Aluminum Clad Wood Entry Doors - Custom Modern EuroTechTM Door Collection
Solid Wood entry doors are known for their elegance and high quality appearance and function. However, they are at a higher risk to of being negatively impacted if exposed to harsh weather and direct sunlight. We have sourced a solution to still provide the solid wood feel and look, but without the risk of wear and tear. Our Modern Euro-Technology construction utilizes a sandwich technology that can withstand the elements, while maintaining its structure and beauty. We have also gone a step further to protect against the elements, by incorporating aluminum shield technology.read more»

Modern EuroTechTM (Euro Technology) Wood with Exterior Aluminum Shield
The door sandwich design includes stiles and rails made from solid European wood, thermal insulation board - and layers of aluminum sheets and plywood in various wood veneers including Mahogany wood. This design provides excellent thermal performance and overall product durability.
Aluminum shield entry doors are geared towards clients that are interested in high quality security and insulation. The sleek exterior of the door is ideal for modern homes. This shield will protect your entry from harsh elements, as well as exposure to direct sunlight. The interior of the home remains the timeless and elegant wood veneer that we are known for. The construction of this door line is as sophisticated as it looks. The aluminum “shield” never comes in contact with the wood. This feature prohibits vapor diffusion and eventual damage to the solid wood veneer. Minimal maintenance is required when it comes to caring for the longevity of this aluminum shield. Built to last, these doors provide unmatched thermal performance and insulation. The pairing of our Euro-Technology door with the aluminum shield creates a beautiful door that will last a lifetime.
At Glenview Haus, we are constantly pushing the limits of what we can do for our valued clients. This featured project demonstrates just some of the capabilities we have when it comes to customizing your ideal entrance. Towering over eight feet high and stretching an unprecedented five feet wide, this Aluminum Clad Pivot Door is particularly impressive because of its dimensions. Unlike Glenview Haus, most companies are unable to offer such a wide entrance.
However, the only way to construct such a remarkably wide door is with a pivot hinge. Most pivot doors struggle with poor insulation and are susceptible to warping and cracking, however, our Pivot Door Collection uses double rabbeted jambs, multi-point lock systems, and our revolutionary Euro Technology construction method to avoid these common issues. These precautionary features become even more effective with the aluminum clad exterior, which is just as good at protecting your home from harsh weather conditions as it is at creating a beautiful entrance. Undoubtedly, our doors offer the best insulation and thermal performance. These qualities are particularly important in such unpredictable weather conditions that we face in Chicago and the surrounding Chicagoland area. High winds and heavy rain are no match for our Pivot Door Collection, even if your home sits right on Lake Michigan.
While these doors perform exceptionally well under any conditions, they look great doing it. The contrasting finished wood interior and sleek metallic exterior creates the perfect entrance for any modern home.
Adhering to the highest standards, we exclusively use our own heavy duty ball bearing patina coated brass hinge with a steel pin. The weight of one hinge is 13 oz. Architecturally proportioned, this 4" straight angle distinctive design boasts the finest quality.
Fully hidden and adjustable, the concealed hinge does its job so well that you will only notice that it is there to admire the technology. We use only the finest concealed hinges from Tectus, a german brand that produces some of the highest quality hinges in the world.
