Senior offers low carbon aluminium

Senior Architectural Systems 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 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.

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 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.
