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

reduce glare.

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.

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

2

coating reduces energy transfer through the

insulating glass unit. The performance of LoE

2

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

2

glass allows visible sunlight in while blocking

96% of the sun’s infrared heat energy, while in winter, LoE

2

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

2

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

2

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

2

.

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.
