Wood-coloured aluminium doors

Can you have "wood without wood" on your dream aluminium entrance door?

Architecture loves natural wood for the fact that each project that is enriched with it gains style, beauty and elegance. However, it is demanding. Exceptional care is required.

Wood-like coating on the door

Wood has been appreciated and respected for generations, loved by architects. A symbol of longevity, strength, resilience, and at the same time a synonym of wisdom, peace, relief and good energy. It always has good associations, it always adapts perfectly to its surroundings. Our clients sometimes face the dilemma of whether to choose aluminium or wooden doors. Needless to say. Aluminum doors are highly resilient and durable. Unlike wooden ones, they do not deform, they retain all their parameters and visual qualities for a very long time. So why not combine the timelessness of wood with the modernity of aluminum and create the perfect wood-coloured aluminium doors?

Natural wooden look that does not require maintenance?

Today's technology allows us to use several techniques that offer us a wood-like coating on aluminium doors.

The first is foiling.

Wood-like foil imitates wood. It is usually chosen in projects, where windows/garage door or some other building elements have already been covered with it. Then we obtain a uniform colour of the woodwork. Wood-like veneer is a very strong and durable product printed with a 3D wood structure. Most of the colours have a wood structure that is palpable to the touch. The foil shows a very high resistance to the negative effects of weather conditions and detergents. In addition, it is very easy to clean, which makes it perfect as a finish for aluminium joinery.However, it has some limitations - in the case of a leaf covered with a wood-like foil, we cannot perform fashionable, modern milling on its surface. The dimension is also an obstacle. Each foil has a specific one that defines its usefulness in a given project. However, we have a whole range of alternative solutions. We present them when there are limitations - to ensure full satisfaction of our customer.

Powder coating in a wood-like colour.

Thanks to the unique system of paint coatings, we can conjure up a three-dimensional imitation of wood. This method allows us to obtain a range of the best colours, imitating any wood found in nature. Thus, we offer a wood effect, with perfectly placed grain and naturally distributed knots, in a comfortable, aesthetic version that does not require any additional maintenance. It looks great. The surface is smooth with a slight rough effect. It is a very resistant technique. This is by far the most frequently chosen form of wood imaging on aluminium doors.

HPL board - high pressure laminate

Means a laminate obtained under high pressure. It is an exclusive material, consisting of several layers, creating a coherent, durable and very resistant structure. Thanks to natural wooden veneers, HPL boards become an ideal solution for use on facades and entrance doors. They feel like a wooden surface, they are naturally matte and rough. They make an amazing effect. In addition, our HPL boards are PEFC certified, which confirms the acquisition of environmentally friendly raw materials.

Wood-like ceramics

It is the heaviest and by far the most durable material of all the above. It looks spectacular, especially when used in modern construction. More about ceramics/quartz sinters: here.

Cleaning wood-coloured aluminium doors

In the case of front doors, it is very important that they are functional and that their cleaning is easy and quick. Each of the above-mentioned cladding combines these advantages. Keeping wood-like coatings clean is easy and hassle-free. For everyday cleaning of standard dirt, a neutral washing detergent (e.g. dishwashing liquid) and a soft sponge will be the most suitable. When there is a need to clean more dirt, remove the contamination (such as dust, mud, sand) from the surface, perform a pre-wash as indicated above and use basic alcohol-based household detergents if necessary.After washing, rinse the surface and wipe it with a dry cloth.
