or residues.
In summer, LoE
glass allows visible sunlight in while blocking
96% of the sun’s infrared heat energy, while in winter, LoE
glass reflects roomside heat back into the room. The result is
significant savings in heating and cooling costs throughout
the year. Kolbe’s standard LoE
glass also selectively filters
out 86% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which provides
protection against the fading of furniture, fabrics and carpeting.

To further boost energy efficiency, Kolbe’s standard glass is filled with
argon gas. This naturally existing gas is colorless, odorless, non-toxic,
non-corrosive and non-flammable. Its thermal conductivity is 30%
lower than that of air. Together, the LoE
coating and argon gas
result in a 51% improvement in U-factors and a 104% improvement
in R-values as compared to air-filled insulating glass without LoE
What’s more, because units with argon are assembled in vacuum
chambers, they do not require unsightly plugs in the spacer bars.
To maintain the integrity of the product, units to be installed in or
shipped through high altitude areas may not include argon gas.

Kolbe’s standard glass is complemented by a state-of-the-art, stainless
steel spacer bar system on most units. These Thermo-Edge units
achieve low heat conductance throughout the edge seal design.
The primary seal of the dual-seal construction is compressed
polyisobutylene, while the secondary seal is silicone. In addition,
desiccants are enclosed within the stainless steel spacer to absorb
moisture and the spacer corners are bent to be air/gas tight. This
improves the overall U-factor of the window and can reduce
the potential for condensation by increasing the roomside glass
temperature at the frame/glass interface. Thermo-Edge stainless
steel spacers are one of the many quality details that define Kolbe
windows and doors.
