Senior’s PURe window range benefits 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.

Reduce CO2 calculations without increasing costs

PURe system is competitively priced allowing main contractors to reduce the CO2 calculations without increasing costs.

By far exceeding the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations and providing a significant reduction from the typical U-values of 1.75-1.9w/m2k achieved by Senior’s standard SPW600 aluminium window system, the enhanced thermal performance of the PURe range can significantly improve a project’s carbon footprint.

Senior’s sales director James Keeling-Heane:  “Although calculations vary on different projects, the positive feedback we are getting from main contractors is that the fantastic u-values that can be achieved through the use of the new PURe system can help reduce CO2 calculations by up to 3%. This is then giving the project team the opportunity to look at making additional savings in the overall build cost by reducing the need for features such as photovoltaic roof panels or expensive under floor insulation. As there is little price difference between the new PURe range and our standard aluminium windows and yet a significant improvement in thermal performance, the benefits that the specification of PURe can bring to a project are huge.”
