Radius Shapes

  • Radius units are built with a profile to match casement windows
  • Standard radius windows include stationary quarter-circles, half-circles & segment head ellipticals
  • Operating radius windows are grouped with the product type that they complement, such as single hungs
  • Radius windows can be installed as stand-alone units

*Custom shapes include full circles, ovals, and other shapes may be available ; ask your dealer about other shapes.

Radius Mull Configurations

  • Radius windows  can be mulled with other units; see 2D Section Detail drawings for mull and stack details

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

Glass

Glass Terminology
Standard - Double Pane Glass

Double pane glass* achieves energy efficiency across various climate zones

  1. Double pane insulating glass unit
  2. LoE²-270 (for optional LoE coatings, see Glass Terminology)
  3. Argon gas (for exceptions, see Glass Terminology)
  4. Thermo-Edge, stainless steel spacer bars

*Double pane glass is standard for most Kolbe products. Size and other limitations may apply. In doors, both panes are tempered for safety. Windows may be ordered tempered as well, which may be required due to the glass size and/or to meet local building codes.

Option - Triple Pane Glass

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

*Size and other limitations may apply. Window glass may be tempered, as may be required for large glass sizes and/or to meet local building codes. Triple pane glass is not available with laminated glass panes. The only obscure glass patterns available in triple pane glass units are Pattern 62 and Glue Chip.

Option - ThermaPlus Coating

ThermaPlus is an optional interior coating that can be applied to help meet the strictest energy requirements, helping provide protection against heat loss and UV damage

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

Option - Laminated Glass

Laminated glass* in one or all panes adds safety, security, sound control, and the ultimate in UV blockage

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

*Limitations for using laminated glass may apply if products must meet specific impact or design pressure ratings; construction and structural modifications may be required to meet building codes.

Option - 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.

Examples include:

  1. Water glass
  2. Beveled glass
  3. Color glass in a custom design
  4. V-grooves
  5. Pink water glass
  6. Zinc caming
  7. Clear water glass
  8. Beveled glass
  9. Brass caming
  10. Baroque glass

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

Option - Tinted, Colored or Patterned Glass

Tints, colors and/or patterns in glass can provide shade, privacy or visual interest.

Kolbe offers a variety of attractive patterns:

  1. Pattern 62
  2. Glue Chip
  3. Rain
  4. Frosted Matte
  5. Aquatex
  6. Industrex
  7. Reeded (vertical)
  8. Reeded (horizontal)

NOTES: Other patterns may be available by special order. Rain glass is not available with PDL bars on the obscure glass surface. Ratings for products with obscure 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).

Option - Neat Glass

Neat® glass goes through a special sputter-coating process to make the exterior surface ultra smooth. Water "sheets off" more readily than it would on uncoated glass, helping rinse away dirt, and therefore requiring less cleaning time (view video).

NOTE: Not available on units with specialty glass on surface #1 or 2.

Option - Preserve Protective Film

Preserve™ is an optional, protective film that protects glass from scratches during transit and construction, as well as helping to reduce the time involved in job site clean-up (view video).

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

Option - 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

  • White
  • Beige
  • Sand
  • Rustic

NOTES: Ask your dealer about other options. Some units are available with:

  • Flat brass bars
  • Two-tones, i.e. one color or wood appearance option on the interior and a different one on the exterior
  • Custom patterns & bar "shapes" (limitations apply due to bending capabilities)
  • 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.
