Kolbe will be exhibiting at the International Builders Show in booth #C2608

Wausau, Wisconsin (Jan. 2015) – Kolbe's Old World Classic and Ultra Series Sterling triple hung windows expand the vertical space for greater views, increased daylight and natural airflow, while offering high performance and design flexibility. The windows' precise architectural details are customized to match both traditional and historic homes, including replacement units for some of the nation's oldest properties.

Inspired by all-wood windows of an earlier era, Kolbe's Old World Classic triple hung units feature a chain and pulley system to meet strict historic standards. Bridging the best of the past and the present, Kolbe's Old World Classic windows' modern performance delivers reliable, nearly effortless operation and dependable longevity.

Custom-built to the match each project in size and appearance, Old World Classic triple hung windows may be specified in numerous wood species, finish options and exterior wood trim choices. Curved glass or wood exterior decorative accessories, such as pediment heads, keystones, rosettes and corner blocks, complete the aesthetic.

Ultra Series Sterling triple hung windows present the warmth of wood on the interior with clad with low-maintenance aluminum and durable finishes on the exterior. These windows are engineered with smooth-operating, spring-loaded block and tackle balances or Class 5 balances to accommodate the largest sizes.

Wood covers conceal Ultra Series Sterling triple hung windows' interior jambliners, bringing the their appearance up to the level of fine furniture. Extruded aluminum trim and sill nosing offer architectural aesthetics similar to wood trim, and typically are finished to match the windows' frames and sash. For unique expressions, custom trim profiles may be requested and the trim, sill nosing, frames and sash may be finished in complementary or contrasting colors.

Both Old World Classic and Ultra Series Sterling triple hung windows may be requested with performance divided lites, interior removable grilles or grilles-in-the-airspace, finished to match inside and out. Glazing bead options accentuate the desired style: Beveled glazing beads help create the traditional look of wood windows. Ovolo glazing beads create a more unique profile.

Further defining a one-of-a-kind look, consider Kolbe's tinted, colored patterned or finely crafted glass. Beyond aesthetics, Kolbe supports energy efficiency across the various climate zones in the U.S. with glass options that include high performance, insulating glass with LoE coatings. Laminated glass may be specified for enhanced safety, security, sound control and UV control. Impact resistant glass further withstands harsh environmental conditions, especially in coastal regions.
