Colors for Aluminum Clad Wood Front Doors
Aluminum clad wood doors combine the benefits of two excellent materials into one high-quality product. With cozy, sturdy wood encased by durable exterior aluminum, alu clad wood offers customers excellent energy-efficiency and bespoke low-maintenance. In terms of design, the smooth, contemporary aluminum cladding exterior provides an equally perfect complement to the traditional wooden textures visible on the inside. This has both the building interior and facade benefit from an aesthetically pleasing upgrade.
The advantages adding an aluminum clad exterior to wood
Choosing new windows, patio doors or front doors during new-builds or renovations can be a tricky decision, involving numerous trade-offs. Vinyl is often the most affordable option, for instance, while aluminum is the toughest. Both require little maintenance. A wood door, on the other hand, offers bespoke patterns but requires more upkeep. The decision doesn't have to be one of either-or though.
As a composite combination, aluclad timber doors can provide an ideal middle ground by offering:
- An impressively elegant design
- Good thermal u-values
- Strong weather-resistance with minimal maintenance
- Durable protection
Neuffer's modern aluminum clad doors are constructed in Germany and can be customized with a wide range of options to ensure that each product meets the highest quality control standards as well as individual customer requirements.
Aluclad front doors are more than just the sum of two elements. Much expert experience and engineering are involved in their creation. Mounting an aluminum clad layer directly onto the wooden window frame would lead to issues with vapor diffusion, for example. As this could lead to a lack of contact between the metal shell and wooden interior body, the aluminum used in our products is anodized, powder-coated and treated with lacquers during manufacturing. This ensures a secure fit and enhances the door's durability and resistance to harsh weather conditions.
Customization options for aluminum clad doors
At Neuffer, customers have much design freedom to create a bespoke solutions, tailored to individual projects and style preferences. This begins with the choice of profile, whether a sliding patio door or custom French opening, and can continue to the glazing, color and hardware as well as possible window rails or side panel add-on elements – just get in touch with our team today to discuss the possibilities further and have your new product match your home's design.
High-performance for guaranteed durability
The anodized and powder-coated outer metal surface of an aluminum clad wood frame is impact-resistant and helps to protect the wood beneath. The cladding has also been designed with effective rainwater drainage in mind.
Unlike a pure wood exterior which requires regular oiling, an aluminium coating brings the additional advantage that dirt can be easily removed with a wet cloth. Neither the metal shell of alu clad doors', nor any built in glass panel windows require much maintenance. This ensures the long longevity of an aluclad wood door's performance and its sleek, resistant surface while saving customers time and money.
