In, Out, Shake It All About

Smart Architectural Aluminium says it will shake up the market with its Alitherm 400, the latest addition to its Alitherm portfolio of window and door systems. The system offers both open in and open out options.

Alitherm 400 system offers a range of casement windows and single and double doors. The system has been designed to fully comply with the updated thermal requirements of part L of the building regulations.

Developed to suit a wide variety of projects, including both new build and refurbishment, residential and light commercial applications, Alitherm 400 features Smart’s quick-glaze beads with integrated gasket. With the profiles and beads being supplied with the glazing gasket pre-extruded into the profile, fabrication and installation time are both reduced.


Locking options

The Alitherm 400 window system is available in fixed, side-hung, top-hung and flush casement options. It also features both flush and chamfered window profiles, with the flush, flat face option suitable for off-set, face-mounted espagnolette locks and the chamfered design, which features a eurogroove, enables in-line espagnolette locking mechanisms to be used.


Open in or out doors

Available in open-in or open-out and with single or double door options, the Alitherm 400 doors complement the window range, featuring the same lines and the ease of fabrication and installation. They can also be combined with Smart’s designer door panels and the company’s range of standard door furniture (including colour matched lever handles, and the Quantum range of stainless-steel hardware), to create and contemporary entrance doors.


 “Our Alitherm systems have proved to be popular in projects across the UK and so adding Alitherm 400 is yet another option.”

Managing director, Smart Architectural Aluminium


Made in Britain

“Fully compliant with the new part L requirements, the system is fast and easy to fabricate and install, which together with its elegant lines and outstanding performance provides a solution for architects, developers, fabricators and installers,” continues Smart’s Robinson. “Along with our new Visofold 1000 slim bi-fold door, this is another product designed, developed and manufactured in Britain.”


Weather, thermal and security performance

Both window and door systems provide strong weather and thermal performance, as well as the security assurance provided by PAS 24:2016 accreditation. The systems are also available with a wide range of 316 marine grade stainless steel hardware options, which can be painted to order, with the systems and hardware all available in Smart’s extensive range of standard colours.
