Senior Architectural Systems has extended its product offering for the domestic residential market by adding the new Ali VU multi frame option to its range of high performance aluminium windows and doors.
With the newAliVU multi frame,trade customers are able to choose from a range of internally or externally beaded configurations, creating opportunities for the use of fixed light and vents in the same window. Designed with the trade fabricator in mind, the new multi frame option requires no new or additional tooling and can be fabricated using the same crimping knives and blocks as the Ali VU standard outerframe options. Senior’s new Ali VU multi frame doesn’t require any add-on profiles to convert external beaded profiles to internal and vice versa.
Through Senior’s in-house powder coating facility AliVU multi frame can be ordered in the full range of RAL colours. It is also available in pre-powder coated single and dual colour anthracite grey and hipca white. Deliveries from stock are guaranteed within 3-5 days across the full suite of Senior’s slim line Ali VU windows and Ali FOLD bi-folding and patio doors.
Senior Architectural Systems’ sales director James Keeling-Heane says:“The development of our domestic product
Rehau has created a new brochure to introduce its Thermally Activated Building Structures (TABS) technology to architects and specifiers looking for an environmentally-friendly heating and cooling system.
TABS uses the large thermal mass of concrete in a building’s structure to adjust the environment inside the building throughout the day. It does this by running heated or chilled water through a network of PE-Xa pipes embedded within the concrete slabs. Understanding that many of the industry professionals looking at TABS as a possible heating and cooling system for their next project will not be familiar with the technology, Rehau has redesigned its brochure to give a more simple, concise overview of the system and its benefits. ❐
  Not just gold
 Vintage UPVC Products is one of the latest fabricators to join Deceuninck. Vintage, part of the Windoormate Group, chose Deceuninck for its #BestInClass products and unrivalled colour capabilities.
Company director Gareth Guy says: “We have noticed huge demand for heritage-style windows, predominantly in colour. Colour and heritage go hand in hand.We chose Deceuninck because its heritage flush sash window is the perfect addition to our portfolio, and the choice of colours from stock is unbeatable. It means we don’t have to stock colour ourselves because we know that whatever we order will be with us by the next delivery.”
  range has been driven by our desire to give the trade customers what they want, when they want it. Our aim is for our products to perform as well as they look, to be easy to fabricate and install and to be supported by sort lead times and reliable deliveries.
“Following the launch of our Ali VU windows earlier this year and the growing popularity of our Ali FOLD door range, we have had some really great feedback from the trade.We may be better known for our commercial sector contracts but there is a definite place for aluminium in the domestic market.” ❐
    Guy says: “We started fabricating Deceuninck in 2017, the transition went very smoothly. The Deceuninck team was fantastic – they came in and sorted out the tooling, so we didn’t have to do anything.
“We have been very impressed with the quality of Deceuninck’s products. I’ve been in the business for over 35 years and the profile is excellent.We’ve had fantastic feedback from our installer customers too – everyone loves the profile. We can’t fault Deceuninck’s service. Deliveries are always on time and the team is in regular contact to make sure everything’s running smoothly. Deceuninck is a great company to work with.” ❐
