What Is Alu Clad?

Aluminium clad windows, also known as alu clad windows, are windows made up of wood on the inside and aluminium cladding on the outside. The wood interior gives you all the benefits of wood windows, and at the same time, the aluminium exterior protects the wood from the elements. The aluminium clad exterior keeps the wood dry and needs little to no maintenance, while the wooden interior can be stained or painted to suit your design requirements.
