Aluminum is appreciated not just for its strength and weather resistance, but also for providing an attractive appearance with minimal upkeep. As the most popular material for new windows and doors today, vinyl features excellent insulation and low maintenance. Together, aluminum vinyl windows provide premium looks, energy-efficiency and durability while remaining affordable. In short, they offer great value at low prices.

Modern Door Systems for any Home

Patio doors need to meet the same basic requirements as a standard front door, with a few more based on location and use. Since lift and slide, bifold and tilt and slide models all feature large glass surfaces, the type of glazing installed in a patio door system is very important.

The three most important attributes of patio doors are thermal insulation, noise reduction and security. The robust construction material of aluclad vinyl models excels in each of these areas. In addition to these inherent attributes, such systems are also:

  • Easy to clean
  • Aesthetically customizable
  • Highly durable

The exterior aluminum shell of the synthetic frame does not only reliably resist forced entry attempts - inclement weather is also no problem for the robust metal cover. Moreover, the aluminum exterior requires very low maintenance.

Minimal Maintenance Required

Since all of our aluminum surfaces are anodized and thus corrosion-proof, there is virtually no need for regular upkeep. The same applies to the non-metal vinyl frame. Compared to wood, vinyl frames can remain in like-new condition for a long time with only minimal maintenance. Occasionally wiping down the frame and glass with a wet cloth is as difficult as it gets!

Your Choice of Colours

Aluminum vinyl frames can easily be tailored to your individual needs with the entire RAL colour scale at your disposal. For the aluminum, the chosen colour is then applied via powder coating while special foils are applied at the factory directly to the vinyl.

All colours are applied during manufacturing. Aluminum surfaces are all anodized and powder coated while special foils are applied to vinyl frames. Both provide additional resistance to scratches and increased weather resistance.

Reliable Burglary Protection

Given its synthetic multi-chamber frame, patio doors are already quite robust, easily resisting outside force and providing excellent protection against burglars. However, the additional exterior metal shell improves this even further.

High-performance Thermal Insulation thanks to Multi-Chamber Profiles

Patio doors are typically installed either as entrances to a conservatory or as pathways from the house into the garden. Because of this, their insulation ability is particularly important, especially when they feature very large glass surfaces. The combination of aluminum and vinyl offers ideal insulation properties, regardless of whether it is used to build bifold, tilt-and-slide, lift-and-slide or common sliding patio doors. Unlike solid timber, vinyl can be formed to create multiple interior chambers in the frame that bolster energy-efficiency. Further filling the chambers with our innovative precision high pressure foam takes it a step further with the ability to reach passive house values.
