CHARLOTTE, N.C. – JELD-WEN’s impressive new entry system has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Beautiful sidelites have always been a popular feature to bring in more light and add impressive style and design to any entry. Now, JELD-WEN has incorporated tilt and turn functionality as an option, designed to provide all the benefits of sidelites and maintain security, but also to enhance airflow and ventilation.

JELD-WEN® Tilt & Turn sidelites can open by tilting four degrees in, like a hopper (hinged on the bottom to open inward at the top), or by turning, operating as an in-swing casement (hinged on the side to swing inward).

As part of JELD-WEN’s IWP® Custom line, Tilt & Turn sidelites are available in a wide variety of wood species, including JELD-WEN’s proprietary pine AuraLast® Wood, which protects against wood rot, termites and water saturation, and is back by a Lifetime Limited Warranty*.

JELD-WEN also offers a number of sizes, designs, hardware, glass and grille options to coordinate with its custom door styles. At IBS 2015, JELD-WEN is highlighting a Tilt & Turn sidelite design that features a unique beveled glass style with simulated divided lites. Tilt & Turn sidelites can be ordered primed or prefinished. Energy efficient, LoE-366 glass is also available.

“Just as impressive as the way these sidelites operate is the fact you can customize them for nearly any design, making them perfect for historic as well as contemporary architectural styles,” said Bob Merrill, JELD-WEN’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “From textured surfaces, to distressing and antiquing, the options are almost endless.”

The new Tilt & Turn sidelites for entry doors are a great complement to JELD-WEN’s Tilt & Turn windows. The combination allows builders, architects and homeowners to seamlessly coordinate window and door styles throughout any home.
