FD73 Ali-Clad/Aluminum

The FD73 Ali-Clad series offers a contemporary appearance with narrow stiles and rails of the same width, giving an elegant modern look. By using both our wood and aluminum systems together, we have created an aluminum system cladded internally with wood. It offers a strong, durable and maintenance free finish outside while still providing the warmth and character that the wood brings inside.
