If you are asking if the miter saw can cut aluminum the answer is yes; with caution.

looks like oak
if it has aluminum in it
as crank said
just go slow

cut so the mounting holes
are still on both ends
(in other words cut both ends)
into the rubber seal
not away from it
(or it could get ripped out)

Hand Hack saw would be safer. You probably will need to cut around the door stop or molding.

Yes, if you go easy and wear safety glasses as the aluminum chips will fly all over.

I cut them on a miter saw with a non-ferrous saw blade. Cut them to finish length and use a jig saw to cut any notches you need.
