Manufactured with the same standards and options as our All-Wood series, our Clad-Series (AlumiClad and BronzClad) offers a maintenance free cladding on the exterior utilizing the European clip attachment process from Uniform.
Not to be confused with standard clad products manufactured in the US, the European system is designed to allow airflow between the cladding and the wood structure preventing trapped moisture, which can cause rot and decay from the inside-out.
Available in all window types and unlimited colors and anodized finishes, the Clad-Series will provide a lifetime of beauty and service.

The European Clad system is unique and should be differentiated from clad systems typical to US manufacturers. US manufacturers use either a roll-formed aluminum clad system or in the best case, an extruded aluminum clad system. Both of these systems have been designed to wrap the wood substrate beneath creating the potential for trapped moisture which leads to rot and decay.
By virtue of our heavier gauge extrusions and clip attachment process, the European Clad system is held away from the wood substrate allowing for air-flow between the cladding and the wood substrate and thus preventing trapped moisture. Furthermore, unlike US manufactured clad system, the European Clad system has no seams at the corners of frames or at stile and rails joints.
All aluminum and bronze cladding is welded and sanded to a smooth surface prior to application of your selected finish on all surfaces, creating a seamless, miter free, impervious, low maintenance cladding for years of beauty and peace of mind.
Factory pre-finishing offers unlimited choices using advanced high performance water based films that far exceed the beauty and performance of job-site finishing at significant cost savings.
