JELD-WEN is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of reliable windows and doors.  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  AuraLast Wood is made. 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. JELD-WEN uses 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. This 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.
