Senior Architectural Systems’ range of high-performance products includes PURe, a revolutionary new aluminium window and door system that is the first on the UK market to benefit from an enhanced thermal barrier made from expanded polyurethane foam (PUR)
Traditionally used in cladding and insulation products, the innovative use of PUR as a thermal barrier in windows gives the PURe system the potential to achieve U-values as low as 0.71w/m2k when calculated as a commercial CEN standard window. Available as sliding folding, inline sliding, lift and slide, single and double patio door options, the new PURe door can also offer exceptionally low U-values of 0.93w/m2k when calculated as a CEN standard sliding folding door.
Manufactured using aluminium, which offers ‘cradle to cradle’ recycling, the PUR thermal barrier can be re-used as fillers for other products, with no requirement for landfill. By far exceeding the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations, the enhanced thermal performance of the PURe range can significantly improve a project’s carbon footprint and contribute towards achieving higher BREEAM ratings. With a generic Green Guide rating of ‘A’ for use in commercial projects and a life expectancy in excess of 40 years, Senior Architectural's most recent product innovation has also been designed to meet the Passivhaus standard cycle.
Offering slim sightlines across the full portfolio and available in a range of standard finishes, both painted and anodised, the new PURe range of windows and doors is ideally suited for use across the sectors, from education to healthcare, commercial to domestic, refurbishment and new build projects.
