Jeld-Wen Douglas Fir Option for its Custom Fiberglass Door Line

JELD-WEN, a leading manufacturer of windows and doors,recently added an exquisite door style to their repertoire.    JELD-WEN’s Aurora® Fiberglass door with its wood grain actually looks like a wood door but has all of a maintenance free door.  Unlike a wood door the aurora will not rot, warp, or swell.

Fiberglass will hold up to extreme exposure or harsh weather. It is a perfect option for homes that experience direct sunlight and moisture where wood doors may not be suitable.

It is nearly impossible to tell the difference between these doors and real wood doors, which has earned JELD-WEN numerous awards and recognition for product excellence.

“People shouldn’t be surprised if they can’t immediately spot the difference – even the experts have trouble telling them apart,” said Derek Brosterhous, product marketing manager for JELD-WEN. “What many people perceive to be wood doors are in fact our Aurora Fiberglass line. We take that as the ultimate compliment.”

The Aurora® Fiberglass door known for its straight, clean lines that work well with contemporary, traditional and even rustic styles, Douglas Fir has long been one of the most popular wood species for homeowners, builders and architects. Specific door designs include Classic, Craftsman, Estate and styles with glass insert and sidelights – all available in different system configurations. The new Douglas Fir species is available in 10 stain colors, and discerning homeowners can choose additional style elements including clavos and straps as decorative accents.

With the addition of Douglas Fir, the Aurora Fiberglass line is now offered five finishes, including Oak, Mahogany, Alder and paint – making it even more tricky to tell the difference between real wood.

As a wood species, Douglas Fir naturally yellows as it ages. JELD-WEN Aurora Fiberglass doors maintain color consistency, so the grain and stain stay true over time.
