Pella Architect Series
Designed for durability and featuring exclusive wood protection, Architect Series hinged patio doors provide long-lasting beauty and performance. Pella’s exclusive EnduraGuard® wood protection is applied after the pieces have been cut and milled, but prior to final assembly, providing advanced protection against the elements. Our intentional jamb/sill design helps reduce the potential to absorb moisture and our three-way corner joint adds strength.
