Royal Enfield is one of the world’s oldest and most famous motorcycle manufacturers, known for creating modern classics. The company’s cool and contemporary style is reflected in the design of its striking new technology centre in Leicestershire.
Featuring a range of aluminium glazing solutions from Senior Architectural Systems, the highly glazed façade of the impressive two storey research and development facility maximises the flow of natural light whilst ensuring a comfortable internal working environment.
Senior’s popular SF52 aluminium curtain wall system with its attractive slim sightlines and enhanced thermal performance was chosen to create the building’s dramatic glazed entrance. Slim profile thermally-broken SPW300 aluminium windows were also specified, alongside robust, high-performance SPW500 and SPW501 aluminium doors which are ideal for high traffic areas.
The glazing package enabled the architect and client to create a sleek, modern finish, whilst the low U-values offered by both the windows and curtain wall made a significant contribution to the overall energy-efficiency of the building.
