Product description

As more trade customers ‘Ask for Ali’, Senior Architectural Systems has responded by adding weight to its domestic product range with the launch of the new slimline Ali VU aluminium window.

The inherent strength of aluminium allows the Ali VU windows to combine attractive slim sightlines with high performance, energy-efficiency and security. Featuring a polyamide thermal break, Senior’s Ali VU aluminium double-glazed windows have been designed to achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) of A, with the triple glazed option designed to achieve a rating of A+. Robust, safe and secure, the Ali VU windows also successfully meet the requirements of PAS 24 and Approved Document Q.

The new Ali VU windows offer exceptional design flexibility, with a choice of configurations, including standard or ovolo feature outerframe, flat faced, stepped face or radius vents, and square or chamfered beads. Benefiting from Senior’s established manufacturing expertise, the strong yet slim profile aluminium frame of the new Ali VU window can accept glazing up to 44mm thick and is available in a low-maintenance powder-coated or anodised finish.

Commenting on the new product launch, Senior Architectural System’s sales director James Keeling-Heane said: “Along with Senior’s established Ali FOLD aluminium doors, the new Ali VU aluminium window has been specifically developed with the trade fabricator and installer in mind, offering a range of benefits that can be passed on to the domestic end-user. Easy to fabricate, adjust, install and maintain, the slim profile of the new Ali VU window also looks great and offers high thermal efficiency and low U-values.

We are committed to giving our customers the products they need with the high levels of service they deserve and we are excited to be able to offer a full range of glazing solutions that are ideally suited to the residential market where the popularity of aluminium glazing systems continues to soar.”

The new Ali VU aluminium window perfectly complements Senior’s popular Ali FOLD range of single, double and bi-fold aluminium doors to offer the trade a complete suite of glazing solutions for domestic contracts.

Competitively priced, the Ali FOLD aluminium door range has been developed using a high performance polyamide thermal barrier that can give ultra-low U-values.  The system can also receive double or triple glazing up to 48mm for even greater thermal and acoustic performance.  Following the successful launch of the range in early 2017, Senior has invested in new state of the art polyamide rolling machine to speed up production of the polyamide bars that give the Ali FOLD doors their impressive thermal break, helping to double its existing capacity to increase efficiency and ensure the timely delivery of all customer orders.

Senior’s sales director James Keeling-Heane adds: “The new Ali FOLD door range has really captured the attention of our trade customers who require high quality aluminium bi-fold and patio doors and rely on manufacturers being able to give them what they want, when they want it.

As we see more orders coming in, ensuring we can meet demand and that our factory floor is working as efficiently as possible is a key priority for us. The investment in new machinery will provide us with the extra capacity we need and will give our customers the consistently high standards of service they have come to expect from Senior.”
