As well as helping to save energy by providing some of the lowest U-values available to the UK market, Senior Architectural Systems’ patented range of thermally-efficient PURe® aluminium windows and doors are also proving popular with specifiers looking to reduce long-term maintenance costs.
Robust, durable and with an expected life cycle in excess of 40 years, Senior’s PURe® aluminium windows and doors benefit from an enhanced PUR thermal barrier which can achieve exceptional low U-values. Owing to the inherent strength of the aluminium frame, the system offers a cost-effective alternative to using energy efficient triple-glazing which, when used in high-traffic environments such as schools and student accommodation buildings, has a greater risk of breaking and would be more expensive to replace. Each of the PURe® windows and doors styles within the range are also easy to fabricate, install and adjust and can be powder-coated in a variety of colours, both inside and out. A number of high-performance finishes and specialist coatings are also available which can further boost the durability of the system.
By helping to reduce maintenance requirements and operational energy costs, Senior’s thermally-efficient PURe® aluminium windows and doors can offer tangible long-term and sustainable solutions for projects in both the commercial and residential sectors. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the system is fully recyclable, with the PUR thermal barrier also being reused so there is no requirement for landfill. For added peace of mind, Senior is also accredited to BRE Global’s BES 6001 standard for the responsible and sustainable sourcing of its aluminium extrusions.
Offering reliable performance with design flexibility, Senior’s PURe® aluminium windows have the potential to achieve U values of 0.71W/m2K when calculated as a commercial CEN Standard window and are available in a range of styles, sizes and configurations to suit both new and refurbished buildings, including classic casement, tilt and turn and reversible overswing for easy cleaning.
The new PURe® Commercial Door is Senior’s largest and strongest door solution to date and offers a robust, low maintenance solution for a range of applications. The innovative door system has been designed to perform up to a maximum leaf size of 1400mm x 3000mm and 180Kg and with Senior’s innovative patented PUR thermal break at its core, has impressive thermal efficiency to achieve U-Values as low as 0.94W/m2K when calculated as a CEN Standard door.
Ideally suited to both residential and commercial projects, the PURe® aluminium door range also includes two attractive patio styles, with the popular PURe® FOLD door achieving U-values as low as 0.93 W/m2K when calculated as a CEN Standard door and the PURe® SLIDE, which is also available as a triple-track option, achieving U-values as low as 1.11 W/m2K when calculated as a CEN Standard door.
To support Senior’s extensive range of thermally-efficient aluminium fenestration solutions, the company can offer in-house technical support including help with meeting thermal, acoustic and carbon targets, as well as providing practical advice on how to create long-term sustainable fenestration solutions and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.
