Glass Terminology
Double Pane Insulating Glass

  1. Double pane insulating glass (standard on Flush & 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; see Glass Terminology for exceptions)
  4. Thermo-edge, stainless steel spacer bars (standard)

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 (standard; see Glass Terminology for exceptions)
  4. Thermo-edge, stainless steel spacer bars
  5. LoE-180
  • Meets or exceeds ENERGY STAR criteria for USA & Canadian climate zones

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

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 - 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 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.

Option - 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

 

Finish Options

  • White
     
  • Beige

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

  • 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
  • The wood "finishes" are wood appearance options and not real wood

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

  • 70% PVDF fluoropolymer exterior finish with mica flakes
  • Meets performance requirements of AAMA 2605-13 – the most stringent testing procedures for organic coatings on aluminum extrusions
  • Resists chemicals, abrasion, corrosion, chalking and erosion

Option - 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.

Acoustic Performance Data

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
