Kolbe expanded its library of 2-D models and 3-D building information modeling (BIM) tools to include Ultra Series Beveled Direct Set windows.

Complementing contemporary design projects, these durable, aluminum clad windows are glazed to the interior and direct set in the heavy-duty extruded aluminum frame. The profile is integral to the frame, providing detail and strength.

The new Revit® and Google™ SketchUp models for Ultra Series Beveled Direct Set windows are located in Kolbe's online Architect Library. As part of Kolbe's growing collection of more than 1,000 window and door models, these new models can link with external data sources to instantly compile quantity takeoffs for residential and commercial building projects.

These easy-to-use models allow users to customize the width, height, exterior trim, casement profiles, and other features. A wide range of wood species is available including those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). FSC-certified options can be coupled with energy efficient glass choices.

Kolbe's Ultra Series Beveled Direct Set windows include LoE-270 insulating glass with argon gas. Due to the glass unit being set directly into the frame without a sash, these windows maximize the view and daylight. Plus, the detailed sticking allows for Kolbe's performance divided lite (PDL) options, grilles-in-the-airspace, or interior wood removable grilles.

The exterior aluminum clad frames contain recycled content, further supporting environmentally sensitive projects such as those pursuing recognition by ENERGY STAR®, Green Building Initiative's Green Globes™, and the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® Rating System™. The frames may be in a broad palette of distinctive colors aid in achieving eye-catching designs.
