Senior: Out with the old, in with the Ali VU

  • 15 Oct 2021

Whether helping to future-proof new build homes or improve the energy-efficiency of existing housing stock, Senior Architectural Systems’ slimline Ali VU aluminium windows have been specifically developed to offer exceptional thermal performance and outstanding design flexibility.

Featuring a strong yet slim profile, Senior’s Ali VU aluminium windows have a depth of just 38mm when specified as a fixed light, or 66mm with a standard vent. The attractive narrow sightlines make Ali VU the perfect cost-effective option for replacement windows, with the system combining the aesthetic appeal of traditional heritage steel windows with ultra-modern levels of thermal efficiency.


Thanks to its high-performance polyamide thermal barrier, the Ali VU system can achieve U-values as low as 0.95W/m2K when calculated as a domestic CEN standard window and additional thermal enhancements can be made by using different backer rods.

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  achieving a rating of A+. Robust, safe and secure, the Ali VU windows also successfully meet the requirements of PAS 24 and Approved Document Q.

Designed to exceed the current requirements of Part L of Building Regulations, the Ali VU system is well placed to help bring new build projects in line with the planned uplift in the new Future Homes Standard, and what’s more, it also offers a variety of design options.

The system can be specified 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 Ali VU system is also available in a low-maintenance powder-coated or anodised finish.
