Kolbe’s Custom, Oversized, Double Hung Windows Are Now Out
- Feb 11, 2010
Kolbe’s new range of Majesta wood windows are large and double hung. These made-to-order units will be available in sizes as large as 6×12-ft. with high-performance glass, as well as a selection of hardware, colors and finishes.
All Majesta double hung units are custom-made and the balances are matched to the size and weight of the sash. Stile and rail dimensions are proportional in size. Enhancing the traditional look, several types of divided lites are available, as are matching single hungs, radius and cottage style units.
A new, innovative lock complements Majesta’s hardware choices in brass, rustic umber and brushed nickel. The hardware, as standard, is installed at the center of the top rail of the top sash and center of the bottom rail on the bottom sash. This puts the bottom sash hardware within easy reach. The bottom sash features either a turn knob or a custodial lock.
Pine is the standard wood species. A wide range of optional wood species is available including those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. FSC-certified options can be coupled with energy-efficient glass choices, including triple glazed, to further support environmentally sensitive projects such as those pursuing recognition by ENERGY STAR, Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes, and the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System.
Contributing to energy-efficiency, the Majesta window offers a double row of heavy-duty weather stripping around all sides of the sash, plus a triple-glazed glass option. The windows feature numerous other options with exterior brickmould, casings and sill nosing. Kolbe’s Majesta double hung windows can be specified as all-wood with durable K-KRON finish or as low-maintenance aluminum-clad windows.
