As one of the pioneers of energy-efficient aluminium windows and doors, Senior Architectural Systems, the UK’s largest privately owned systems house, can now offer customers a range of fenestration solutions that utilise Hydro low carbon recycled aluminium.
Senior’s full range of products, including the company’s patented low U-value PURe® system, can now be extruded using Hydro low carbon recycled aluminium made from post-consumer scrap materials. As this aluminium is predominantly produced in the UK, its lower carbon footprint made it the perfect choice for Senior who also manufacturers its full suite of aluminium windows, doors, and curtain wall systems at its dedicated facilities in South Yorkshire.
As all of Senior’s aluminium fenestration systems are fully recyclable, the use of post-consumer recycled aluminium at the extrusion stage provides a ‘cradle to cradle’ approach and further strengthens Senior’s ongoing commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its manufacturing processes and products. Drawing on over 30 years of technical expertise, Senior has invested in its product range to offer a wide choice of thermally-efficient and Part L complaint low U-value fenestration solutions. The company has also made several improvements to its main UK manufacturing facility such as grey water recovery, the greater use of electric vehicles in its delivery fleet and the investment of an in-house state of the art waste reducing powder coating facility. Senior is also fully accredited to BRE Global’s BES 6001 standard which ensures all its building materials and products meet the growing requirements of sustainable construction, both in terms of their social and environmental impact.
