Wood Types Architect Series Hung Window

Architect Series hung windows are the only Pella hung windows available in four different wood types to complement other wood design elements in your project. All wood types are treated with Pella's EnduraGuard® wood protection for beauty and performance ... year after year.

EnduraGuard wood protection offers advanced protection against the effects of moisture. Here's the difference:

  • Pella's EnduraGuard® protection formula has three active ingredients to provide advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. Plus an additional ingredient adds protection against termite damage.
  • EnduraGuard wood protection has a greater concentration of protective ingredients compared to major competitors using immersion treatments.1


1Based on the average measurement of retained active anti-fungal ingredients and performance solids (Borates and Trialkyl Nitrogen Oxides) on sashes and frames of major competitors using immersion treatment.

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.
