Aluminum Clad Wood Patio Doors
Durable, Low Maintenance and Great Looking
Aluclad Wood Systems
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.
