Targets hit

Senior Architectural Systems’ Pure aluminium windows work with the new lower U-value targets the company has reported, potentially achieving U-values as low as 0.71W/m2K when calculated as a CEN commercial standard window.

Senior’s Pure aluminium window system has been developed and refined through collaboration with the company’s fabricator base to ensure that it is simple to fabricate, install and maintain, the company said.

Also, the system doesn’t require any special tooling or training. It is also competitively priced, representing excellent value for money and significantly out-performing standard systems in terms of its thermal efficiency, the company said.

Senior’s Pure aluminium windows have been constructed using mitred corners, joined with crimped or mechanical cleats. The system also features alignment chevrons to assist in achieving clean and accurate mitres and in line with good practice, a propriety sealant is used on all metal joints. For further ease of fabrication, the system’s integral transoms and mullions are scribed around the outer frames and fixed with either screw ports or shear blocks.

Senior’s Pure range of aluminium windows are available in a variety of styles and configurations, including casement, tilt and turn, overswing reversible and parallel push opening, each able to achieve low U-values that exceed current building regulations.

The Pure aluminium window system is also available in a wide range of colours and finishes via Senior’s in-house powder-coating facility.
