Regalead Reports Successes With Urban Bar For Bifold Doors

by | Nov 23, 2023 | Aluminium

Urban Bar from RegaLead has been incorporated by a significant number of aluminium fabricators across multiple window and door systems, aiming to achieve the industrial heritage aesthetic.

The trend for industrial heritage continues to grow, with more companies introducing an astragal bar system to transform standard bifold doors. However, as with the PVC versions, aluminium astragal bars have not been without issues, mainly “popping off” due to expansion. The new Urban Bar solution from RegaLead has been designed to resolve this common issue by use of a multi-patented clip system, says the company.

The clip is integral to the success of RegaLead’s Urban Bar system. It uses a tried and tested strung steel clip, patented across the world to ensure that once fitted, they stay in place, says the company. The universal clip works with both width of bar, 25mm and 40mm, to create both heritage and modern aesthetics. While the authentic look of separate transoms and mullions is completed quickly and efficiently in the factory with SDLs and astragal bars. In addition, the deep profile running gasket is a key part of the system to create a perfect finish.

Urban Bar is available in 10 industry standard colours plus a selection of Renolit foil finishes. Urban Bar is also available as a mill finish for customers looking to powder coat themselves or in a painted finish to match any RAL colour.

Guy Hubble, Joint MD at RegaLead says: “The success of Urban Bar has exceeded our expectations. It’s been impressive to see how installers have found new ways to create both traditional and contemporary designs.

“One application we weren’t expecting was the use of Urban bar on PVCu flush sash windows. It works because the slim Urban Bar is a perfect fit with the low-profile sashes. What’s more, the result is stunning, transforming standard flush sash windows into the industrial heritage steel-look.

“The popularity of Urban Bar continues to grow and the number of enquiries we’ve received for shows a real desire for the industrial look for glazing in homes.”
