Aluminum-Clad Wood

aluminum clad wood windows

Aluminum, a great shield that requires little to no maintenance, is used to clad the wood and protect it from the elements, giving your window and door the best of both worlds: looks and performance.

Our aluminum-clad wooden frame windows and doors exceed thermal and performance code of both Vancouver and BC. We use solid red oak for the inside frame and treat it with waterproof paint that gives it the finish you desire and the longevity it deserves. Aluminum is then annexed to the outside in a patented method that doesn’t allow both materials to touch, preventing air escape and moisture composition.

Product Profile

The room-facing part of the frame is made of American red oak solid wood that is built to last generations, with thicknesses that range between 68mm and 78mm, depending on the type of the frame. The warmth of natural wood is then complemented with waterproof German-made paint that adds an extra layer of protection and finesse. Choose between 16 standard colors, or pick any color of your choice and we will match it.

This is the external, thermally-broken and maintenance-free, aluminum cladding. Our aluminum profiles work hand in had with oak wood to provide a rock-solid frame that handles any weight of glass and stays in shape for generations. The aluminum is powder painted and treated to withstand external elements. The cladding also provides a full protection to the wood and the patented water drainage design makes sure that the wood has no exposure to rain.

Choose between double- and triple-glaze glass. Our IGUs (insulated glass units) are IGMAC and IGCC certified and adhere to the highest standards. Our glass thickness ranges between 5MM and 6MM and we only use tempered glass in every window or door. Our glass Uw (U-Value) stands at 0.72 W/m2K. With these specs, our glass provides a higher level of security, noise reduction and thermal values.

Thermally-broken Technoform GT Warm Spacer that provides better thermal values.

As an option, you may add a stainless steel insect screen that is knife-proof to your operable window or door.

Our windows and doors use the world’s best hinges, handles and accessories: Maco, Roto and G-U.

The way a window operates provides the right amount of light and air flow your room needs.
Take time to envision how you want your window to open and what it can help you achieve throughout your home.

Casement Window

Casement windows are hinged on the side and open like a door. Our casement windows feature both handle and roto-crank out style. Our double weather stripping achieves a strong envelope seal. They are great choices for an elegant traditional look.

Awning Windos

Awning windows are usually hinged from the top and open like, you’ve guessed it, an awning. They provide a great ventilation while preventing rain water from entering your home.

Tilt & Turn Window

Tilt and Turn windows are European-style windows that perform dual actions. They open just like a casement window but then they can also tilt to from the top just like an inverted awning, allowing for air to come to your home in a secure fashion.

Fixed Window

Picture windows (also called fixed windows) are windows that, you’ve guessed it, are fixed. Most windows comprise one or two fixed windows alongside an operable sash. Picture windows represent the highest level of thermal efficiency.

Sliding Window

You can choose to have both sashes or one sash slides while the other is fixed. Sliding windows are one of the earliest generations of windows and they fit any room style while avoiding swinging inside or outside.

Bay or Bow Window

These windows allow for an extra space within the room which can be decorated or furnished stylishly. The beautiful protrusion from outside also adds a character and class to your home.
