Kolbe Ultra tilt-turn windows bring European functionality to the U.S.

Kolbe’s new Ultra Series tilt-turn window will be on display at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention & Design Exposition in booth #334.

This dual-action product can swing in for access and easy cleaning, or tilt in like a hopper for ventilation, 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 AIA 2013, visitors will see the 36-by-60-inch Ultra tilt-turn unit with black hardware and a aluminum clad exterior with a clear anodized finish that enhances the European-inspired style.Kolbe’s tilt-turn model at AIA also features energy-efficient, triple pane, insulating glass with LoE3-366 coating, which is an option on many 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 and 3-D Revit® building information models (BIM). In addition to BIM tools, the website includes air, water, structural and thermal reports; warranties; installation and maintenance information; and online videos to demonstrate product operation and performance testing.
