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.

Glazing Bead

Standard - Beveled Glazing Beads

Beveled glazing beads help create the traditional look of wood windows

Option - Square Glazing Beads

Square glazing beads provide a crisp, clean appearance often seen in Craftsman or contemporary design.

Divided Lites

Option - 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

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.

FSC Certification

Option - FSC Certified Wood

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.
