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

  1. Double Pane Insulating Glass (standard on Flush and Accent Style products)
  2. LoE²-270 (standard) or substitute a different LoE coating such as LoE²-240 or LoE³-366 (option)
  3. Argon Gas (standard)
  4. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars (standard)

NOTE: Features and definitions are available above by expanding Glass Terminology, Features & Benefits

Triple Pane Insulating Glass

  1. Triple Pane Insulating Glass (standard for Accent Plus Style, optional for Flush Style products)
  2. LoE²-270 (or substitute a different LoE coating, such as LoE³-366 or LoE²-240)

  3. Argon Gas
  4. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars
  5. LoE-180
  • Meets or exceeds ENERGY STAR criteria for U.S. & Canada's climate zones

NOTE: Size limitations apply. Not available with laminated glass panes.

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.

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.

Watch a 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

The PDL System for VistaLuxe Collection Products

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

  1. Square-profile bars are adhered to the interior and exterior of the insulating glass unit
  2. Exterior & interior bars are finished to match the exterior or interior of the window or door unit.
  3. Bar widths include 7/8" and 1-1/8"
  4. Champagne-colored bars are held within the insulating glass unit

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.

Grilles-in-the-Airspace (GIA) for VistaLuxe Collection Products

 

  • Achieves a style similar to true divided lites
  • Easy to clean, with no obstruction on the interior or exterior of the glass unit
  • Flat, 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

  • Custom patterns & bar "shapes" (limitations apply due to bending capabilities)
  • Diamond patterns are not available
  • The wood "finishes" are wood appearance options and not real wood

*For triple pane units, the bars are held within the exterior airspace

NOTES: 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.

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.

FSC Certification

Kolbe® has 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.
