ALUMINIUMEXTRA 4. AS SEEN ON TV The popularity of Senior’s windows, doors and curtain walling systems has seen them used on a variety of different buildings across a variety of different sectors, meaning you never have to look too far to see the company’s products in action. Every now and again, you can also spot Senior’s products on TV, particularly on property renovation programmes such as ‘Grand Designs’. Members from Senior’s architectural advisory team have also been busy over the last few months providing products and support for a forthcoming ‘DIY SOS: Big Build’ special that will be aired over the summer. 5. PURE® GENIUS If you’ve been looking for low U-value aluminium windows and doors, you have probably come across Senior’s PURe® range but did you know that it is the first on the UK market to benefit from an enhanced thermal barrier manufactured from expanded polyurethane foam (PUR) which is traditionally used in cladding and insulation products? Senior was awarded a UK patent for its PURe® system in 2016 and is looking to add new products to range in the next few months – watch this space… 6. GOING GREEN As well as developing energy-efficient glazing solutions, Senior is committed to reducing its own carbon footprint and a trip to Senior’s HQ will show you just a few of the initiatives in place. Recent investments include an in-house PUR processing line, a more efficient grey water system to recycle water used in manufacture and a new £150k waste reducing powder coating line which is the most environmentally efficient of its kind, saving over 22 tonnes per year of product being sent to landfill. 7. COMMUNITY SPIRIT When Senior is not developing new product innovations and sustainable manufacturing techniques to help protect the environment, it is looking at ways to improve its local community. From sponsoring local sports clubs and events to meeting up with MPs and Government advisors to discuss the importance of the manufacturing industry to the local economy, Senior takes its responsibilities as a major employee in the South Yorkshire area very seriously. The company is also proactively involved with a number of local schools, helping to address the skills shortage by offering work experience placements and raising the profile of the fenestration and construction industry through various events. One such event saw Senior team up with a local high school to run a special art competition where pupils created designs for ‘Buildings of the Future’, resulting in the creation of some inspirational artwork that is now proudly on display at Senior’s HQ.
