Fiberglass composite sliding patio doors
Pella’s patented fiberglass composite is called Duracast® , and it's the strongest, most durable material available in windows and patio doors.* This material can take most anything, including extreme weather, impacts and sea air.
*In testing performed in accordance with ASTM testing standards, Pella's Duracast has displayed superior performance in strength and ability to withstand extreme heat and cold.
When it comes to durability, fiberglass is king. And, fiberglass patio doors are resistant to even the most extreme heat and cold — and even damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays and seacoast environments. Similar to vinyl, fiberglass patio doors are easy to care for. They arrive with a long-lasting powder-coat finish that doesn’t need painting and stays looking great for years.
Fiberglass patio doors closely resemble the look of painted wood — they don’t have a shiny appearance. Available in White, Tan or Brown. White is a great choice for homes with today’s popular white painted woodwork. Or choose Tan or Brown to complement stained wood trim better. With their outstanding heat resistance, fiberglass patio doors can be manufactured in darker colors, giving you more design flexibility.
Offering the insulating qualities of wood, fiberglass patio doors are extremely energy-efficient and a great choice for all areas of the country. Cost-wise, fiberglass patio doors are a mid-range choice for homes in all price ranges.
- Homes where the look of painted wood is desired.
- When low-maintenance interiors and exteriors are important.

Fiberglass entry doors

Are fiberglass entry doors right for you?
Fiberglass entry doors are dent-resistant and won't rust or corrode. They're a great choice for busy families or anyone desiring outstanding performance with low-maintenance benefits.
Like wood doors, fiberglass entry doors have a high-definition panel profile that creates architectural interest. The material also allows for deep graining — so when painted or stained, it looks like real wood. In fact, Pella molds its fiberglass panels directly from wood-grained doors so you get the most authentic look. Smooth fiberglass, which looks great painted, is also available. Or choose one side grained and the other side smooth — a Pella exclusive!
Pella fiberglass entry doors have an energy-efficient, environmentally safe polystyrene core. This important feature creates a door with five times the insulating value of a standard wood door — so it helps conserve energy, reduce heating and cooling bills and keep your home more comfortable.
Cost-wise, fiberglass entry doors are a mid-range choice for homes in all price ranges.
When the look of wood is desired without the maintenance.
