Kolbe's Glass Options Ensure Clear View, Desired Protection

Wausau, Wis. -- Kolbe has announced that its LoE3-366 ("low E cubed 366") glass is now available as an option for its windows and doors. The specially formulated glass allows 66-percent visible light transmittance, minimizing exterior reflectance to avoid heavy bronze or smoke-colored tints that may darken a home's appearance and view, according to the company.

LoE3-366 glass is certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council and in compliance with ENERGY STARŪ guidelines. The company says it reduces unwanted solar heat in the warm months and offers superior insulating qualities in cooler months and blocks 95 percent of the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays to protect furniture, carpets, curtains, wall coverings and artwork from fading.

Each of Kolbe's glass options may be specified with an optional protective, removable film which remains on the glass from the fabrication floor, through shipment and installation, until construction clean up has been completed. When requested, this film is applied to both the interior and exterior surfaces of Kolbe's insulated glass units. Homeowners need not worry about dust, splatters, sticky residues or other distracting blemishes. Contractors no longer need to waste time applying and later removing protective coverings. This removable film contains no harmful chemicals or by-products, so it can be disposed of with normal construction site debris. Because the film is clear, contractors also avoid blocking the natural light needed to complete their tasks.
