Collection

Create an opening that complements your design with the VistaLuxe® Collection from Kolbe. Collaboratively developed with architects for contemporary designs that utilize clean lines and multiple units to create large expanses of glass, the VistaLuxe Collection allows you to create an opening as unique as your project. An extruded aluminum exterior provides low-maintenance durability, while a wood interior proves modern design can be warm and organic. The VistaLuxe Collection offers: } Consistent profiles between multiple window and door types } Precise vertical and horizontal alignment on both the interior and the exterior } Glass that remains on the same plane across different products } A reduced visible frame for an increased viewing area Appealing to design-savvy homeowners, the VistaLuxe Collection gives architects the flexibility to harmoniously combine multiple units into unique, compatible configurations, while maintaining symmetry and sightlines. VistaLuxe Collection windows and doors are designed to be mulled together, combining function and style while maintaining a sleek aesthetic. An industry-leading frame-to-daylight-opening ratio lets the view take center stage through these sleek, sophisticated windows and doors. Kolbe is well-known for our custom capabilities and for our collaboration with many architects to build unique windows and doors. So, whether you’re envisioning VistaLuxe windows or doors in a special wood species, looking to create a custom color, or planning an unusual configuration, we will work with you to find the perfect solution for your needs.

VistaLuxe Styles To perfectly match your architectural design and performance requirements, products in the VistaLuxe collection are available in three different profile styles: Flush, Accent, and Accent Plus. Choose the style that best complements the design of your project’s aesthetic.

Flush

Flush style VistaLuxe windows and doors are created with the sash in the same plane as the frame. For an extremely streamlined look, choose Flush Style VistaLuxe products. This style is available with either double or triple pane glass. Flush style direct set shown at right.

Accent

To add depth and visual interest to your project, choose Accent style VistaLuxe products. The sash is recessed from the frame to create a shadow line, while still keeping glass in the same plane across other Accent style VistaLuxe windows and doors. Accent style direct set shown at right.

Accent Plus

For the increased energy efficiency of triple pane glass with added depth and visual interest, choose Accent Plus style VistaLuxe products. In the most extreme climates, this style allows homeowners to maintain the modern aesthetic while also maintaining comfortable interior temperatures.

Folding Doors Breathe in the fresh air, add architectural interest and merge outdoor and indoor space by using folding doors. Choose from a variety of operating styles: doors that swing out, fold to one side, or split and fold to either side. The large expanses of glass are the perfect addition to a project that uses VistaLuxe windows and doors – specify narrow 3" stiles for an even greater daylight opening.

Wood Species In addition to the standard pine, VistaLuxe windows and doors can be constructed of other optional wood species that enhance their look. Pine and other wood species are sourced from managed forests. FSC-certified wood species are also available for green building projects (FSCÂŽ license code FSC-C019541). Ask about the availability of additional wood species.

Interior Finish Options For units that are ready to install upon delivery, VistaLuxe windows and doors can be prefinished on the interior with one of the water-based stains or paints shown. Stained units are given two coats of satin finish clear sealer, with light sanding between coats. Custom stain and paint colors are also available. Factory applied interior finishes save you the hassle of clean up and disposal while helping reduce VOCs on the jobsite.

Printed images of wood species and stain options will vary from actual product colors. Selections should be made based on color samples available from your Kolbe dealer. Stain colors are shown on pine. A double coat clear finish is also offered. Since no two trees are identical, wood can be expected to differ both in color and graining. These factors will influence the stain’s final color.

Exterior Finish Options VistaLuxe products are finished with a 70% PVDF fluoropolymer coating, which is the best choice for durability and resistance to chemicals, abrasion, corrosion, and weathering. It carries up to a 30-year warranty, which proves Kolbe’s commitment to providing the very best. In addition to the standard colors, custom colors can be specified, as can 7 anodized aluminum finishes and 13 mica fluoropolymer finishes.

 rinted images of exterior finishes may vary slightly from actual colors. Selections P should be made based on actual color samples available from your Kolbe dealer. There is a “color range” with anodized colors. That is, there is an acceptable “light” to “dark” color range that can be experienced on any job. According to AAMA 611-98 specifications, Section 8.3, the range may be up to 5 Delta E’s. We can provide from our anodized vendor color samples of this color range if requested. The color range is due to numerous variables which include (but are not limited to) the shape of the parts, alloy variations and time in the anodizing process. This could mean that a sash part may appear slightly different in color than a frame part. This is/will be acceptable. Even the samples that may be provided may vary from the final product due to the variables. You must be aware of this as this will be considered acceptable.

Glass Options No matter where you live, Kolbe has the glass options to keep your home comfortable and meet the energy efficiency standards in your climate. As standard, VistaLuxe windows and doors are made with double pane, insulating LoE2-270 glass. LoE coated glass is designed to reflect indoor heat back into the room during winter and block 96% of the sun’s oppressive heat during the summer, cutting back on heating and cooling costs throughout the year. These glass units feature state-of-the-art Thermo-edge spacer bars, and are filled with argon gas*, which has a 30% lower thermal conductivity than air. Other options include:

Laminated IG

LoE³-366 LoE²-270 LoE²-240

UV BLOCKAGE

} L  oE 2-240 : A tinted glass recommended for warm climates that achieves solar control over

a wide range of the spectrum, while also helping to reduce glare.

99% 95% 86% 84%

} LoE3-366: Delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility, to reject the sun’s

heat without affecting the view.

} T  hermaPlus LoE: Helps to meet the strictest energy requirements; provides protection

against heat loss and UV damage.

} T  riple Pane: Triple pane glass helps provide ultimate energy performance in windows. We

construct triple pane windows with three panes of glass, argon gas, Thermo-Edge spacer bars, and the LoE coatings that best suit your climate’s needs.

NOTE: Tested units include argon. The laminate has 1/4" inner pane. Based on Lawrence Berkeley Lab (LBL) Window 5.2 © 2003 analysis for classical UV transmission data.

} Bronze or Gray Tinted: Provides shading to interiors. } Tempered: Safety standard in VistaLuxe doors. Essential to meet some building requirements.

} L  aminated: Provides excellent UV blockage, safety, security and sound control. } P  reserve: Helps keep glass clean and debris-free during travel, installation and field finishing. The Preserve film is applied to the interior and

exterior of the unit, causing any mess to stay on the film and be removed easily once the job is completed. * Argon gas may not be included with units to be installed in or shipped through high altitude areas. NOTE: Many other glass options standard to the industry are available; contact your local Kolbe dealer to customize a product to your unique specifications.

Divided Lite Options Further customize your VistaLuxe windows and doors with the addition of divided lites. VistaLuxe products are available with performance divided lites or grilles-in-the-airspace, and can be specified in a custom pattern to fit your project. Performance Divided Lites

Grilles-in-the-Airspace

Kolbe’s performance divided lite (PDL) glazing system gives the appearance of true divided lites without sacrificing energy efficiency. Extruded aluminum bars are adhered to the exterior and wood bars to the interior of the single lite of insulating glass. Spacer bars are installed within the insulating glass unit, helping create the illusion of true divided lites. VistaLuxe profile PDL bars are available in 7/8" or 1-1/8" bar widths, with custom widths available. The exterior finish of the aluminum bars will match the exterior finish on the unit.

Grilles-in-the-airspace are constructed with aluminum bars sealed between two panes of insulating glass, offering the look of divided panes while reducing cleaning time. For units with 7/8" insulating glass, flat, 3/4" wide bars are available in a number of colors, including wood faux finishes. Two-tone grilles are available with either light or dark wood faux finishes to the interior and White to the exterior.

An expert opinion:

“Timeless design, impeccable detailing, and exceptional materials are central to Janof Architecture’s imaginative and poetic architectural vision. Windows and doors are an essential part of that vision: creating walls of glass dissolves the boundary between nature and shelter, and floods our work with light. Kolbe windows and doors have always met our requirements for quality and detail; the VistaLuxe Collection is an exciting opportunity to expand our design vocabulary with a wood window that is specifically tailored to a clean, modern asethetic.” - Amy Janof, AIA; Principal, Janof Architecture
