Smart Architectural Aluminium, the UK’s leading supplier of aluminium systems, has announced significant updates to both its Visofold folding door and Alitherm window ranges.

The enhancements bring a number of new features to the Visofold 1000 system, with the three-pane, open-out door now certified to PAS 24 and with the maximum pane width increased from 1.0 to 1.2 metres (within recommended weight restrictions) – providing even greater design flexibility for both residential and commercial projects.

A new improved handle has also been launched for Visofold 1000. Featuring a flatter design, the handle delivers robust, long-lasting performance, while providing an elegant design solution. Finally, a new threshold option is available for use in place of the combined outer threshold and cill, effectively reducing the height of the overall threshold by 24mm.

The high-performance Alitherm 800 window system also benefits from a number of improvements. Delivering an A window energy rating and a u-value of just 1.0W/m²K (dependant on the sealed unit), the range of standard profiles for the range has now been expanded to provide an even more comprehensive suite of products. With all profiles benefitting from Smart’s innovative polyamide thermal break technology, Alitherm 800 now offers more outer frame, sash and bead options, together with a completely new French casement variant.

Commenting on the updates, Smart’s Managing Director, Eddie Robinson said: “Both the Visofold and Alitherm systems are firmly established in our core range, having been installed in a wide variety of projects throughout the UK. However as part of our market-leading product development programme, which builds on feedback from our customer base, we are now delighted to introduce this package of enhancement and look forward to seeing both systems being used in an even greater range of applications.”

Both the Visofold and Alitherm ranges are available with an extensive choice of standard or non-standard colours – for full details of the new products and available finishes, call Smart’s customer services team on 01934 876 100 or visit
