Advantages of Aluminum Frames
- Slim Profile
- Narrow sight lines
- Low Maintenance
Light yet strong, aluminum doors can be configured into a wide variety of combinations. The narrowness of the frame places the focus on the glass and subsequently, the view it offers. Multi-panel door systems are often made with aluminum frames to facilitate indoor/outdoor living.
Aluminum is not recommended in beach homes for while the material is water resistant, it can suffer corrosion from salt water and salt air. The corrosion affects hardware operation and frame performance. Compared with vinyl, fiberglass and wood frames, aluminum conducts heat and cold the least well.
