Our stunning aluminum clad wood patio doors offer the combined benefits of wood and aluminum without having to choose one or the other. The time-tested performance of wood provides strong insulation values as well as the warmth and authentic look of wood on the interior of your home. Outside, an aluminum shell covers the wooden frame meaning little upkeep and no regular repainting required while creating a sleek, modern look. Moreover, each side is individually customizable with a variety of colours and finishes. Both materials feature excellent strength, durability and security standing up to the most challenging weather with ease.

The Advantages of Wood Aluminum Frames

Aluclad wood patio door systems are usually made of solid wood frames with large glass panes and an aluminum shell mounted to the exterior surface of the frame. This means that the wooden frame is visible on the interior while the exterior face is entirely covered by aluminum. The advantages of this configuration are:

  • Excellent thermal insulation compared to either single material alone
  • Top durability thanks to combining two highly resilient materials
  • Great torsional rigidity and warp-resistance when opening or closing
  • Very low maintenance requirements

Wood-aluminum combinations can be used to construct a wide variety of patio door types, from ordinary outswing doors to complex tilt-and-turn variants. There are no limits in terms of opening mechanism or style. 

Two Materials, Double the Security

One of the main advantages of wood-aluminum patio doors is security. Patio doors are a favorite target of burglars and a frequent weak point. Since modern patio doors are usually fitted with at least one layer of laminated safety glass, burglars will often try the frame instead. Luckily, the combination of solid wood and aluminum means they'll have to look elsewhere. 

With secure hardware installed, aluclad wood patio doors are able to resist a wide variety of different methods of intrusion. For example, the weight and strength of wood and aluminum makes trying lifting the door out of the frame a fool's errand. Of course, the exterior aluminum shell also provides superb protection against any attempt at breaking a section of the frame itself. And while nothing can guarantee 100% security, the considerable challenges posed by aluclad wood means thieves will move on to easier targets. After all, the longer the time a burglar needs, the greater the risk of being spotted by neighbours.

All aluminum cladding offered by Neuffer is anodized for excellent corrosion resistance.

An Aluclad Wood Door for any Patio

All of our patio doors are available in the wide range of RAL colours and aluminum cladding makes wooden doors even more flexible. Both the exterior cladding a well as the interior facing wood can be customized individually to include many natural finishes for the wood as well. Special decorative foils can also be chosen in woodgrain if you'd still prefer the door to have a uniform look  on both sides. Roller shutters and bug screens are also available with roller shutters offering both a huge upgrade in terms of practicality as well as in security. 

Regardless of which opening mechanism you choose, wood aluminum patio doors guarantee long life, long term reliability and premium aesthetics.
