For over 135 years, Ocean House resort hotel offered one of New England’s most spectacular ocean views. It required updates and two new wings were added. Structural integrity and hurricane-force protection were of the utmost importance, and ultimately Kolbe windows and doors were selected. Over 500 wood windows and 123 doors were installed, including double hungs, patio doors, and entrance doors. The original true divided lites were replicated with 5/8" wide performance divided lite bars. K-Force® impact upgrades did not detract from the historic styling, and options met ADA requirements.

In 2008, the eye of Hurricane Ike passed directly over the Turks & Caicos Sporting Club, a 1,100-acre private community. A few years earlier, Kolbe’s products had been installed in 14 exclusive properties, and met strict architectural requirements. Double hungs, casements, exterior doors and paneled French doors also met the aesthetic expectations. When Ike’s 140 mph winds battered the island, the K-Force® impact certified windows and doors helped weather the storm. In fact, Calico Jack’s Pavilion, a key gathering spot for residents and visitors, was up and running within days of the hurricane.

A design-build firm created an addition for Mt. Olive Lutheran Church with a 900-seat worship space, offices, a large lobby, and a kitchen preparation area with an adjacent multi-use room. While the original plans called for aluminum storefront products, the architect approved Kolbe’s Ultra Series products with wood interiors and extruded aluminum clad exteriors. The ogee direct set profiles met the aesthetic goals, and provide a great deal of daylight. Due to the expansive sizes of the mull units, many required steel supports, which Kolbe was able to provide.

Kolbe windows and doors were selected by the architect for an expansion project to this prestigious college preparatory academy in Georgia, originally founded in 1907. Offering a view that extends from floor to ceiling, this 750,000 square-foot complex combines dormitories, a dining room, administrative offices, and an infirmary. Another facility was built to house a fine arts center, and a modern library was built as well. Featuring over 100 Kolbe units, unique details were incorporated into the project design, and Kolbe’s custom capabilities helped bring the design to life.

The Orleans, a Gold Rush-era hotel, again takes its place as an iconic building in Old Sacramento. Monighandesign painstakingly recreated the three-story street-front to match the original 1865 architecture. Contributing to the replica, Kolbe provided ten-foot tall, wood, double doors that open onto the boardwalk and windows with PDL bars. Double hungs and casements were chosen for the two-story addition, which is concealed from direct view to preserve the historic façade. It reopened in 2008 as a mixed-use space including 24 lofts with ground-floor retail and a high-end restaurant.

Sutton Hall at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, an institute rich in tradition, was built in 1879. This unique building has served as the heart of this campus for over a century, and was placed on the list of National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Over the course of many decades, the elements had taken their toll on the beauty of Sutton Hall, but it was then restored. The project architect specified Kolbe products due to our vast array of custom features, which helped bring this historic building back to a state of traditional elegance.

Built in 1901, this brick structure housed the power supply for the Denver Tramway Company to generate electricity for the city’s trolley system. The power plant closed in the 1950’s, and the building subsequently served as a warehouse and later as a transportation museum. The museum relocated in 1969 and the building stood vacant for years. Great efforts were made to finally revitalize this historic site. Kolbe replicated all the windows for this project, many of them with custom grille patterns. Overall, 168 windows were replaced, and the building is now a vital commercial enterprise.

Built in 1898, Miller Hall is one of the oldest buildings at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. The passage of time had taken its toll on the nineteenth century building, and an extensive renovation was completed in 1994. The project architects specified Kolbe windows, due to our ability to replicate all the characteristics of the original arched windows, while also providing windows that offer far greater energy efficiency. Double hung replacement sash kits were used to restore many of the windows as well, allowing any specialty mouldings on the interior to remain unharmed.

Originally built in 1866 in an urban area of Denver, these buildings served as a brewery for over a century. Economic hardship forced the brewery to close and the buildings stood vacant for nearly two decades. In the 1990’s, the Tivoli site was revitalized and developed as a student union and retail center. Kolbe products were chosen for this massive renovation project due to our extensive custom capabilities. The detail, trim and moulding for each window was made to exactly match the profile of existing units, helping to replicate the original character of this historic landmark.

The Grand Theater, a landmark building in our hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, was built in 1927. It served initially as the venue for silent movies, later for motion pictures, and is now a performing arts center. Recently, Kolbe was called upon to replicate the double hung windows that had adorned the faรงade of this majestic building for many decades. Our Old World Classic double hungs were the perfect match, providing all the traditional details from the past, along with convenient operation and optimal energy efficiency.

As the northern gateway to Baltimore’s Oriole Park, it was imperative that a deteriorating Camden Station be restored to the dignified building it once was, and Kolbe windows were an element in rejuvenating this historic landmark. Kolbe was specified by the architect, due to our ability to provide window products that would meet not only the demands for historic authenticity, but also offer greater energy efficiency and resistance to water penetration. Gracing the main entrance are tall custom “bull’s eye” windows – paired arches topped by a circle with delicate true divided lite bars.

Double Hungs Beyond



Kolbe offers double hungs to meet every application, from old world aesthetics to massive sizes. Majesta and Sterling double hungs have concealed jamb liners, traditional design, and are available as either Heritage wood or Ultra extruded aluminum clad units.

 Majesta® Double Hung Majesta double hungs are designed for massive openings and can reach sizes of up to 6' x 12'. They offer exceptional performance ratings against air, water & structural forces. Units can meet a rating of CW-PG65 for units up to 56" x 96" and LC-PG65 for units up to 60" x 120". Despite the large sizes, operation is smooth. (top photo at left)

 Sterling Double Hung | U.S. P atent N o . 7,296,381 Sterling double hungs have patented features, such as multi-functional sash locks which allow sash to be unlocked, operated and tilted in from one location. These windows can meet a rating of LC-PG65 and an impact rating of IPD4. Plus, Ultra Sterling double hungs have attained HVHZ (High-Velocity Hurricane Zone) certification in Florida – where the wind speed criteria is 140+ mph! (middle photo at left)

 Old World Classic Heritage Series Old World Classics are old-style wood chain & pulley windows. They have brass pulley systems, solid brass chains, and alloyed weights. This allows incredibly easy operation, due to the proportionate balance between the sash and weights. Choose from single, double or triple hungs. Ogee lugs can be integrated into the top sash stiles for historic authenticity. (photo on page 23)

Ultra Ogee Direct Set The Ogee Direct Set window was designed with the same traditional details that adorned commercial storefronts of the past, but with all the latest technology to make it perfect for today’s restoration projects. The ogee profile is integrated directly into the heavy-duty extruded aluminum frame – adding a new dimension to a window that is built with great strength. Combining authentic historic charm with modern innovation, Ogee Direct Set units can be mulled to complement other Ultra Series windows and doors, or can be used as a stand-alone unit in a variety of shapes and sizes. (photo at left). Other profiles are available as well, ask your Kolbe dealer.

 Folding Door Folding doors are available in many configu­ rations, including panels folded to one side, split and folded to either side, floating, and incorporate access doors. Both Ultra and Heritage Series folding doors are available, so they will match the other windows and doors in your project. (photo at left)

K-Force® Impact Products Specially designed with great strength and durability to withstand hurricane force winds and flying debris, our impact products are designed to have the same beautiful appearance for which other Kolbe products are known. No unsightly brackets or visible rods holding the sash in place; no extra locks to fasten in order for the units to provide exceptional performance against the elements. K-Force impact products are tested extensively to meet or exceed the strict building codes of coastal regions. In fact, some Ultra casements with impact modifications have achieved design pressure ratings of up to 85 psf!

Exterior Brickmould & Casings Whether you choose wood, clad or vinyl products, we have many exterior brickmould, casing and nosing profiles. If your project demands a unique touch or historical accuracy, we can create custom profiles for most of our products. The trim options are color-matched to the windows as standard. But, for added interest, ask for a color combination between the trim, frames and sash. Brickmould, casing, and sill nosing are factory-applied as standard to Heritage Series products for convenience on the jobsite. For Ultra and Latitude Series products, brickmould may be ordered factory-applied or it may be field-applied by snapping it into the integral accessory grooves.

Fully-Aligned Sight Lines Most of Kolbe’s complementary units are sash set as standard. This means that, in most instances the sight lines of windows and doors will align with the transom or radius windows stacked above. Plus, if you choose one of our divided lite options, the bars will align between mulled and stacked units as well. No more “unpleasant surprises” when you stand back to admire the project you’ve worked so hard to complete. Kolbe also offers direct set transom and radius units.

Divided Lites and Glazing Beads Commercial projects often require very specific architectural details. Divided lites, grilles and glazing beads can help to successfully achieve your aesthetic goals. Choose a standard colonial pattern or replicate an existing pattern. We can even help create a completely unique pattern.  True divided lites are often necessary for projects that must meet rigid historic district regulations. They are available for most Heritage Series wood products in various widths.  Performance divided lites (PDL) are available for most of our products. Options include various widths, colors and profiles. Beveled profiles are standard, however ovolo and square bar profiles (see photo top right) are available for many products as well. Plus, wood glazing beads can match those PDL bar profiles. The great advantage of PDL is that it simulates a historic look while maintaining energy efficiency.

Glass for All Climates To achieve energy efficiency across climate zones, we use double pane insulating glass with LoE2-270 coating for most products. For many products we also offer triple pane insulating glass, which can achieve even better energy ratings. These options allow many of our products to meet or exceed energy efficiency standards that qualify for ENERGY STAR® in the USA and/or Canada. The reflective characteristics of LoE coating on our double pane insulating glass is less than that for either single pane or clear insulating glass, which is important for some historic projects. We have other glass and coating options to choose from as well, including LoE2­-240, LoE3-­­366, spandrel, tempered, laminated, tinted, patterned, and decorative glass.

Preserve Film to Protect Glass We also offer the option of Preserve, a protective film applied to both the interior and exterior of insulating glass units. This film not only protects the glass from scratches during transit and construction, but also reduces the time involved in jobsite cleanup. NOTE: LoE2, LoE2-240, LoE2-270, LoE3-366 and Preserve are trademarks of Cardinal IG.
