Windquest Series Double Hung Studios

  Impact Performance (IP)

  • Meet IPD4 & HVHZ LMI*
  • White units meet Miami-Dade NOA*

High Performance (HP) Units

  • Meet up to PG85

*Please see the Air-Water-Structural Manual for details

Styles/Designs

Studio Unit Shapes

  • Studio units are stationary

Studio Units & Mulled Picture Windows

  • Double hung picture window combinations usually have operating double hungs on either side of a stationary studio unit
  • Transoms may be stacked above double hungs, studio units and/or mull configurations. For more information about transoms, see Double Hungs > Transom

Mullling Information

  • IP units - To meet impact certification requirements, IP units must be mulled with reinforced, structural spread mulls. They must be mulled in the field (i.e., on the job site).
  • HP units - To meet design pressure ratings, HP units must be mulled with reinforced, structural spread mulls. They may be mulled in the factory or in the field (i.e. on the job site).

Construction

  • Both sash & frame have fusion-welded corners for strong corner seals
  • Mulitple chambers within the uPVC extrusions provide strength & create a thermal barrier for superior insulating value; they also help reduce outside noise
  • Quality construction makes required maintenance minimal

For New Construction

  • 5-5/8" overall frame depth; 1-1/16" nailing fin setback; 4-9/16" interior jamb
  • Integral 1-3/16" nailing fin provides easier installation and helps seal the door opening

For Replacement

  • 5-5/8" overall frame depth; no nailing fin

  

Applications

For New Construction

  • 3-1/4" overall frame depth; 1-1/8" nailing fin setback; 2-1/8" interior jamb
  • Integral 1-1/8" nailing fin provides easier installation and helps seal the window opening

For Replacement

  • 3-1/4" overall frame depth; no nailing fin

Glass for Impact Performance (IP) Units

  1. Double pane insulating glass unit
  2. LoE²-270 on surface #3 or substitute a different LoE coating
  3. Argon gas
  4. Thermo-Edge stainless steel spacer bars
  5.  Impact Laminated Glass - two pieces of glass fused together with a plastic interlayer
  • Adds protection in severe weather
  • Helps prevent broken glass from causing injury
  • Helps to protect against intruders
  • Greater UV blockage prevents furniture and fabrics from fading
  • Reduces sound transmission

 Watch a video about:

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.

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

Performance Divided Lites (PDL)

Performance divided lites offer the appearance of true divided lites without using separate lites of glass. This achieves energy efficiency along with historical beauty. When PDL bars are requested:

  1. High-profile, beveled bars are adhered to the interior & exterior of a single insulating glass unit; bar widths include 7/8", 1-1/8", 1-3/4" and 2-1/4"
  2. Optionally, low-profile, beveled bars are adhered to the interior of a single insulating glass unit*, while high profile bars are adhered to the exterior; bar widths include 7/8" and 1-1/8"
  • The bars are finished to match the exterior or interior of the product
  • Champagne-colored spacer bars are positioned within the glass unit to align with the interior & exterior bars, further simulating the appearance of true divided lites
  • The spacer bars allow "air flow" throughout the unit, creating a large, unobstructed thermal break

*The optional low-profile interior bars match the standard low-profile interior PDL bars for active double hungs, single hungs & single sliders.

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.

**The wood "finishes" are wood appearance options and not real wood.

Glazing Bead

  • Interior glazed with a snap-in, friction fit bead to secure the glass
  • Beveled-type profile like traditional wood windows


Exterior Finish/Colors

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.
  • Windquest Acoustic Performance Data - Test data for sound transmission loss for wood and vinyl products.

Energy Data

Note:

Energy ratings for Windquest Series Single Hung Studio & Transom Units, Double Hung Studio & Transom Units, Radius Units, and Geometric Units are the same as for Windquest Series Casement Picture Units.

Energy ratings for combination units depend upon the windows used to create the whole unit. Example: Double hung picture window combination with operating flankers & a center stationary studio/picture unit:

  • Find the energy data for the double hungs
  • 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 all mulled units
