Glass Terminology, Features & Benefits (expand for details -->)
Standard Double Pane Insulating Glass for Energy Efficiency across U.S. Climate Zones

  1. Double Pane Insulating Glass (standard)
  2. LoE²-270 or request a different LoE coating such as LoE²-240 or LoE³-366
  3. Argon Gas (standard)
  4. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars (standard)

ThermaPlus (option)

  1. Double Pane Insulating Glass
  2. LoE²-270 (or substitute a different LoE coating, such as LoE³-366 or LoE²-240)
  3. Argon Gas
  4. ThermaPlus Coating on indoor surface of the glass
  • Specially-designed, heat-activated coating augments the energy efficiency
  • Designed to meet increasingly stringent energy requirements for tax credit eligibility
  1. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars

Glass Option - For Safety, Security & Quiet

  1. Double Pane Insulating Glass
  2. LoE Coating Options
  3. Argon Gas
  4. Thermo-Edge, Stainless Steel Spacer Bars
  5. Laminated Glass - two pieces of glass fused together with a plastic interlayer
  • Helps prevent broken glass from causing injury
  • Helps to protect against intruders
  • Greater UV blockage prevents furniture and fabrics from fading
  • Reduces sound transmission

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.

Glass Option - Neat Glass

You may request Neat® glass on any product with double or triple pane glass and LoE coating(s)*. Here are the benefits:

  1. Rain sheets off more efficiently, so water spotting is reduced
  2. Dirt washes away in the rain more readily, so you spend less time cleaning
  3. Allows more daylight in than comparable competitive products

How does it work?

A titanium dioxide layer is applied, which reacts chemically with the sun's UV rays and causes organic materials to decompose. When it rains, the dirt rinses away. Plus smoother glass is cleaner glass. The sputter coating process makes the glass ultra smooth, so the water "sheets off" more readily than it would on uncoated glass, and it allows more visible light transmittance than any comparable competitive product.

*Except units with specialty glass on surface #1 or #2

Glass Option - Preserve Protective Film

  • Recommended for all windows & doors to protect the glass during shipping & installation
  • Film applied to the interior and exterior of insulating glass as they are assembled
  • After installation simply peel the film off the glass, and along goes job site dirt and debris, as well as paint or stain spatters. What's left is clean and clear – beautiful windows and doors.

Provides protection during:

  • Glazing and assembly of the windows and doors
  • Packaging, loading and shipping processes
  • Unloading, carried onto the job site, exposure to daily construction
  • Installation

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.

Glass Option - Privacy

Pattern 62 Glass

  • Obscures visibility for increased privacy
  • Pattern is within the insulating glass unit to make cleaning easy

Divided Lites

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

*Some intricate designs and coastal applications may require a composite material for the exterior PDL bars and are not coated with fluoropolymer finish.

PDL bars

  • Exterior & interior bars are finished to match the exterior or interior of the window or door unit
  • Optional bar widths: 5/8", 7/8", 1-1/8", 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 4-1/2" and custom
  • Interior bar profiles: beveled (standard), ovolo, and square

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, especially to curved bars.

Interior Removable Grilles for Garden-Aire Sliding Patio Doors

Interior removable wood grilles offer aesthetic flexibility, as well as easy cleaning. They are available only on wood products.

Construction & Benefits

  • Built with full surround frame and bars that interlock at the joints for stability
  • Applied to interior of door
  • Offer the ability to change styles by removing the grilles
  • Can easily be removed to clean the glass
  • Species: pine (standard), other wood species (option)

Bar Profiles & Widths

  • Interior bar profiles: beveled (standard), and ovolo (option)
  • Optional bar widths: 7/8", 1-1/8", and custom

Factory Finishes

Prefinishing available to match interior finish of entire unit (option)

NOTE: If ovolo bar profile is chosen, glazing beads will be ovolo to match. If a finish is requested, it will be applied to both sides of the grille; i.e., the sides seen from the interior and exterior will be finished the same. Primer is not available on grilles.

Grilles-in-the-Airspace (GIA) for Ultra, Heritage & Classic Series Products

  • Achieves a style similar to true divided lites
  • Easy to clean, with no obstruction on the interior or exterior of the glass unit
  • 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
  1. Contoured, aluminum bars (finishes below)
  2. Flat, aluminum bars (finishes below)
  3. "Pencil-shaped" brass bars
  4. "Pencil-shaped" pewter bars
