Three JELD-WEN Window and Door Product Lines Earn 'Green Approved' Label from NAHB
December 21, 2010
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – JELD-WEN® Windows & Doors scored a triple-play of sustainable recognition recently when three of its product lines were labeled Green Approved by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center. That’s good news for builders seeking sustainable windows and doors for remodeling or new construction.
Green Approved products can be used by builders to earn points toward National Green Building Certification under the NAHB’s National Green Building Standard™.
“Sustainability has been a focus of our company’s culture since we were founded 50 years ago,” said Rob Worthington, marketing development director for JELD-WEN. “This latest approval from the NAHB means that architects and builders can be assured that our products will help them meet today’s leading green building standards and contribute benefits such as energy efficiency, recycled content and material conservation.”
JELD-WEN earned Green Approved designation for the following product lines:
- Custom Wood Windows
- Siteline EX Wood Windows
- Premium Vinyl Windows
- Builders Vinyl Windows
- Premium Atlantic Vinyl Windows
- Premium Vinyl Patio Doors
- Builders Vinyl Patio Doors
- Premium Atlantic Vinyl Patio Doors
- No Added Formaldehyde (NAF) Molded Interior Doors

GreenDoc Tool Helps Find LEED and Sustainable Window and Door Information
Researching information on NAHB Green Approved products and a variety of other environmental aspects is easy thanks to a new JELD-WEN online tool called GreenDoc. Available on the recently redesigned www.jeld-wen.com, GreenDoc allows architects and builders to evaluate the company’s products against any of the major green building rating systems such as LEED, National Green Building Standard, Green Globes and others. GreenDoc performs the necessary product calculations required by these programs to determine exactly how selected JELD-WEN products contribute to certification. Then, GreenDoc generates clear, specific documentation that these programs require for substantiation – a first for the industry.
Banner year for environmental leadership
The NAHB Green Approved announcement is the latest recognition of JELD-WEN’s sustainable leadership position. Early in 2010, the company earned its second ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year award.
