Glazing systems designer and manufacturer Senior Architectural Systems has launched PURe, a revolutionary new aluminium window system that can help specifiers achieve exceptionally low U-values and high thermal performances.

The new patent-pending PURe window range is the first on the UK market to benefit from an enhanced thermal barrier manufactured 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. The PURe system is also both fully recyclable and safe to handle.

Designed to exceed current and meet future requirements, the PURe range is easy to manufacture using existing tools to provide the simplest yet most effective solution to the specification of thermal-efficient windows. With a generic Green Guide rating of ‘A’ for use in commercial projects and a life expectancy in excess of 40 years, Senior’s most recent product innovation has also been designed to meet the PassivHaus standard cycle.

Both double and triple glazing options, up to 50mm to maximise thermal and acoustic performance, are catered for, with the additional support of specification via Senior’s dedicated glazing division Senior Glass Systems being available. With the reassurance of Senior’s established heritage as one of the pioneers of the UK fenestration industry, the new PURe range is breaking new ground in the development of thermally efficient window systems and yet is competitively priced.

Ideally suited for use across the sectors, from education to healthcare, commercial to domestic, refurbishment and new build projects, Senior’s PURe range also boasts a number of environmentally friendly features. Manufactured using aluminium, which offers ‘cradle to cradle’ recycling, the PUR thermal barrier can also be re-used as fillers for other products, with no requirement for landfill.

The PURe range is available in a range of standard finishes, both painted and anodised.
