Glass

+
Glass Terminology
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 - Triple Pane Insulating Glass

  1. Triple 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
  5. LoE-180

*Triple pane glass is only available for doors that are 2-1/4" thick. In doors, all panes are tempered for safety. Triple pane glass is not available with laminated glass panes. The only obscure glass patterns available in triple pane glass units are Pattern 62 and Glue Chip.

.

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.

Glazing Bead

Standard - Square Profile Glazing Beads & Stops

Square glazing beads and stops create the crisp, clean appearance so popular in contemporary design projects.

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

  • 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

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.

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.
