"The trend toward indoor and outdoor living has spurred interest in sliding and folding windows that bridge the gap between indoors and out," states Cindy Bremer, vice president of marketing at Kolbe Windows & Doors. "People want the option to include the outdoor environment as an extension of their living space, and these pass-through windows ease that transition."

Kolbe-2017-IBS-PassThrough-F826web.jpgKolbe's sliding window is available in both Ultra Series and VistaLuxe® complementary, while the folding window is offered in Ultra Series, Heritage Series and VistaLuxe complementary styles. These windows are perfect for residential applications and commercial projects requiring pass-through service for indoor and outdoor entertaining.

"When you're looking for an innovative addition to your design project, Kolbe has two great options for pass-through situations. Folding windows and quad sliding windows offer solutions for merging indoor and outdoor living spaces," explains Bremer.

Kolbe-2017-IBS-PassThrough-2016_12_05-007web.jpgExhibited in booth #W3870 is a four-wide Ultra Series folding window with Sapele interior wood species finished with Chestnut stain. Featuring a brilliant Mediterranean exterior, a recessed weep sill makes passage to an outdoor counter easy. A pleated, retractable screen is shown as an option to keep insects out and enjoy fresh air in any locale.

Also on display is a VistaLuxe complementary sliding window in a quad configuration. The fresh Emerald Isle exterior sets off the square interior and exterior details. A Spanish Cedar wood interior is finished with a clear coat, with a Matte Black positive action lock that engages automatically for convenient security. An exterior pull-down retractable screen is hidden from sight when not in use, while a low-profile sill and stiles with matching sightlines complete the sleek look.

"Kolbe's continuous innovation leads us to new solutions for homeowners, architects and builders seeking high-quality products with functional design," states Bremer. "Our pass-through windows provide a sophisticated solution to blend the inside and outside environments, expand your overall space and coordinate with any style from traditional to contemporary."
