The glazing beads can be square or chamfered and there is a choice of a 58mm or 70mm deep frame to accommodate varying applications.
Available in a choice of standard or non-standard colours, including metallic, dual colour, Smart’s textured Sensations & Cotswold ranges and Alchemy anodised effect finishes.
Alitherm Heritage provides the ideal solution for heritage applications such as listed building renovations and large scale replica-refurbishment projects where planning constraints are to be considered.
The window is designed to be built as a series of horizontal modules which can be stacked using horizontal couplers to form a multi-part window featuring a specially design drip bar between modules.
Alitherm profiles utilise Smart’s innovative polyamide thermal break technology which creates a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside. This technology significantly reduces thermal transmittance and enhances the overall U Value of a product and is designed to meet the exacting requirements of Document L 2010.
