Senior Architectural Systems is anticipating an increase in demand for its automatic aluminium door solutions as more business and facilities look for cost-effective ways to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
High-traffic touch points like door handles can become a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses and as a result, require regular cleaning. Automatic doors can provide a safe and secure solution and Senior Architectural Systems is on hand to advise both specifiers and fabricators on choosing the most appropriate system for their needs.
In partnership with supply chain partner Autodoor Projects UK, Senior’s aluminium doors systems can be fabricated to utilise innovative hardware such as wave-activated touchless entry and exit pads. Other entrance system options that can be offered to help building owners navigate the new COVID-19 regulations include the use of facial and thermal recognition cameras, and people-counting monitors to help manage occupancy levels.
Such solutions are fully compatible with Senior’s extensive range of aluminium doors which are available in a variety of configurations and styles. Already a popular choice as main entrance doors, Senior’s automatic doors can also be used internally to help further limit the risk of contamination within a building. Aluminium door systems are also robust and durable, making them easy and cost-effective to maintain.
Slimline automatic aluminium doors can not only improve daylighting but can also help reduce heat loss within a building and as energy-efficiency continues to be a primary concern, Senior’ patented PURe® Commercial Door is a popular and versatile choice. Benefiting from the same sleek slim sightlines and patented PUR thermal break as Senior’s popular low U-value PURe® aluminium windows and patio doors, the new PURe® Commercial Door provides a secure and efficient solution for medium and high traffic areas where frequent access is required.
Designed to perform up to a maximum leaf size of 1400mm x 3000mm and 180Kg, the robust PURe® Commercial door system can achieve U-Values as low as 0.94 W/m2 K when calculated as a CEN Standard door and is able to receive double or triple glazing from 28-60mm for maximum thermal and acoustic performance. The system also features a range of thresholds and rebates, including a double rebated low threshold option to comply with the accessibility requirements outlined in Part M of the Building Regulations.
Fully compatible with Senior’s extensive range of aluminium windows and curtain walling systems, the new PURe® Commercial Door can be specified in an almost unlimited choice of colours and finishes both inside and out, thanks to Senior’s in-house powder coating facility.
