AluWood, our aluminium clad timber door features the same softwoods and hardwoods available for our timber windows clad externally with aluminium extruded from alloy EN AW-6063 in accordance with BS EN-755. The aluminium can be polyester powder coated to BS 6496 with the full range of RAL or BS colours or anodised to BS 3987.
Aluminium is virtually 100% recyclable and does not age in use. As the life expectancy is beyond 50 years, the use of aluminium is seen as a substantial sustainable product.
Timber finishes can last for many years now without further application and most high quality finishes now use water based paints and preservatives. Timber is also an excellent insulator and does not give off toxic fumes when burnt.
The combination of these two materials offers the best of both and it’s not surprising that composite windows are growing in popularity for both commercial and domestic use.
