As the love affair with VJ panels continues—whether it’s in Hampton’s, coastal or Scandi barn inspired homes—new solutions to using this look in weather-exposed situations are emerging.

Doors that can withstand harsh Australian weather conditions are one example. They need to be tough, durable, and preferably, require little maintenance. And of course, they should also look as good as the day they went in, for many years to come.

Hume Doors & Timber has risen to this challenge with their new Elite VJ aluminium door selection. This extension to the Elite range is welcome news to builders and homeowners needing the practicality of an aluminium door yet desire the charm and warmth of this elegant style.

The Elite range works perfectly with timber or aluminium jambs. All of the doors in Hume’s Elite range are architecturally designed and the VJ aluminium doors feature clean lines with a durable, high-quality powder coated finish.

Choose from ten timeless designs, with or without a glazed panel, and six different coloured or wood-look powder coated finishes.

For ultimate weather protection and increased energy efficiency, match with the Hume Weatherguard Timber Frame.

Black doors are on trend right now, but painting a timber door black voids its warranty. Elite aluminium doors powder-coated in Monument® or black are the ideal solution.
