Aluminum clad wood doors combine the advantages of two excellent materials into a piece of exquisite craftsmanship you would expect from high-end furniture or engineering products. With the natural insulation of solid wood and resilience of aluminum, aluclad wood offers homeowners excellent energy efficiency and security in a gorgeous bespoke package that requires little upkeep. Its clean, modern look on the exterior and authentic wood ambiance on the inside means both your interior and facade will get benefit from a luxurious upgrade.
The Advantages of Aluminum Clad Wood Frames
Anyone building or renovating a home is familiar with the difficult decisions and trade offs involved and the choice of window and door materials. Vinyl is the most affordable and aluminum is the toughest while both require little maintenance. Wood offers unparalleled beauty but requires regular upkeep that you may prefer to avoid. All three offer good insulation values. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be an either-or decision.
Aluclad wood entrance doors are the perfect solution. They combine wooden frames on the inside with an external metal shell to achieve the benefits of both with none of the disadvantages. They offer
- Unmatched elegance in a modern look
- Superior thermal performance
- Strong weather resistance with minimal upkeep
- Long life, durability security
Clad wood entry doors are more than just the sum of two materials. Their production also relies on a wealth of experience and countless scientific studies, which have led to a great level of technical refinement in the production process. For example, mounting metal cladding directly onto the frame would create problems with vapour diffusion. Therefore, the metal shell never directly contacts the wooden body. The aluminum profile itself is anodized, powder coated and treated with lightfast lacquers to guarantee its longevity even during extreme weather.
