Glass Terminology (expand for details -->)
Double Pane Insulating Glass with LoE²-270

  • Standard in most Kolbe windows and doors
  • Achieves energy efficiency across the various climate zones in the U.S.
  1. Double pane insulating glass
  2. LoE²-270 (other LoE coatings avaialble)
  3. Argon gas (for exceptions, see Glass Terminology)
  4. Thermo-Edge, stainless steel spacer bars

Triple Pane Insulating Glass with LoE Coatings

Triple pane glass is an option on many Kolbe windows and doors. It provides a greater energy performing window that keeps indoor air warm and comfortable, prevents heat loss and lowers heating bills. It is available with a variety of LoE coatings that best suit your needs.

  1. Triple pane insulating glass
  2. LoE²-270 (other LoE coatings avaialble)
  3. Argon gas (for exceptions, see Glass Terminology)
  4. Thermo-Edge, stainless steel spacer bars
  5. LoE-180

Helps meet or exceed ENERGY STAR criteria for climate zones in both the U.S. & Canada.

NOTE: Size limitations apply. Not available with laminated glass panes. The only obscure glass patterns available are Pattern 62 and Glue Chip.

ThermaPlus

ThermaPlus is an optional, additional interior coating applied to help meet the strictest energy requirements and provide protection against heat loss and UV damage.

  1. Double pane insulating glass
  2. LoE²-270 (other LoE coatings available)
  3. Argon gas (for exceptions, see Glass Terminology)
  4. ThermaPlus coating on indoor surface of the glass
  1. Thermo-Edge, stainless steel spacer bars

Laminated Glass

The benefits of choosing laminated glass include safety, security, sound control and the ultimate in UV blockage.

  1. Double pane insulating glass
  2. LoE coating options
  3. Argon gas (for exceptions, see Glass Terminology)
  4. Thermo-Edge, stainless steel spacer bars
  5. Laminated glass - two pieces of glass fused together with a plastic interlayer

NOTE: Either one or both pane(s) may be laminated. If products must meet specific impact or design pressure ratings, they may or may not incorporate laminated glass, and may require construction and structural modifications as well.

Tempered Glass

Tempered glass is standard in doors for safety and available in windows to meet specific building codes. If broken, tempered glass shatters into small fragments rather than large, sharp shards.

Finely Crafted Glass

Finely crafted glass is a decorative glass option that can include a variety of caming options, as well as colored glass, patterned glass and more.

NOTE: Not available with LoE coatings, argon gas or Thermo-Edge spacer bars
 

Tinted, Colored or Patterned Glass

Tints, color and/or patterns on glass can provide shading, privacy or visual interest.

Variety of attractive patterns:

  • Pattern 62
  • Glue Chip
  • Rain
  • Frosted Matte
  • Aquatex
  • Industrex
  • Reeded (vertical)
  • Reeded (horizontal)

NOTES: Other patterns may be available by special order. Rain is not available with PDL bars on the obscure glass surface. Ratings for products with obscured or wired glass and/or stained glass shall be deemed to be equivalent to the ratings for clear glass (NFRC 200 Section 4.5.G).

Neat Glass

You may request Neat® glass, which 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 exterior glass surface ultra smooth, so the water "sheets off" more readily than it would on uncoated glass, allowing you to spend less time cleaning.

*Except units with specialty glass on surface #1 or #2

Preserve Protective Film

Preserve is an optional, protective film that protects the glass from scratches during transit and construction, as well as reducing the time involved in job site clean-up.

NOTE: Not available on single-glazed units, units with true divided lites or other small insulating glass units, or some types of decorative glass. Contact your local Kolbe dealer for more information.

Divided Lites

The PDL System for Latitude Series Vinyl Products

The Performance Divided Lite (PDL) system uses a single insulating glass unit, which offers much better U-factors than true divided lite units. This is due to the large, unobstructed thermal break created by airflow within the insulating glass unit.

Construction

  • Beveled bars are adhered to the exterior and interior of the insulating glass unit
  • Champagne-colored bars are held within the insulating glass unit

PDL bars

  • Exterior & interior bars are finished to match the exterior or interior of the window or door unit
  • Optional bar widths: 7/8", 1-1/8", 1-3/4" and 2-1/4"

NOTE: PDL is not available for single hungs, single sliders, or picture slider windows. PDL is not available for Latitude Series products with triple pane insulating glass units.

Grilles-in-the-Airspace (GIA) for Vinyl Products

  • Achieves a style similar to true divided lites
  • Aluminum bars are sealed within the "airspace" of insulating glass units*
  • Easy to clean, with no obstruction on the interior or exterior of the glass unit
  • The bars allow air-flow throughout the insulating glass unit, creating an unobstructed thermal break, maintaining an energy efficiency not possible with true divided lites
  1. Contoured, aluminum bars (finishes below)
  2. Flat, aluminum bars (finishes below)
  3. "Pencil-shaped" brass bars
  4. "Pencil-shaped" pewter bars

  • Diamond patterns are not available

*For triple pane units, the bars are held within the exterior airspace.GIA are not available on Latitude Series units with triple pane glass or Windquest EP doors.

Performance Data

Product Performance Data

  • Air, Water & Structural Test Reports Manual - Includes test data for both wood & vinyl windows and doors. Includes DP ratings; air and water infiltration test results (psf), and structural test results (psf), Hallmark certification numbers, TDI approval information, FL approval information, HVHZ approval information, and Dade County Notice of Acceptance. Products approved for impact performance are noted with the zone of approval.
  • Acoustic Performance Data - Test data for sound transmission loss for wood and vinyl products.

Energy Data

Casement Energy Notes:

Energy data for French casements is the same as for casements of the same operation/model type.

Energy ratings for combination units depend upon the windows used to create the whole unit. Example: Casement picture window combination with two crank-out flankers & one matching center stationary studio/picture unit:

  • Find the energy data for the crank-out casements
  • Find the energy data for the center stationary unit
  • With those noted, the "worst-case scenario" data would be considered representative of the entire picture window combination
  • This applies to casement bays, bows, and other mulled units as well. Note that bow & bay flankers are only available with crank-out operation.

Energy data for transoms to match Ultra & Heritage Series push-out casements is not available at this time. Therefore, transom data results will only include transoms to match other casement types.

Energy data for picture units to match Heritage Series inswing casements is not available at this time. Therefore, picture unit data results will only include picture units to match other casement types.

Energy data for Latitude Series casement transoms is the same as for picture/studio units.

Energy data for Windquest Series casement transoms is the same as for picture/studio units.

(This is a general note applicable to casements of all series, and does not imply that every series includes every operation/model type mentioned.)
