Senior Architectural Systems has added further choice to its popular range of aluminium residential patio doors with the launch of the new PURe Slide SL – a slimline version of the company’s patented sliding door which offers some of lowest U-values available.
Developed to meet the growing demand for slim profile aluminium systems that offer wider views and maximum daylight, the new PURe Slide SL features a narrow 50mm interlock. Despite boasting an interlock design that is nearly half the width of the standard PURe Slide door, the new PURe Slide SL still offers what Senior describes as ‘exceptional’ thermal efficiency, security and is available in the same large spans and weights.
Thanks to the design of Senior’s patented PURe system, which features an expanded polyutherane (PUR) thermal barrier, the new PURe Slide SL aluminium door can achieve U-values as low as 1.08 W/m2K when calculated as a CEN Standard door. As well as remaining compliant with the security requirements of PAS 24 and being fully weather tested, the new slimline sliding door is available in both inline slide and lift & slide configurations.
Further design flexibility is offered through Senior’s in-house powder coating facility, allowing an almost unlimited choice of colours both inside and out. The new PURe Slide SL aluminium door is also available with a choice of chamfered and square beads or a combination of the two. Precision engineered so the sliding door effortlessly glides open, the new door option has, like all of Senior’s products, been expertly developed to be both easy to fabricate and install.
Senior’s sales director, James Keeling-Heane, said: “Our residential product offering continues to go from strength to strength and in response to the growing demand for slimmer sliding doors that offer larger glazed areas and uninterrupted sightlines, we are delighted to add the new PURe Slide SL door to our range. We have made sure that we have plenty of stock already available in our warehouse so our customers can take advantage of this new product offering as soon as possible.”
“Of course, the standard PURe Slide door including the heavy-duty lift & slide option will remain available for projects where a more robust or higher traffic option is required. We’re committed to giving our customers what they want, when they want it and with the new PURe Slide SL we are doing just that!”
The new PURe Slide SL aluminium sliding door is the latest option to be added to Senior’s patented low U-value PURe range, which also includes the popular PURe Fold doors and a variety of window options including traditional casement and tilt and turn as well as reversable, overswing and parallel push option. The stylish PURe doors also perfectly compliment Senior’s slimline Ali VU aluminium window which has been specifically developed for use in the domestic residential sector.
