Kolbe introduces Majesta custom, oversized, double hung windows

Kolbe presents its new, Majesta windows in response to customers’ desires for very large, beautifully designed, double hung, wood windows. These made-to-order units will be available in sizes as large as 6×12-feet with high-performance glass, as well as a selection of hardware, colors and finishes.

“Whether used in new construction or remodel/replacement, the Majesta double hung is the perfect choice for hotels, historic properties, converted warehouses and other commercial and mixed-use spaces,” says Cindy Bremer, Kolbe’s director of marketing.

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 weatherstripping 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. The extruded aluminum can be painted in a broad palette of colors, or finished in durable anodize with up to a 30-year warranty to meet AAMA 2605-05 specifications.
