  2. LoE²-270 or request a different LoE coating such as LoE²-240 or LoE³-366
  3. Argon Gas (standard)
  4. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars (standard)

ThermaPlus (option)

  1. Double Pane Insulating Glass
  2. LoE²-270 (or substitute a different LoE coating, such as LoE³-366 or LoE²-240)
  3. Argon Gas
  4. ThermaPlus Coating on indoor surface of the glass
  • Specially-designed, heat-activated coating augments the energy efficiency
  • Designed to meet increasingly stringent energy requirements for tax credit eligibility
  1. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars

Glass Option - For Safety, Security & Quiet

  1. Double Pane Insulating Glass
  2. LoE Coating Options
  3. Argon Gas
  4. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars
  5. Laminated Glass - two pieces of glass fused together with a plastic interlayer
  • Helps prevent broken glass from causing injury
  • Helps to protect against intruders
  • Greater UV blockage prevents furniture and fabrics from fading
  • Reduces sound transmission

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.

Glass Option - Impact Resistance

K-Force impact resistant Kolbe products

  • Laminated glass with impact resistance adds protection in severe weather
  • Specific impact certification levels may require other impact glass features plus product modifications

Glass Option - Neat Glass

You may request Neat® glass on any product with double or triple pane glass and LoE coating(s)*. Here are the benefits:

  1. Rain sheets off more efficiently, so water spotting is reduced
  2. Dirt washes away in the rain more readily, so you spend less time cleaning
  3. Allows more daylight in than comparable competitive products

How does it work?

A titanium dioxide layer is applied, which reacts chemically with the sun's UV rays and causes organic materials to decompose. When it rains, the dirt rinses away. Plus smoother glass is cleaner glass. The sputter coating process makes the glass ultra smooth, so the water "sheets off" more readily than it would on uncoated glass, and it allows more visible light transmittance than any comparable competitive product.

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

Glass Option - Preserve Protective Film

  • Recommended for all windows & doors to protect the glass during shipping & installation
  • Film applied to the interior and exterior of insulating glass as they are assembled
  • After installation simply peel the film off the glass, and along goes job site dirt and debris, as well as paint or stain spatters. What's left is clean and clear – beautiful windows and doors.

Provides protection during:

  • Glazing and assembly of the windows and doors
  • Packaging, loading and shipping processes
  • Unloading, carried onto the job site, exposure to daily construction
  • Installation

Divided Lites

The PDL System for Ultra, Heritage & Classic Series 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.

  1. Wood bars are adhered to the interior of the insulating glass unit*
  2. Aluminum, beveled-profile bars are adhered to the exterior*
  3. Champagne-colored bars are held within the insulating glass unit

*Some intricate designs and coastal applications may require a composite material for the exterior PDL bars and are not coated with fluoropolymer finish.

PDL bars

  • Exterior & interior bars are finished to match the exterior or interior of the window or door unit
  • Optional bar widths: 5/8", 7/8", 1-1/8", 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 4-1/2" and custom
  • Interior bar profiles: beveled (standard), ovolo, and square

NOTE: Double pane insulating glass have one bar within the insulating glass unit, as shown above. Triple pane insulating glass have two bars, one in each airspace. Limitations may apply, especially to curved bars.

Interior Removable Grilles for Ultra, Heritage & Classic Series Products

Interior removable wood grilles offer aesthetic flexibility, as well as easy cleaning. They are available only on wood products.

Construction & Benefits

  • Built with full surround frame and bars that interlock at the joints for stability
  • Applied to interior of window using exclusive hidden clip system

  • Optional bar widths: 7/8", 1-1/8", and custom

Factory Finishes

  • Prefinishing available to match interior finish of entire unit (option)
     

NOTE: If ovolo bar profile is chosen, glazing beads will be ovolo to match. If a finish is requested, it will be applied to both sides of the grille; i.e., the sides seen from the interior and exterior will be finished the same. Primer is not available on grilles.

Grilles-in-the-Airspace (GIA) for Ultra, Heritage & Classic Series Products

  • Achieves a style similar to true divided lites
  • Easy to clean, with no obstruction on the interior or exterior of the glass unit
  • Aluminum bars are sealed within the "airspace" of insulating glass units*
  • 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)

NOTES: Actual finish colors may vary from on-screen images. Please make selections using color samples from your local dealer. For custom colors, please provide a sample to your dealer.

Anodized Exterior Finish

Anodized finishes are created using an electrolyte process with oxide film to coat the aluminum cladding. This results in a reflective, metallic sheen.

  • Clear
  • Champagne
  • Light Bronze
  • Medium Bronze
  • Dark Bronze
  • Black
  • Auburn

NOTES: An acceptable light to dark color range is up to 5 Delta E’s, per AAMA 611-98 specifications, Section 8.3. This is due to variables which include (but are not limited to) part shapes, alloy variations and time in the anodizing process. This means that a sash part could appear slightly different in color than a frame part. This is considered acceptable. Samples of the color range are available upon request; even samples provided may vary from the final product due to these variables.

These are specialty colors which will incur an added charge and possible longer lead times. Actual finish colors may vary from on-screen images. Please make selections using color samples from your local dealer. For custom colors, please provide a sample to your dealer.

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.

FSC Certification

Kolbe® is proud to announce that we have been granted Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody Certification, as have many of our distributors.

The FSC is an international organization dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests. FSC certification ensures that the wood in products come from well-managed forests which meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. Chain-of-Custody is the path taken from the forest to the consumer – including each stage of transformation, manufacturing, storage and transport involving a change of ownership of the material or product.

Independent certification bodies assess chain of custody operations against FSC standards, review a company's qualifications, and award FSC certificates when operations are in full compliance. Certificates are valid for five years; however, according to FSC policy, the third party certification body must verify continued compliance. Kolbe has been awarded certification through Scientific Certification Systems, Inc. (SCS), which will conduct surveillance audits to reconfirm Kolbe's compliance on an annual basis.

Kolbe Products Available with FSC Certified Wood

FSC certified wood is an option on many Kolbe window and door products. Wood species available include alder, cherry, fir, mahogany, maple, oak, pine, walnut and other wood species. These products will be constructed using solid or edge-glued material, except for radius units. Note that some FSC-certified product may contain less than 1% non-FSC-certified wood components.

Standard and impact performance Kolbe products available with this option include:

  • VistaLuxe Collection windows and doors (wood interior / extruded aluminum exterior; contemporary design)
  • Ultra Series windows and doors (wood interior / extruded aluminum exterior)
  • Heritage Series windows and doors (wood interior and exterior, includes Craftsman doors and Old World Classic double hungs)

FSC certified products can contribute points toward certification for LEED, Green Globes, and other green building programs. Kolbe will be happy to help architects and builders demonstrate their commitment to the environment by offering FSC-certified wood. By relying on certified architects and builders, homeowners can ensure that their project is built true to green initiatives.
