Kolbe introduces Ultra tilt-turn window, brings European functionality to the U.S.

Kolbe announces its new Ultra Series tilt-turn windows, ready for launch at the 2013 International Builders’ Show (IBS) in booth #C2607.

This dual-action product can swing in for access and easy cleaning, or tilt in like a hopper for ventilitation, all with the simple turn of a handle,” says Kolbe’s product and market manager, Lance Premeau, LEED® Green Associate. “These versatile tilt-turn windows combine American flush-to-frame design with European functionality.”At IBS, visitors will see four Ultra tilt-turn units mulled together into an impressive 108-by-94-inch display.Black hardware and a recycled aluminum clad exterior painted in a Truffle color, enhance the European-inspired style.

Kolbe’s tilt-turn model at IBS also features energy-efficient, double pane, insulating glass with LoE2-270 coating, which is standard on most Kolbe products. On the interior, an engineered, laminated veneer bamboo product (sourced from suppliers such as Lamboo®) extends the environmental statement. Bamboo is the most renewable material of its kind currently available for the building products industry.

A wide range of wood species also is available for Ultra Series tilt-turn windows, including those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC® license code FSC-C019541). FSC-certified options, recycled content and energy efficient glass choices further support projects’ green building goals, such as those pursuing recognition by ENERGY STAR®, Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes™, and the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating Systems. 

Kolbe’s Architect Library and online resources can help simplify the research and specifying process. For example, design teams can easily communicate and visually customize many Ultra Series product dimensions and functionality using Kolbe’s architectural drawings. In addition to architectural drawings, the website includes air, water, structural and thermal reports; warranties; installation and maintenance information; and online videos to demonstrate product operation and performance testing.
