What Are Aluminium Clad Wood Sliding Patio Doors?

Aluminium Clad Wood Sliding Patio doors are one of the many different sliding door styles that you can choose for your patio. Being a very popular, traditional and elegant option, you may be familiar with wood and aluminium sliding patio doors but what exactly is an aluminium clad wood sliding patio door?

Aluminium clad wood sliding patio doors are the latest generation patio doors for the contemporary style home. Maximum day light entrance, panoramic views and a wall of sliding glass are just a few of the exclusive features of aluminium clad wood sliding doors that homeowners will experience.


The Key Features Of Aluminium Clad Wood Sliding Patio Doors Include:

  • Extruded aluminium casing on the exterior
  • A luscious bare wooden interior
  • Slim profiles combined with high performance
  • Standard 2-point locking system
  • Custom design options (which include multiple door panels)
  • Wood,hardware & glazing options
  • 19 clad colours to choose from
  • Available up to 480mm in width

The Benefits

1. Smooth Operation

One of the brilliant key features of aluminium clad wood sliding patio doors is the modernised operating system. A simple push or pull of a Marvin sliding patio door handle disengages either of our standard two-point or three point locking system. The door then gently lifts away from the frame which then allows the door to be moved into the desired position effortlessly.

2. Panoramic Views With Clear Sight Lines

You will always have a beautiful and clear view with sliding patio doors no matter if it’s open or closed. The large fixed panels from top to bottom offer clear sight lines, especially when your frames consist of aesthetically pleasing slim profiles.

Unlike bi-fold doors, the sliding patio door can be customised so that there are no interruptions with sight lines due to more frames.

3. Low Maintenance Meets Ultra-Durability

All aluminium cladding was not created equal. By adding Marvin’s ultra-durable extruded aluminium casing to the exterior of your sliding patio doors you can be assured that you will never have to worry about chalking, fading, pitting, corrosion or marring again.

Marvin’s extruded aluminium casing feature smooth, precise mitre joints, superior water seals and 19 standard clad colours or custom-blended to match any historic finish.

Marvin’s extremely tough surface coating is applied to an impact-resistant, extruded aluminium substrate which meets the highest industry standards.

4. Improved Energy Efficiency Means Lower Heating Bills

It is important to make sure that your aluminium clad wood sliding patio door provider meets at least the rigorous international CE certification standards.  Opting for a brand that you trust with the energy performance of your sliding patio doors is crucial when deciding on which brand to purchase from.

Marvin’s Warm Edge technology lowers U-values and improves air tightness through the spacer bars. Argon is filled between the insulating glass which can improve energy efficiency up to 30% rather than the standard alternative of air used by other manufacturers as it reduces the flow of cold air between the glass panes.

The spacer bar is constructed out of durable stainless steel which is bonded to the glass panes using polyurethane or silicone. This creates an airtight lock preventing the escape of argon gas or the entrance of unwanted moisture.

Marvin offers the warm-edge XL Edge™ spacer from Cardinal – the most durable spacer system on the market.

Marvin Windows & Doors uses Low Emissivity (Low E)  coatings, which are thin microscopic and transparent oxide layers, on the glazing that reduces heat loss while maintaining the entrance of natural light into your room.
