Combining the aesthetic appeal of traditional steel windows with the high-performance benefits of a modern aluminium system, Ali VU from Senior Architectural Systems has been specified for a new residential development in Liverpool.
Designed by John McCall Architects, the five-storey Lister Gardens apartment scheme in Crosby has been inspired by the art deco style of the area’s architecture and in particular, the former Royal British Legion building nearby.
The name of the development also pays homage to Lance Bombardier Tom Lister, the first chairman of the armed forces charity organisation.
The scheme consists of 20 one and two-bedroom apartments, all benefitting from the attractive slim sightlines offered by Senior’s Ali VU casement windows.
As well as successfully emulating the look of heritage style windows, the Ali VU system offers a range of contemporary features including excellent energy-efficiency, security and durability.
Featuring a polyamide thermal break, Senior’s Ali VU aluminium double-glazed windows have been designed to achieve a Window Energy Rating (WER) of A, with the triple glazed option designed to achieve a rating of A+.
Robust, safe and secure, the Ali VU windows also successfully meet the requirements of PAS 24 and Approved Document Q.
Suitable for both residential and commercial schemes, Senior’s Ali VU windows also offer exceptional design flexibility, with a choice of configurations, including standard or ovolo feature outerframe, flat faced, stepped face or radius vents, and square or chamfered beads.
Benefiting from Senior’s established manufacturing expertise, the strong yet slim profile aluminium frame of the new Ali VU window can accept glazing up to 44mm thick and is available in a low-maintenance powder-coated or anodised finish.
To complete the fenestration package, Senior’s thermally-efficient SPW600 aluminium commercial doors have also been fabricated and installed to the development’s main communal entrances by Kingfisher Windows for main contractor M & Y Maintenance and Construction and property developers Redwing.
Deborah Beeley, sales and marketing manager for Kingfisher Windows, said: “Kingfisher Windows has been a long-time fabricator of Senior’s products for both our trade and commercial customers.
“This installation for the Lister Gardens project is the latest example of our successful partnership and it’s an installation that we are extremely proud of.”
