Kolbe's New, Square Profiles of Performance Divided Lites

Square profiles offer clean lines and flat contours to match specific architectural styles

Wausau, Wis. (September 1, 2009) - Kolbe introduces square profiles to help achieve the look found in authentic Craftsman-style bungalows or for projects seeking a modern twist on traditional wood windows. Available for both glazing beads and performance divided lite (PDL) bars, these square profiles offer the clean lines, flat contours and warmth of wood to attain the contemporary, yet rustic architectural styles desired in today's market.

Kolbe's new square profiles may be specified for awning, casement, hung, sliding, radius, geometric, bow and bay windows, as well as on doors in its Classic, Heritage, Ultra and Magnum Series. The PDL bars match existing product widths for a consistent appearance throughout a room or the entire house. Square profile true divided lites (TDLs) are available on a custom basis.

Further distinguishing these windows, Kolbe' interior wood profiles are offered in wood species certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Combining FSC-certified options with energy-efficient glass choices further supports environmentally sensitive projects such as those pursuing recognition by ENERGY STAR®, Green Building Initiative's Green Globes™, National Association of Home Builders' Model Green Home Building Guidelines, and the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® Rating System for Homes™.
