Glass

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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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

The Performance Divided Lite (PDL) System

The performance divided lite (PDL) system uses double pane insulating glass units with bars adhered to the interior and exterior of the glass unit. Plus, spacer bars are held within the insulating glass unit. The visual continuity of the interior bars, spacer bars, and exterior bars creates the illusion of true divided lites.

The spacer bars allow air and/or argon gas to flow within the glass unit. Therefore, due to the large, unobstructed thermal break, the products are more energy efficient than products with true divided lites.

PDL for Deluxe Doors

Deluxe doors are available with 1" wide PDL bars with an ovolo-like profile. Spacer bars are a champagne color; bronze and mill finish spacer bars are optional. PDL is not available on Deluxe doors with decorative glass.

PDL for Standard Doors

Standard fiberglass doors are available with wood or aluminum PDL bars, depending on whether the panel is textured or smooth, whether the bars are on the interior or exterior surface, and whether they are finished, primed or unfinished. If the panel is factory-finished, the bars will be finished to complement the door panel.

PDL bars for Standard doors are available in widths of 5/8", 7/8", 1-1/8", 1-3/4", 2-1/4" and 4-1/2". The bars have a beveled profile; interior bars are available with an ovolo or square profile option. Spacer bars are a champagne color; bronze and mill finish spacer bars are optional. Custom PDL bar widths and profiles are available.

NOTE: Various circumstances – such as radius grille patterns – may require different PDL bar materials. PDL is not available on panels with blinds, venting panels, or panels with decorative glass.

Grilles-in-the-Airspace (GIA) for Standard Doors

Standard fiberglass doors are available with grilles-in-the-airspace (GIA). GIA offers the aesthetic of divided lites, without obstructing the interior or exterior glass surface, making the glass easy to clean. Aluminum bars are sealed within the insulating glass unit, allowing air and/or argon gas to flow within the glass unit. Bar types include:

  • 3/4" contoured bars
  • 5/8" flat bars
  • 5/16" pencil-shaped bars in brass or pewter

 

Finish Options:

  • White
     
  • Beige
     
  • Sand
     
  • Rustic
     
  • Hartford
    Green
  • Chutney
     
  • Light
    Wood
  • Dark
    Wood

Some may be 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

NOTE: GIA options for panels with blinds and venting panels are slightly different than what is outlined here; please follow the links at left to Panels with Blinds and Venting Panels for more details. Decorative glass is not available with GIA.
