Senior Architectural Systems has extended its popular Ali VU range of slimline aluminium windows and doors with the addition of a new heritage style door option.

The sleek and stylish Ali VU door has been developed to offer an attractive, secure and thermally-efficient solution for customers working on retrofit and refurbishment projects as well as those that require a classic heritage style aesthetic. The new door is available with a choice of two transom designs to offer greater design flexibility, alongside a selection of heritage style handles and backing plates.

Fully Part L compliant, Senior’s new door can achieve U-values as low as 1.0 W/m2K when calculated as a CEN standard door. Available in both inward and outward opening single or double door styles, with a choice of double and triple glazing up to 44mm thick, the new Ali VU door has a maximum door leaf width of 1200mm and a maximum height of 2500mm. It can accommodate a maximum weight of 125kg per door leaf and has been fully security tested to meet the requirements of PAS24. The new Ali VU door has also been tested to BS6375 Part 1 for weather tightness and BS6375 Part 2 for operating forces.

The new Ali VU aluminium door has been designed to complement Senior’s stylish Ali VU aluminium window which thanks to its slim frame and narrow sightlines, has proved to be a popular and cost-effective replacement for traditional steel windows. Both are suitable for use on residential and commercial projects. The Ali VU range also includes the Ali FOLD and Ali SLIDE aluminium door options.

The new Ali VU door is manufactured by Senior at its South Yorkshire sites and is extruded from recycled aluminium. Like all products within Senior’s extensive product range, the new aluminium door can be powder coated at Senior’s in-house facility.
