Heritage Range investment proves a shrewd move for CDW Systems

Alitherm HeritageCDW Systems decision to add the Smart Alitherm Heritage Range to its portfolio has proved a shrewd move by the renowned Gloucester based aluminium fabricator.

Having used the quieter times during lockdown to introduce several new products to its range, including flat roof lights and Designer Doors, it’s the third product from Smart Systems that has particularly caught the eye of customers.

The modern thermal aluminium range has been specifically developed to meet the requirements of refurbishment renewal projects, particularly in sensitive planning areas, and is ideal for Victorian and Art Deco projects, while the wide range of commercial residential windows and balcony doors have also provided the ideal solution for many heritage projects across the UK.

Group Chairman Jeremy Phillips said: “We invested in all three Smart products in response to increasing demand from customers and have had a really strong start with the Heritage Range, with success in our local Gloucestershire area where there are many older properties in need of refurbishment.

“Many of our existing customers, who were buying the Heritage Range from elsewhere, were really pleased to hear we could supply it and are now buying from us, and some new customers are taking it too.”

The Alitherm Heritage door and window ranges both feature slim profiles and sightlines that are associated with traditional steel doors and windows. However, the system’s timeless elegance is also accompanied by the outstanding thermal performance of a modern aluminium system – each delivering a ‘B’ Energy Rating.

The window range is available in several formats, including fixed-pane, top-hung and side-hung casement, pivot, and tilt and turn. These different options may be installed in a combination of horizontal modules, which are stacked using Smart’s coupling options to form a multi-part window featuring a specially designed drip bar between modules.

Alitherm Heritage windows are security tested to PAS 24:2016 and come with both Heritage and Art Deco hardware options.

“The Smart Alitherm Heritage Range is a great system,” added Jeremy. “The slim profiles and sightlines are the ideal solution for building renovations as well as new projects, and it’s a product that we think is will become more and more specified. We’re excited to be offering this new range to installers.
