The decision to add Smart Systems AluSpace to its portfolio has proved astute for TWR Group.
The major North East PVCu and aluminium fabricator introduced the interior steel-look door and screening system to its range towards the end of last year and it has already had a strong start with existing customers.
The system has been designed by Smart as an internal alternative to its Alitherm Heritage windows and doors and is normally single glazed, not thermally broken, and can be sprayed any colour to match the interiors, with black as standard.
Developed to create light and airy internal environments, AluSpace can be used to divide residential or commercial spaces of any shape and size, while at the same time providing an effective acoustic barrier.
The design is perfect for commercial environments, offices, homes and old industrial buildings that are being converted into apartments as it will keep that traditional steel, industrial aesthetic.
TWR supplies the full range of products available through Smart Systems and TWR Group Director Laura Richardson said: “Our long-term partnership with Smart and its products has been fantastic, and we invested in AluSpace in response to increasing demand from customers and it has had a strong start.
“Despite being an exterior system, many of our existing customers have been using Smart’s Heritage products internally and were delighted to hear that we could now supply a dedicated interior steel look system which effectively divides spaces and creates highly attractive screens and doors.
“It’s sleek and elegant lines let light flow from room to room and perfectly complement our aluminium window and door ranges for customers too.”
AluSpace comes with a choice of hinged single and double doors, as well as pivot and sliding options to accompany the fixed glazed screen. Options also extend to include visible hinges or concealed pivot or sliding mechanisms, enabling the systems to be tailored to meet design styles.
The predominantly single glazed system, with glass available in 6mm, 8mm and 18mm thicknesses, comes with laminated or toughened safety glass as standard. To add the final additions, there is a wide range of accessories, including a choice of classic, modern and industrial handles.
“AluSpace is a great new aluminium solution for those wanting to create the sought-after industrial steel style and it delivers fantastic value,” added Laura. “It also means we can offer AluSpace for internal and Heritage for external, which is what has pleased our customers and has made it a fantastic addition to our range for installers. We are expecting it to continue to prove popular with our customers in 2023.”
