Heritage Popularity On Increase For CDW Systems

by | Apr 16, 2024 | Aluminium

Specialist aluminium fabricator CDW Systems has seen the popularity of its Smart Alitherm Heritage Range increase despite the current market slowdown.

CDW Systems added the modern thermal aluminium range to its offering three years ago due to demand from customers and it is said to have proved a ‘fantastic’ decision.

Specifically developed to meet the requirements of refurbishment renewal projects, particularly in sensitive planning areas, the range is claimed to be ideal for Victorian and Art Deco projects. It has also provided the ideal solution for many heritage projects across the UK.

Managing director Jeremy Phillips said: “We had a strong start when we initially introduced the Heritage Range, with success in our local Gloucestershire area where there are many older properties in need of refurbishment. That has continued thanks to its slim profiles and sightlines, which are the ideal solution for building renovations as well as new projects.

“The popularity of aluminium domestically combined with the industrial steel look being hugely desirable now is why the Heritage Range is becoming more and more specified.”

The Alitherm Heritage door and window ranges both feature slim profiles and sightlines that are associated with traditional steel doors and windows for timeless elegance while offering the thermal performance of a modern aluminium system with each delivering a ‘B’ Energy Rating.

The window range, which is security tested to PAS 24:2016 and comes with both Heritage and Art Deco hardware options, is available in several formats, including fixed-pane, top-hung and side-hung casement, pivot, and tilt and turn and these 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.

CDW Systems recent merger with its sister company, supplier and installer Clearway Doors & Windows, means that the manufacturing of the Heritage Range will move to CDW Systems’ Gloucester headquarters, which will house all production moving forward due to space and the machinery available.

“Moving Heritage, and Smarts AluSpace, which is also becoming more popular, to our Gloucester site will help meet the demand,” added Jeremy. “We still think of both as niche products, but that is becoming less of the case in today’s market. And offering both means we can offer customers the best of both – Heritage for external and AluSpace for internal.”
