JELD-WEN’s F-2500 patio door system offers the manufacturer’s folding patio door operation type at an “approachable” price point, designed and built for the repair, remodel, and new home construction markets.
The two-panel door system features fiberglass construction with an aluminum-clad frame and a bottom-mounted hardware track. It launched in April 2019 at select retailers, available in primed white as a stock option. A wide release in all JELD-WEN finish colors is set for later this year.
“Typically, ‘retro’ patio doors are limited to hinged and sliding options. The F-2500 adds a more affordable option to a whole new operating type,” said Daniel Castillo, JELD-WEN senior vice president for doors. “It’s the only known fiberglass folding wall system designed and priced for a mass-market audience.” jeld-wen.com
