Jeld-Wen has earned the prestigious GREENGUARD Gold Certification from UL Environment, a division of Underwriters Laboratories, which provides an in-depth review and analysis of chemical emissions from Jeld-Wen’s products.

GREENGUARD Certified products aid in the creation of healthier indoor environments, and release fewer pollutants that can contribute to health issues including asthma and other respiratory issues. Upon completion of the review process, all doors manufactured with Jeld-Wen door skins will carry this certification.

“Our products play an important role in creating a sustainable home,” said Jim Parello, Vice President of Marketing for JELD-WEN. “That includes everything from reducing the amount of heat and energy that can escape a home during the winter to ensuring our products are constructed from materials that promote a healthy living environment for our customers.”

Many Jeld-Wen interior doors are constructed locally in the United States from recycled material, and the company maintains Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Chain of Custody certification to provide socially responsible options to customers. This process ensures that the wood used is obtained through appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management. Additionally, all Jeld-Wen interior doors are CARB Phase II compliant to further demonstrate JELD-WEN’s commitment to our customers.

Earning the GREENGUARD Gold Certification requires an in-depth analysis of each provided door. Using dynamic environmental chamber testing, products are tested for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde, as well as over 300 other VOCs with health-based limits. To remain certified, products undergo comprehensive certification testing on an annual basis, giving consumers peace of mind that they are selecting products that support better indoor environments.
