Kolbe introduces new profile for Direct Set windows

Kolbe presents a new, beveled profile for its Ultra Series Direct Set casement and awning windows. 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.

"We are pleased to expand our Direct Set offering with this contemporary styling, while providing the expected performance and a complementary aesthetic to match our other Ultra Series products," says Kolbe's product and market analyst, Lance Premeau, LEED® Green Associate.

Emphasizing energy performance, the windows include LoE-270 insulating glass with argon gas. Glass also may be specified with other LoE coatings for improved thermal performance, laminated glass for impact resistance, patterned obscure glass for privacy or finely-crafted glass for visual interest.

Maximizing views and daylight, Direct Set windows' large, fixed units have architecturally-correct sticking to accept all sizes of Kolbe's performance divided lites (PDL), grilles-in-the-airspace, or interior wood removable grilles. On the interior, pine is the standard wood species. A wide range of wood species is available including those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

FSC-certified options can be coupled with energy-efficient glass choices to further support 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™. A broad palette of distinctive colors aid in achieving eye-catching designs. For the exterior frames, the clad aluminum, which contains recycled content, may be finished with a 70% fluoropolymer coating or custom anodize.
