Kolbe and LuxWall Partner to Offer Residential VIG

Kolbe LuxWall Enthermal ProductKolbe Windows & Doors announced their partnership with LuxWall Inc. to offer vacuum insulating glass as a new, high-efficiency glass option for designers, builders and homeowners. LuxWall’s Enthermal VIG product will be available as a glass option in select Kolbe products later this spring.

About LuxWall’s Enthermal

LuxWall’s VIG design—called Enthermal—dramatically reduces heat gain from the sun and heat loss from a warmed interior, decreasing energy consumption and costs. An additional benefit of Enthermal is the potential for improved acoustic performance when compared to standard glass products. When compared to similar high-efficiency glass technologies like triple-pane glass, Enthermal is significantly thinner and lighter. These characteristics are inspiring potential applications not only in new construction but also in residential renovation and historical retrofit projects. The Enthermal VIG product is the first to be made in America, according to company officials.

Kolbe and LuxWall’s response

“LuxWall has made tremendous strides in developing effective, reliable and aesthetically pleasing vacuum glass technology,” said Jeff DeLonay, Kolbe’s president. “We are honored to be collaborating with them at this critical point in their growth, and we are enthusiastic about providing this innovative option for our energy-conscious customers in the residential market.”

“Kolbe is the perfect partner to introduce a whole new level of glass performance to the North American market,” said LuxWall CEO Scott Thomsen. “Kolbe’s customers demand the best in quality and performance, and together we will bring them the best of both. We appreciate the support from the entire Kolbe team and look forward to a great launch.”
