2016 Product News: New JELD-WEN® Aurora® Custom Fiberglass Doors Deliver Unmatched Versatility

Innovative design techniques and leading style options offer multitude
of choices

CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–From curb appeal to security to design, a home’s exterior doors play a
crucial role in defining the style and function of a living space.

For today’s homeowners, JELD-WEN® Aurora® custom
fiberglass doors offer a winning blend of elements, combining the look
and feel of a real wood door with an affordable price point and near
limitless design options.

Not satisfied to rest on the current collection of awards bestowed on
these doors over time, JELD-WEN product teams continue to develop
innovative enhancements to maintain the company’s position as a leader
within the industry. A number of these new options were on display at
this week’s International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

“These new doors incorporate the latest elements of design and in-home
innovation in order to provide homeowners, architects and builders with
stylish, affordable and smoothly functional products,” said Jim Parello,
Vice President of Marketing for JELD-WEN. “Regardless of whether a home
is contemporary, rustic or craftsman style, or whether it is a small
condo in an urban setting or a giant farmhouse in the country, we’re
committed to designing whole-home solutions for every living space.”

The Look and Feel of Wood

JELD-WEN Aurora custom fiberglass doors offer the look and feel of real
wood at a more affordable price point. This has never been more evident
than in the recent growth of rustic design as a highly desired exterior

Offered in five woodgrains as well as weathered woodgrain textures,
JELD-WEN Aurora custom fiberglass doors beautifully mimic the appearance
of traditional wood doors. Up to 10 stain finishes and a near endless
selection of paint options made possible by custom color matching ensure
that every door will blend perfectly with the look and feel of a

Near Limitless Design

In addition to serving as a gorgeous design piece for any living space,
exterior doors also fulfill a variety of functional purposes, including
improving privacy and security and offering a source of natural light.

The traditional wraparound system — surrounding a door with sidelites
and a transom — is an excellent way to enhance these attributes. In
homes where space may be tight, JELD-WEN Aurora custom fiberglass doors
present an affordable and adaptable alternative. Customers can
incorporate glass panes into the door itself that mimic the effect of
installing sidelites and a transom.

In addition to this wraparound look, these doors are available with a
wide variety of protective, textured, tinted and decorative glass
options in several designs.
