Press release date: October 12, 2006

(Wausau, Wis.) - Providing coastal communities with high-wind protection and architectural beauty, Kolbe announces its K-ForceŽ impact window and doors.

These windows and doors offer the strength and durability to withstand hurricane force winds and flying debris. Helping homeowners protect their properties and their possessions, Kolbe's K-Force impact products are tested to meet or exceed the strict building codes of the high wind zones extending from Texas' Gulf Coast to Maine's north Atlantic seaboard.

No unsightly brackets or visible rods detract from the products' appearance or hinder its smooth operation. No extra locks are required to ensure the protective performance. K-Force's impact laminated glass and specialized glazing retention system provide the necessary security. Additionally, the glass incorporates a LoE2 coating to reduce solar heat gain. This means homeowners also benefit from reduced air conditioning costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter. Furthermore, the laminated glass' sound transmittance levels allow for a quiet, comfortable interior.

Because each coastal neighborhood has a different aesthetic and every homeowner has a distinctive style, Kolbe's windows and doors offer a range of architectural options, sizes, shapes and configurations to fit their needs. Kolbe's Heritage Series wood and roll-formed clad products and Ultra Series exterior aluminum clad units can be specified with K-Force impact performance in casement, awning and double-hung windows, and sliding and swinging doors.
