Alitherm Heritage profiles utilise Smart’s innovative polyamide thermal break technology which creates a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside.
Because aluminium does not rust or rot, window frames provide great longevity and can last indefinitely. This also means that the aluminium windows have the longest lifespan of any window framing material.
Modern aluminium windows are thermally-broken using polyamide, an excellent insulator which helps to insulate windows against heat loss. For a typical terraced house, this would provide a saving of around £95 each year in fuel costs.
Maintenance for aluminium systems is simple and straightforward, with a routine 'wipe-clean’ all that is required to keep the products looking their best. No need to re-paint or re-varnish, aluminium windows and doors will never fade, deteriorate or rust.
Alitherm Heritage provides the ideal solution for heritage applications such as listed building renovations and large scale replica-refurbishment projects where planning constraints are to be considered. The Alitherm Heritage window is designed to be built as a series of horizontal modules which can be stacked using horizontal couplers to form a multi-part window featuring a specially design drip bar between modules.
These can be applied to fixed windows, Single or double sash, side hung open out casements, top hung open out casements, tilt & turn windows and pivot windows. Its features include the polyamide thermal break which provides enhanced thermal performance and it is designed as a direct replacement for steel windows. The finish is a single or dual colour, marine quality polyester powder coat as standard.
The Smart Alitherm Heritage door is the ideal replacement for steel balcony doors on heritage applications such as building renovations or apartment conversions. The Alitherm Heritage door provides the solution for conservation areas where planning regulations require a like-for-like product replacement. Alitherm Heritage door profiles feature the system’s signature slim sightlines and elegant lines that complement Smart’s existing Alitherm Heritage window and mimic those of steel doors. The system has all the advantages of modern aluminium profiles that feature polyamide thermal breaks, allowing the system to achieve a U Value of 1.5 W/m2 k when installed with a suitable sealed unit.
These can be applied to single or double doors and feature slim sightlines, tape or gasket glazed, multi-point locking and face-mounted shoot blots.

Premier Frames work exclusively with market leaders Ultraframe to fabricate and supply conservatory components for installers.
Over 2 million Ultraframe products have been installed nationwide, making it the most popular conservatory frame in the UK. They are known for offering homeowners superior levels of thermal efficiency and home security. The installation process is also incredibly straightforward for you as the installer. Our products come ready assembled and have simple two or three step fittings.
We have a great relationship with Ultraframe, having recently chosen to work exclusively with them rather than using multiple suppliers.
By having such a good relationship, we can ensure that the products we supply are consistently of a high standard. All of these conservatory and extension components are manufactured here in the UK, which allows us to have a better control over what we’re supplying to our network of installers. As a result, we’re able to provide those installers with market leading conservatory and orangery roof systems.
We take pride in delivering a friendly, personal service to all the installers we work with. We’re able to offer help and support whenever required.
As the installer, you’ll have two options with receiving your Ultraframe products. You’ll be able to choose between collecting from our showroom or having the components delivered. We’re located in North East Leicester, near the A47. If you’re looking to have the products delivered, it typically takes around ten working days. Our friendly team will handle the delivery or collection professionally.
Based in the East Midlands, we have customers spread across the middle of England. We’re continually looking to expand our catchment area.
Although we primarily work with installers local to us in the East Midlands, we have previously supplied to companies as far and wide as Margate, Chippenham and Stoke. As it stands, we don’t currently supply to Wales, Scotland or Ireland. Get in contact with Premier Frames if you’re unsure whether we can supply our Ultraframe roof systems to you. If the answer is yes, we can provide you with a quote.
