What is the lifespan of Smart Aluminium windows and doors?
Smart Aluminium windows and doors have an impressive lifespan, typically lasting for 40 years before needing replacement. This surpasses the typical 35-year replacement period for steel, PVC, and timber.
How do Smart Aluminium products improve thermal efficiency?
Our modern aluminium windows are thermally-broken using polyamide, an excellent insulator that helps to insulate windows against heat loss. This can provide significant energy savings and increase the internal temperature of a house, reducing the risk of condensation.
What maintenance is required for Smart Aluminium systems?
Maintenance for our aluminium systems is simple and straightforward, with a routine ‘wipe-clean’ all that is required to keep the products looking their best. There’s no need for re-painting or re-varnishing.
Are Smart Aluminium products resistant to rust?
Yes, aluminium does not rust or rot, so our window frames provide great longevity. They will never fade, deteriorate or rust, even in harsh environments, such as coastal locations.
What is the Alitherm Heritage range?
The Alitherm Heritage range is designed to meet the needs of refurbishment and renewal projects, particularly in sensitive planning areas. Its signature slim profiles and sightlines are the ideal solution for listed building renovations.
What is the maximum sash size for the Alitherm Heritage range?
The Alitherm Heritage HD is designed to provide a solution where heritage projects require a larger opening sash size than offered by a standard Alitherm Heritage casement window.
What are the benefits of aluminium over steel?
Aluminium offers improved thermal efficiency and long-life performance. It’s a modern, lightweight, high-strength, and cost-effective alternative to traditional steel window and door systems.
Can I customise the colour of my Smart Aluminium windows and doors?
Yes, our products come in single or dual colour options, with a marine quality polyester powder coat as standard. This allows you to customize the look of your doors and windows to perfectly match the style of your property.
