Senior Architectural Systems, the UK’s largest privately owned aluminium fenestration solutions manufacturer, has joined forces with leading composite door supplier Hallmark Doors and Panels Ltd to create a new residential entrance door that combines patented PURe® thermal-efficiency with PAS 24 security.
The two British based manufacturers have developed a robust external door option by combining Senior’s low U-value PURe® Commercial Door frame with Hallmark’s stylish aluminium doors panels. The innovative system has been fully tested to meet the security standards of PAS 24 and to offer exceptional energy-efficiency, making it the ideal choice for a residential entrance door.
The new front door option is available in a wide choice of designs from Hallmark’s extensive range of over 50 aluminium door panels which includes both classic and contemporary styles. This design flexibility is supported by the reliability of Senior’s established and patented PURe® technology, with the door frame benefitting from an impressive thermal barrier created using ultra-efficient polyurethane foam. The Hallmark door panels also feature an effective Raventherm thermal core for extra efficiency, with optional glazing trims.
For enhanced durability and appearance, Hallmark uses a four-stage pre-treatment process and cuts the door panels to size before powder coating to ensure a water tight seal to the edge of the aluminium skins.
Senior’s thermally-enhanced PURe® aluminium windows and patio door range has been widely installed across the residential sector and the PURe® Commercial Door, Senior’s largest and strongest door to date, has also made an impression thanks to its suitability for use as a main entrance system in high-rise apartment schemes. By teaming up with Hallmark Doors and Panels Ltd, Senior’s PURe® technology can be used across the full fenestration package for residential projects, with the added reassurance of meeting the highest security standards and full compliance with PAS 24.
Commenting on the new partnership, Senior’s sales director James Keeling-Heane said:
“We are excited to be embarking on this new partnership with Hallmark and to be able to bring our patented low U-value PURe® doors to a new type of residential customer. By being able to offer an efficient and attractive aluminium front door system we are continuing the evolution of our PURe® range and making stylish, secure and sustainable aluminium fenestration accessible to a wider market.”
Paul Spencer, sales director at Hallmark added:
“We are proud to be working in collaboration with Senior on this exciting venture. As the demand for full aluminium systems grows in the UK, together we can offer the trade and end users a comprehensive range of high-quality premium aluminium doors.”
The bespoke aluminium door panels can be ordered directly from Hallmark and then fitted into Senior’s PURe® Commercial Doors. Customers are advised to clearly state their requirements at the specification stage as this is not a standard product. Senior’s in-house team is also on hand offer technical support and guidance on the new front door option. Fabricators and installers are welcome to contact their local technical sales manager and specifiers, including architects, contractors, and developers, can speak with the regionally-based architectural advisory team for more information.
