Wood-aluminum door shapes
Typical wood-aluminum doors have a rectangular shape. However, you can decide to order the joinery in a non-standard form . The availability of individual shapes – e.g. a circle, a trapezoid, a triangle, an arc or an ellipse – depends on the technological possibilities of a specific type of structure and aluminum cladding. Due to this fact, before placing an order, it is always worth consulting with the technologists from MS Windows and Doors.
Types of wood and available varnish coatings
In the case of wooden and aluminum entrance doors, the same types and colors of wood are available as in other products from the MS Windows and Doors offer.
