Add the warm, natural look of wood to your sun controls, louvers and louver screens. Airolite’s aluminum blades, coated with our innovative, durable Airowood™ woodgrain finish, provide the look that works, along with long life and resistance to humidity and UV rays.

Unlike wood, our Airowood finished components demonstrate optimum durability, without warping, cracking or chipping. The powder-coat finish, applied with an eco-friendly pressure and heat process, offers excellent color retention and color uniformity. With Airolite’s high-definition woodgrain finishes you can turn ordinary into something extraordinary.

Key advantages include:

• Realistic, high-definition appearance
• Affords new design elements and adds value to projects
• Durable finish protects from humidity and UV rays
• Eco-friendly processes, saves on waste while averting harsh pollutants

The Look — That Lasts.

Our high-definition, natural-look woodgrain finishes are extremely durable and colorfast, designed to resist fading or other effects of exposure to sun, precipitation, humidity, dirt and temperature extremes.

The Process

Our factory-applied AAMA 2604 rated woodgrain finish combines premium-quality architectural powder coating, with a transferrable woodgrain ink that is vacuumed formed applied and permeated into the powder coat finish.

The woodgrain transferal process includes:
• A powder coat base that is applied to our aluminum substrate and heated precisely under controlled conditions.
• Upon cooling, the woodgrain ink is applied using a plastic envelop of heat transfer inks, smoothed and vacuumed to remove any trapped air.
• A regulated warming of the transfer elements facilitates an ideal finish bond for exterior applications.
• Finally, the plastic envelop of patterned ink vaporizes, leaving behind a stable woodgrain finish pattern that is unified with the powder coat base.
