The rise in demand for contemporary design and energy efficient products has been top of mind for architects and designers. LaCantina’s Contemporary Clad blends both style and performance to suit any architecture, any home.
Homeowners are seeking the durability of aluminum to withstand outside elements but also wish for the warmth that wood has to offer inside. Our Contemporary Clad is designed with an extruded aluminum exterior and wood interior to offer the best of both worlds in one product.
As with all our products, how they look is a crucial part of the design process. The Contemporary Clad features a narrow 2 15/16” stile and rail profile for all-around perfect symmetry providing a clean aesthetic and more natural daylight. To match any architectural style we offer both a contemporary square profile and a more traditional sculpted profile. Complete with a new proprietary hardware package the Contemporary Clad embodies the true meaning of flexible design.
While improved styling options typically compromise performance, the Contemporary Clad’s thicker 2 1/4" panels provide increased thermal efficiency for year-round comfort. This is particularly significant as more stringent energy codes have been adopted nationwide. The Contemporary Clad meets even the most progressive energy code requirements with our standard glass options.
Though large openings are the focal point of design, our Contemporary Clad also complements any aluminum or clad window package with our square profile option and anodized aluminum exterior. Designed for any home, any style the Contemporary Clad is our most versatile and energy efficient product yet available across our folding, sliding and swing systems.
