Wood front entry doors can have unparallelled beauty but they are susceptible to harsh environments and natural weather conditions due to the nature of wood. Our doors are much more durable than most manufacturers because they are made using Modern European Technology, but for those who would like a door with no maintenance and excellent protection, we recommend our aluminum shield technology.
Our aluminum shield front doors fuse the elegance of pristine wood from inside of the house combined with the sleek durability of high quality metal from the exterior side of the door to make your front entrance more resistant to harsh weather conditions. So the outside is a sleek aluminum cladding surface and the inside is a beautifully crafted wood veneer. This differs from typical aluminum cladding because our aluminum “shield” never actually touches the wood since that would interfere with vapor diffusion.read more»
The door sandwich design includes stiles and rails made from solid European wood, thermal insulation board - and layers of aluminum sheets and plywood in various wood veneers including Mahogany wood. This design provides excellent thermal performance and overall product durability.
Whether it be rain, snow, or wind, the aluminum cladding will protect the door from any potential damage. Because these doors are so resistant, aluminum shield front doors require little maintenance compared to traditional wooden doors. We also combine this new solution to weather decay with modern euro technology which provides unmatched thermal performance and insulation. The layers of aluminum, plywood, and european technology all come together to create a beautiful door that will last a lifetime.
Practically, aluminum cladding is excellent and has superior performance compared to normal doors but it is so much more than just that. Through this unique solution to weather decay, our aluminum shield front doors forge their own unique look and texture that cannot be easily replicated. The aluminum shield finishes with colors and custom options. Aluminum shield front doors are perfect for transitional, modern, contemporary, and traditional homes.
At Doors For Builders, we work tirelessly to ensure that our custom doors achieve the exact specifications of our valued customers.
This featured custom project demonstrates just some of the unique capabilities of our team. This door is an Aluminum Clad Pivot Door that towers an impressive eight feet high and stretches an unprecedented five feet wide. The five foot width is especially impressive, as many companies do not have the ability to construct such an oversized door.
This width, however, is only possible in a pivot door. Luckily, unlike most pivot doors, our Pivot Door Collection is constructed in a way that avoids the common issues pivot doors face. Our pivot doors are built with double rabbeted jambs and a multi-point lock to resist warping and cracking, provide additional security, and improve insulation.
The aluminum clad exterior serves the dual purpose of protecting your entrance from harsh weather and looking beautiful. Combined with our unique Euro Technology, the aluminum clad exterior provides superior insulation and thermal performance.
Beyond performance, this featured door is absolutely stunning. The contrast between the metallic exterior and wooden interior serves as the perfect entrance to any modern home.
