Advanced Thermal Efficiency
Alitherm 400 systems form an effective barrier that keeps you comfortable during extreme weather conditions. That’s because its windows and doors offer significantly reduced thermal transmittance, enhancing the system’s overall U-value. The innovative polyamide thermal break technology works all year round, keeping you warm inside when it’s cold out and vice versa.
When you choose this system, you’re making an energy-efficient choice. With energy ratings reaching A and higher, it far exceeds the minimum industry requirements for British homes.
Incorporates Smart’s Alitherm 400 New Quick-Glaze Bead
Now you can ensure that windows and doors will provide optimal thermal performance while saving time and money during installation. That’s because Alitherm 400 systems have pioneered the first thermally broken system to include a co-extruded glazing gasket. The beads are supplied with the glazing gasket post-extruded into the profile, so installers can tap it on-site instead of doing beading first and then inserting wedge gaskets.
Uniquely Slim and Sleek
Similar systems often have bulky frames to meet the strength requirements that can support the glazing. In contrast, the structural strength of Alitherm 400 systems accommodates exceptionally slim frames that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
Extensive Range of Design and Security Options
When using Alitherm 400, you’re spoilt for choice while deciding which security features and aesthetic finishes you want for your project.
Window Profiles and Locking Mechanisms
Select a flush or chamfered profile for your window and incorporate espagnolette locks that are in-line or off-set and face-mounted, respectively. No matter which route you take, the outcome will be slim lines and a sophisticated look.
Whether you want to let in light, fresh air, or both, Alitherm 400 will meet your needs. Choose side-hung, top-hung, or fixed windows per your project’s specifications.
A wide range of designer panels fit the Smarts Alitherm 400 door, letting you create elegant and contemporary entrance doors.
Not only can door lever handles be colour matched, but you can also decide on details like your preferred stainless steel hardware from the Quantum range.
Door Opening Direction
Depending on where the door will be installed, you can opt for open-in or open-out single or double doors. This way, any space can be accessed hassle-free. Double doors also feature low thresholds that aid in limiting noise transmission.
Security Options for Doors
You can decide how to secure your doors by choosing between key wind or lift levers and slam-lock or multi-point locks.
Do you want your doors and windows to blend in or stand out from the rest of the building? Both are easy to do with five colour collections: Sensations, Cotswold, Alchemy, Naturals, and Creations. However, if you don’t find the colour you want in these collections, you can match your windows and doors to any RAL colour. This range of choices means you have hundreds of colours at your disposal. In addition, you can request the colour of the quick-glaze beads to be either white, black, or anthracite grey. Achieving the look you desire has never been this easy.
