ABOUT JELD WEN
Consistently ranked as Oregon’s largest privately owned company, JELD-WEN began in 1960 as a small Oregon millwork plant with 15 employees and today has approximately 20,000 employees across more than 100 locations in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.
JELD-WEN’s secret to longer-lasting wood windows and doors is an exclusive manufacturing process that protects against wood rot, water saturation, and termites. This process is how Jeld Wen makes AuraLast Wood. Unlike dip-treated wood, which is common in the industry, JELD-WEN’s vacuum pressure process forces the protective ingredients all the way through to the core of the wood for virtually 100% penetration. They use a closed-loop, water-based system, which reduces volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) by 96% compared to the ordinary method of dip-treating wood in open vats of petroleum-based fluids. The intense, vacuum pressure process also results in using less preservative to achieve an even greater level of effectiveness. The reliability of AuraLast wood is only available at JELD-WEN.
