Client News: Kolbe expands products and options with VistaLuxe complementary sliding patio doors and Madison handle sets
Posted on October 18th, 2016 by Heather West
In an expansion of the award-winning VistaLuxe® Collection, Kolbe introduces a VistaLuxe complementary sliding patio door and contemporary Madison hardware. This makes it possible to integrate sliding patio doors on a project with VistaLuxe Collection windows, while maintaining a consistent contemporary aesthetic.
“At Kolbe, we’re always looking to understand the needs of architects, builders and homeowners,” says Cindy Bremer, Kolbe’s vice president of marketing. “Our new VistaLuxe complementary sliding patio door is one more way we offer solutions to the window and door market.”
VistaLuxe complementary sliding patio doors allow the view to take center stage, with 3-inch stiles and top rail and a 5-inch bottom rail. Two panel, three panel, and four panel configurations are available in sizes up to 16 feet wide by 8 feet high. Depending on the configuration, VistaLuxe complementary sliding patio doors can achieve ratings up to DP50. Square exterior sticking and interior glazing bead complete the contemporary aesthetic.
“The majority of the ‘contemporary’ products available from our competitors don’t have square exteriors and interiors,” states Bremer. “Architects know that these little details make all the difference, and it’s important to us that we provide the solutions they’re looking for.”
In addition to a new sliding patio door, Kolbe also introduces a new sliding patio handle set: the Madison. “We saw an opportunity to offer greater hardware choices for projects with a modern aesthetic,” says Bremer. “We developed this proprietary handle set to enhance the sleek aesthetic of our expansive opening products.”
Madison handle sets are available in seven finishes, with or without a key cylinder. In addition to VistaLuxe complementary sliding patio doors, Madison handle sets are available for Garden-Aire sliding patio doors and multi-slide doors.
