The PURe range of energy-efficient windows and doors by Senior Architectural Systems has been awarded a UK patent. The range is the first in the UK to feature an enhanced thermal barrier manufactured from expanded polyurethane foam (PUR).
The PURe window was first launched in 2015 and has been received positively by both fabricators and specifiers.
The system is manufactured from PUR, traditionally used in cladding and insulation, to give the PURe range the potential to achieve U-values as low as 0.71W/m2K when calculated as a commercial CEN standard window and 0.93W/m2K when calculated as a CEN standard door.
Since launch the range has been expanded to incorporate a door system which includes folding sliding, inline sliding, lift & slide, single and double options.
Senior Architectural Systems’ technical director Mark Wheatley commented that the company is ‘delighted’ that the PURe range has been award a UK patent (UK Patent Number GB252363.8).
He said: “Both the PURe windows and doors have been carefully developed, utilising the optimum amount of PUR insulation to offer excellent thermal performance with the potential to achieve the lowest possible U-values.
The competitive price of the range, along with its ease of fabrication, have also contributed to its successful launch and now that this important milestone of gaining a UK patent has been achieved, we are confident our PURe fenestration system will continue to go from strength to strength.”
