IBS 2013, Kolbe Booth #C2607; Distinctive Doors
Wausau, Wis. (Jan. 2013) – Illustrating its versatility, Kolbe's door products offer both traditional and contemporary styled door designs to create entrances that are as unique as the homeowners themselves.
"Distinctive style deserves distinctive windows and doors," says Cindy Bremer, Kolbe's vice president of marketing. "Whether looking for unique sizes, unusual shapes, rare wood species, colorful finishes, finely-crafted glass or universal design hardware, Kolbe's built-to-order options help make nearly every vision a reality."
Demonstrating the power of a strong impression, Kolbe's Ultra Series contemporary, inswing door is configured with asymmetrical panels that each contains four lites of frosted glass. The main door panel provides regular entry, and when desired, the smaller panel also operates for an expansive opening. The door's extruded aluminum exterior is boldly finished with the door panels in a custom red color, framing in Coal Black and the white oak wood interior in a custom Ebony stain. Satin Nickel, Dallas style hardware completes the striking look.
Highlighting the traditional appearance, Kolbe's all-wood Heritage Series exterior door communicates a classic, welcoming entrance flanked with sidelites. Crafted from Alder, the 2-1/4-inch-thick door panels are stained with a custom Brown Cherry. The matching sidelites feature a 3-1/2-inch flat casing with back band and insulated Renova glass. The elegant Emtek Charleston handle set punctuates a luxurious greeting.
"Beyond the eye-catching appearance and architectural detailing, Kolbe products are crafted with exceptional attention to quality. Our windows and doors are manufactured with high performance, reliable operation and a lasting impression in mind," notes Bremer.
Kolbe's Architect Library and online resources can help simplify the research and specifying process. For example, design teams can easily communicate and visually customize many door product dimensions and functionality using Kolbe's 3-D Revit® building information models (BIM). In addition to BIM tools, Kolbe's website offers 2-D drawings; air, water, structural and thermal reports; warranties, installation and maintenance information; and online videos to demonstrate product operation and performance testing.
