Style Option: Performance Divided Lite Bars with a Square Profile

Clean lines, flat contours, and the warmth of wood all contribute to the simple and modern appearance you get with Kolbe's interior square profiles, available for both glazing beads and performance divided lite (PDL) bars. Square profiles are perfect for achieving the look found in authentic Craftsman-style bungalows or for projects that require a more modern twist on traditional wood windows. It's just one more option that Kolbe offers to help you get the look you desire.

Square profiles may be specified for Kolbe's Ultra, Heritage and Classic Series wood windows and doors. Here's how the PDL system works:

  1. One continuous insulating glass (IG) unit, with bars adhered to the interior glass (surface 1), exterior glass (surface 4), and within the IG unit
  2. Square Profile PDL & Beads - click to enlargeInterior wood PDL bar, shown with square profile option
