Kolbe Adds Arched-Top Option for Ultra Series Pocket Double Hung

Expanding Replacement Window Options

Wausau, Wis. (April 1, 2008) – Kolbe adds arched-topped, segment head windows to its selection of Ultra pocket double hung all-in-one replacement units that can be installed without having to remove existing trim and framework.

Simplifying window replacement without compromising quality or aesthetics, Kolbe’s Ultra pocket double hung, segment head windows can be installed from either the interior or exterior. Once the old sash are removed, the replacement unit is inserted into the opening and secured. The window’s 3.25-inch pocket jamb depth fits most standard applications.

Providing a clean, finished look, Ultra pocket double hung jambliners are concealed as paintable white PVC, or hidden from view by a wood-wrapped closure on the interior and an optional, extruded aluminum closure on the exterior. Made of a durable, 0.050-inch-thick extruded aluminum, the exterior frame and 1.75-inch-thick sash are coated with a 70% fluoropolymer finish in a broad palette of colors. Interiors may be requested with pre-finishing and specified in a variety of wood species.

Both upper and lower sash can be tilted in for easy cleaning and removal. They are fully weatherstripped for a tight seal and come standard with HºK LoE2-270 insulating glass. This and other high-performance glazing choices from Kolbe contribute to achieving green design and energy-efficient goals.

As with all of Kolbe’s windows and doors, Ultra pocket double hung, segment head windows are each made to meet customers’ exact size specifications, allowing for complete customization. Helping create a signature look, Kolbe offers three styles of divided lites -- PDLs (performance divided lites), wood removable grilles, and grilles-in-the-airspace. Optional sash lift handles complete the traditional design detailing and can be colored-matched to the windows’ sash locks.
