Strong demand for RegaLead Urban Bar

RegaLead says that its Urban Bar has been added by ‘a significant number’ of aluminium fabricators, across multiple window and door systems, to create an industrial heritage look.

The trend for industrial heritage continues to grow, with more companies introducing an astragal bar system to transform standard bi-fold 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.

The universal clip works with both width of bar, 25mm and 40mm, to create heritage and modern aesthetics, while the authentic look of separate transoms and mullions is completed in the factory with SDLs and astragal bars. In addition, the deep profile running gasket is a key part of the system.

Urban Bar is available in 10 industry standard colours plus a selection of Renolit foil finishes including smooth anthracite, golden oak and Irish oak.  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 PVC-U 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.”
