Growing its collection of more than 3,000 window and door models and building information modeling (BIM) tools, Kolbe has added new Google(TM) SketchUp and Revit(R) 3-D models of its Ultra Series Folding Window.
Supporting architects in designing open spaces with expansive views, fresh air and natural light, the Folding Window models feature editable width, height, wall offset and number of panels. Up to eight panels may be accommodated on each side, spanning more than 50 feet with each panel as wide as 39-3/8 inches and as high as 72 inches. More than 30 exterior color choices are offered along with options for trim, mullions and grill configurations.
The Folding Window models complement Folding Door models to create large openings that invite the outdoors inside. These easy-to-use tools can link with external data sources to instantly compile quantity takeoffs.

In addition to SketchUp and Revit 3-D models, Kolbe’s website offers 2-D drawings; air, water, structural and thermal reports; warranties, installation and maintenance information; and online videos to demonstrate product operation and performance testing.
Kolbe products’ environmental attributes also support projects pursuing green goals including U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED(R) Rating Systems. A range of sustainably harvested wood species can be selected for the windows’ interior, such as those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council(TM) [FSC(R) license code FSC-C019541]. Kolbe’s Ultra Series products’ exteriors are clad in low-maintenance extruded aluminum with recycled content. The outer metal surfaces may be finished in environmentally friendly, durable coatings in a broad palette of colors.
