Wood Types Architect Series Contemporary Sliding Patio Door

Available in three different wood types to complement other wood design elements in your project. All wood types are treated with Pella's exclusive EnduraGuard® triple-wood protection so you can expect years of dependable performance.

  • Douglas Fir

  • Mahogany

  • Pine

Pella's EnduraGuard® wood protection formula has three active ingredients. This powerful combination, together with our immersion-treatment method, helps ensure strong protection on every exterior wood surface of our products. The result is advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay and stains from mold and mildew.

Thresholds

  • Mahogany units have the choice of mahogany or black threshold.
  • All other species have the choice of oak or black threshold.

Because we're always working to further refine our products and develop new ones, specifications may change without notice.

NOTE: Wood is a product of nature; grain pattern will be unique and may vary on each window or door. Actual finish colors may vary from those shown because of the unique nature of wood.
