Sun, wind, snow and rain – virtually nothing can stop JELD-WEN’s new Builders Clad-Wood Sliding Patio  Door from performing, even in the toughest conditions.

The ability to affordably protect against a wide variety of weather conditions makes this door system exceptional: To control sunlight, the doors offer an option of either blinds between the glass, or Low-E glass panels which are filled with argon and thermally sealed, to reduce fading of interior furnishings and  provide increased energy efficiency.

Builders Clad-Wood Sliding Patio Doors are currently available through The Design Center, a completely new retail concept in the Ballantyne Area outside of Charlotte offering JELD-WEN windows, doors, garage doors as well as professional installation services all in one showroom.

For maximum water- and rain-resistance, JELD-WEN uses a double punch of protection, including its proprietary solid pine AuraLast wood, which offers an industry-leading warranty against water decay and saturation. The doors also feature a fiberglass sill with corner key construction to create a tight seal and raise wood components above the water line to further prevent water absorption. Fiberglass provides an exceptional thermal barrier and the integrated concealed sill anchoring system reduces bowing.

Wind is no problem for JELD-WEN Clad-Wood Sliding Patio Doors. Manufactured with sweep system seals to prevent water from entering during heavy winds, these doors can meet a DP 50 code requirement.

For overall low-maintenance performance, the exterior frame and panel surfaces are completely covered with extruded aluminum cladding with integral nail fins. Cladding is available in six of JELD-WEN’s most popular colors, including Brilliant White, French Vanilla, Desert Sand, Hartford Green, Chestnut Bronze and Black.

All this toughness comes beautifully easy. JELD-WEN’s Builders Clad-Wood Sliding Patio Doors are built to be exceptionally smooth and simple to operate. Stainless steel rollers are adjustable for effortless gliding. The blinds between the glass are easy to raise, lower and tilt, with a special control that moves precisely with minimal manipulation.  As an added benefit, the door system can meet ENERGY STAR qualifications and is eligible for an energy tax credit.
