This system is designed to offer a modern aluminium replacement to steel windows and doors. Alitherm heritage features slim sightlines to give you more glass and is ideal for heritage applications such as listed buildings and large scale replica refurbishments where planning restraints are to be considered.

Alitherm heritage profiles utilise Smart's innovative polyamide thermal break which creates a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside which reduces thermal transmittance and increases the overall U Value.

Materials

  • Aluminium: 6063 T6 alloy constructed of aluminium alloy extrusion to BS EN 755-9 and BS EN 12020.
  • Sealings: E.P.D.M. according to DIN 7863, TV 110, NFP 85301, ISO 3994. Tested and approved according to an artificial ageing test of "Plexi glass" combined with vulcanised rubber.
  • Co-extruded profiles: according to DIN 7863, TV 110, BFP 85301, ISO 3994, tested and approved according to an artificial ageing test of "Plexi glass" combined with vulcanised rubber.
  • Thermal break: polyamide strips PA 6.6.25% reinforced with glass fibre.
  • Radiation barrier: polyamide strips PA 6.6.25% reinforced with glass fibre.

Finishing

  • Electrostatic Powder coating: according to the guidelines of A..P.A.-Qualicoat in most of the current RAL-colours.
