The manufacturer launched its Ultra Series tilt/turn windows at IBS. Combinomg an American flush-to-frame design with European functionality, the dual-action product can swing in for access and easy cleaning, or tilt in like a hopper for ventilitation, all with the simple turn of a handle, the supplier notes. At the show, Kolbe showed four Ultra tilt-turn units mulled together into an impressive 108-by-94-inch display. Black hardware and a recycled aluminum clad exterior painted in a Truffle color, enhance the European-inspired style. The tilt/turn line features energy-efficient, double pane, insulating glass with LoE2-270 coating, which is standard on most Kolbe products. On the interior, choices include an engineered, laminated veneer bamboo product, as well as a wide range of wood species, including those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
The TerraSpan 90-degree corner door unit can be produced in a wide range of configurations, with panels stacking or pocketing into the wall. On display at IBS, the door featured panels more than 9 feet tall, with the lift and slide door panels on the right side of the corner unit spanning 12 feet and the panels on the left side stretching more than 21 feet. The doors were constructed with an alder wood species with a rich Coffee Bean stain, square glazing bead, and rustic umber hardware. As part of the Ultra Series product line, the doors' exteriors are clad in low-maintenance, extruded aluminum that contains recycled content.

The manufacturer is launching a range of factory-applied stain finishes. as well as a factory-applied clear finish on its wood and clad wood windows and doors, at IBS this year. These new factory interior finishes join an existing option for a factory-applied painted interior finish. The new stains are applied using a multi-step process that takes place before the window or door is assembled. Each individual piece of wood is sanded, conditioned and stained, the manufacturer explains. Then the finished pieces are clear-coated, sanded a second time and clear-coated a second time, providing an ideal finish. Stain options include Honey, Wheat, Hazelnut, Cabernet, Espresso and Leather, in addition to the option for a clear coat. The factory-applied interior stain and clear finishes are available on pine, white oak, cherry, Douglas fir, cedro macho, mahogany and vertical grain Douglas fir.
A new square sticking interior profile option from Marvin is designed to meet the demand for clean, contemporary design. A clean, squared-off transition is a favorite look these days among many homeowners and designers, the manufacturer notes. The simple interior sightlines produced by square sticking offer a beautiful viewing frame–whether a project features the large expanses of glass and minimal detailing used in contemporary design, or employs the streamlined ornamentation of the Arts & Crafts style. With square sticking available on nearly all Marvin products, homeowners and designers can be sure of design continuity with any existing windows and doors. Square sticking is also available on simulated divided lite bars.

The series is available in each of Lemieux's 10,000+ design options, including 4 foot maximum widths and 8 foot heights heights, with available matching exterior jambs, brickmoulding and T-astragals..

Kits, including a set for inside and outside the door, are available in smooth or textured in white, almond and mahogany, with standard and Prairie configurations. The SDLs can be painted or stained and are applied with a strong, weather-resistant adhesive tape.

A marker board activity panel on the opposite side is a framed sheet of clear glass with a removable white deco board that can be personalized as a display and personal expression venue or as a planning and communication center. Homeowners can personalize the deco board with fabric, photographs, calendars or other materials, and write messages directly on the glass marker board using dry-erase markers. The removable activity panel allows homeowners to change the deco board as often or as seldom as desired. Homeowners may also choose an optional magnetic chalkboard activity panel, on which they can write notes and attach items with magnets.

The Inglenook style, pictured left, offers a prominent, geometric design featuring clear soft wave and micro-iced granite glass with clear bevels and ruby red floral accents. Inglenook features patina caming. The new Grace style uses a combination of granite, micro-granite, micro-cubed and clear bevels. The flowing center pattern includes soft, delicate edges that highlight the elegant structure of the glass panel. The patterns are available with nickel caming.
Your Door Stylizer allows homeowners to visualize how various ODL doorlite options will look in their home entryways. Users simply upload their home photos (or choose from pre-loaded sample home photos) and then customize their entryway with the online tool by choosing among an array of doorglite options and shapes. Their doorglass selections instantly appear in the image as part of the homeowner’s entryway, the supplier explains. After the final entryway image has been created, users can share the project via email or social media. They also have the option to save the image to an online account or print it for later reference. The printed project summary can then be taken to the point of purchase for ordering or further exploration.

The manufacturer of custom window and door systems for the luxury market is featuring its brand new S-60 Thermally Broken Bi-Folding Door, S.94 Wall System and TS.677 Window at IBS. Complementing its existing thermally-broken pivot doors and lift & slide systems, the new lines enables Panda Windows & Doors to serve as a one-stop shop for all a project's needs. Designed for improved weather performance while maintaining high resistance to the elements and structurally strength, the thermally-broken systems feature a polyamide iso-bar as the joining material used inside their thick extruded aluminum frames to decrease thermal conductivity. The new bi-fold doors have achieved NFRC-certified 0.26 U-value and 0.18 SHGC ratings, the company reports.
Panda is also introducing its new line of Operable Wall Systems, which are multiple panel door systems that operate along a single recessed channel track system.
