Clad refers to wood products with a thick layer of extruded aluminum applied to the surface which provides excellent protection from the elements while still offering the soft edges and warm feel on the interior which only wood can provide. KLAR’s Clad is an excellent choice for traditional style projects where a certain type of architectural design is required, while still standing up to the weather and time with minimal effort on the part of the owners. And like KLAR’s other products, design features can be simplified to provide a modern or transitional look.
Clad windows and doors offer many design options with different muntins, profiles, shapes and finishing options including natural wood stain coming standard. They are also very energy efficient, offering some of the best thermal insulation on the market and can accommodate triple glass.
Clad truly offers the best of both worlds with its tough, low maintenance aluminum exterior suitable for harsh conditions, while still offering a biophilic design, people’s innate draw towards natural materials, inside of the building.
Both aluminum and wood are considered sustainable materials so please consider clad for your project.
