Operating Your Windows & Doors Just Got Easier

Today's convenient, wireless technology is now available on select Kolbe® windows and doors. Electronic devices allow windows and doors to be automatically operated and/or unlocked with the touch of a button or flip of a switch.

Lift & Slide and Multi-Slide Doors

TerraSpan® lift & slide doors and multi-slide doors dramatically extend living space to the outdoors. They welcome generous amounts of daylight and scenic views. Automation devices enhance the convenience of these doors. Electronic operation kits are available for pocketing and stacking multi-slide doors, as well as lift & slide doors — including 90° corner units. Automation components will be supplied for installation on the job site.

Entrance Doors

Don't worry about forgetting your keys — the multi-point locks of your inswing and outswing entrance doors can be engaged or disengaged electronically. This option is available for select single-panel inswing and outswing doors up to 8 feet high, including Ultra Series entrance doors, Heritage Series entrance doors, and Heritage Series Craftsman doors with stiles wider than 3". It is also available on VistaLuxe® Collection entrance doors with 5" wide stiles.*

When this option is requested, the multi-point locking system will be factory-installed into the panel, with all associated wiring, electronic contacts between the panel and frame, and electronic control, which triggers the lock when the door closes. The actual interface with the system is to be supplied in the field by others, and may be any system from a key pad to a biometric reader. Any of the integration devices are compatible with the multi-point lock system due to its industry standard wiring connection.

Casements & Awnings

Motorized operators make opening and closing casement and awning** windows simple and effortless. Perfect for windows that may be hard to reach, motorized operators allow you to open and close with the push of a button or a wall switch – multiple units can even be operated from one control.

Optional rain sensors are available for awnings as well.

*The electronic lock is not available on double or French door configurations, and is not recommended for doors in coastal applications.

**Includes Ultra Series Crank-Out Casements & Crank-Out Awnings, Heritage Series Crank-Out Casements & Crank-Out Awnings, Latitude® Series Crank-Out Casements & Crank-Out Awnings, and Windquest® Series Crank-Out Casements & Crank-Out Awnings.

NOTE: Units with electronic operators have not been certified for AWS performance. Some of these options meet standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Certain product limitations and modifications may apply. Please contact your local Kolbe dealer for more information.
