A celebration of innovation

A celebration of innovation

Have you heard the news? We have been awarded a King’s Award for Enterprise, securing the prestigious accolade in the innovation category for our low U-value PURe® aluminium window and door system. In our latest blog, we’re reflecting on what it means to be a winner, and why innovation continues to be such a big part of what we do.

What is the King’s Award?

Senior Architectural Systems is just one of the 148 companies across the UK to have received a King’s Award for Enterprise, with the winners announced on Friday 21st April 2023. It’s a real honour to be one of the very first winners of the scheme which was previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. The King’s Awards for Enterprise scheme recognises and celebrates business excellence across the UK, focusing on the four categories of innovation, sustainable development, international trade, and the promotion of opportunity through social mobility.

We will be proudly displaying our King’s Award for Enterprise logo across our marketing materials and throughout our HQ in Denaby – you’ll even see it on our trucks!

Why did we win it?

We have been recognised with the award for innovation, and specifically how this has influenced the development of our very innovative PURe® aluminium window and door system. Unlike any other fenestration system available, PURe® boasts a unique and patented design that allows it to achieve some of the lowest U-values possible and provide a thermally-efficient solution that meets the needs of both the residential and commercial sectors.

So, what makes PURe® different? When it comes to developing windows and doors that offer exceptional thermal efficiency, it’s all about the choice of thermal barrier and the PURe® has been designed to be different. The thermal break in our PURe® system is constructed from highly-efficient expanded polyurethane (PUR) foam, which is most often found in insulation products. As well as helping to prevent heat loss to reduce energy consumption and meet the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations, we have ensured that our PURe® system also offers ‘cradle to cradle’ recyclability, with even the PUR thermal barrier able to be reused with no requirement for landfill.

The journey continues

We first launched our PURe® aluminium window system back in 2015 and since then, it has gone on to be widely specified on projects across the sectors. We wanted to give our customers a ‘future-proofing’ solution so that current regulations were not only comfortably met, but exceeded. This ethos ensured that when the new Part L Building Regulations came into force in June 2022, we had a tried, tested, and trusted system to offer our customers.

The success of our very first PURe® casement window led to the development of other window styles and patio door options. Our full suite of products know includes the PURe® Commercial Door and a new partnership with Hallmark Doors and Panels Ltd to offer a secure and stylish residential front door.

And evolution of our PURe® system is set to continue with the launch of a new window option which will be unveiled later this year…watch this space!
