Senior Architectural Systems has added further flexibility to its PURe range of ultra-low U-value aluminium windows with the development of a new parallel push option.
Designed to offer balanced air flow and ventilation with maximum safety, the restricted opening of the PURe parallel push aluminium windows makes them ideally suited to a wide range of sectors including education, healthcare, and high-rise commercial and residential developments.
Benefitting from a patented thermal barrier manufactured from expanded polyurethane (PUR) foam, the new PURe parallel push aluminium window, like the rest of the range, offers low U-values and high thermal performance. The new window option is able to receive double or triple glazing up to 57mm for maximum thermal and acoustic performance and can achieve U-values as low as 0.90 W/m²K when calculated as a commercial CEN standard window.
With hinges on all sides of the frame, the window can be easily pushed open and yet will remain parallel to the wall. This enables rooms to be safely ventilated, with the limited opening helping to reduce the risk of falls from the window. Aesthetically, the use of push parallel style windows can also help to create a more uniform façade and the new PURe window option is fully compatible with the full range of Senior’s slim profile aluminium curtain walling system for seamless integration.
The new parallel push option is the latest configuration to be added to Senior’s popular PURe aluminium window range, with existing options including casement, tilt and turn and reversible overswing. Thanks to Senior’s reliable and high-quality in-house powder coating service, all of the company’s aluminium fenestration solutions can also be specified in an almost limitless spectrum of colours and a vast array of finishes.
Easy to fabricate and install and boasting excellent weather performance and security credentials, the new PURe parallel push aluminium window is also highly durable and easy to maintain, with a life expectancy in excess of 40 years.
