New Building Regs Are Not A Chore With PuRe

Building regulation compliance doesn’t have to be a chore with thermally-efficient PURe aluminium windows says SAS which not only work with the new lower U-value targets but are also easy to work with.

Senior Architectural Systems' PURe has been developed and refined through collaboration with the company’s fabricator base to ensure that it is simple to fabricate, install and maintain.


 “We’ve always worked closely with our fabricators and installers to give them what they want, when they want it and we’re pleased that we’re ahead of the game in terms of offering our customers a compliant, low U-value aluminium window that not only complies with the new targets but is easy to work with.”

No special tools

"Despite its thermal-efficiency and PUR thermal barrier (which gives the system the potential to achieve U-values as low as 0.71 W/m2K when calculated as a CEN commercial standard window), the PURe window system doesn’t require any special tooling or training," adds Keeling-Heane.


Mitred corners

PURe windows are 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.


Decorative finishes

The windows are available in a variety of styles and configurations, including casement, tilt and turn, overswing reversible and parallel push opening. The system is also available in a wide range of colours and finishes via Senior’s in-house powder-coating facility.
