Senior unveils new Ali VU heritage style aluminium door

Senior Ali VU door

SENIOR Architectural Systems has extended its 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 a solution for customers working on retrofit and refurbishment projects as well as those that require a ‘classic’ heritage style aesthetic. The door is available with a choice of two transom designs, alongside a selection of heritage style handles and backing plates.

Fully Part L compliant, Senior revealed its 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 Ali VU door has a maximum door leaf width of 1,200mm and a maximum height of 2,500mm. It can accommodate a maximum weight of 125kg per door leaf and has been security tested to meet the requirements of PAS24. The door has also been tested to BS6375 Part 1 for weather tightness and BS6375 Part 2 for operating forces.

The aluminium door has been designed to complement Senior’s Ali VU aluminium window. which the manufacturer said has proved to be a popular 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 door is manufactured by Senior at its South Yorkshire sites and extruded from recycled aluminium. It can also be powder coated at Senior’s in-house facility.
