Hardwearing, reliable and efficient – aluminium fenestration solutions can bring multiple benefits to the education sector and specifiers can also enjoy design flexibility and the attractive finish of timber, with Senior Architectural Systems‘ innovative Hybrid range.
Senior’s stunning Hybrid windows, doors and curtain wall systems combine robust aluminium externally with sustainable sourced timber on the inside of the frame.
Attractive and stylish, the Hybrid range also offers exceptional thermal efficiency, making it perfect for use in educational settings where a more natural and comfortable environment is desired.
Senior’s Hybrid fenestration solutions have been used to great effect at the Robert Mays School in Odiham, Hampshire, which is one of the latest education contracts to be delivered by Senior, together with long-term supply chain partners Morgan Sindall and Soundcraft.
In response to the school’s growing intake, a new two-storey building has been created to offer additional facilities, including classrooms and a library.
The new teaching block features Senior’s timber aluminium Hybrid curtain wall system, which has been integrated with the Hybrid Series 3 casement windows to achieve an attractive flush finish.
The choice of the Hybrid system was also inspired by the desire to ensure the fenestration package would complement the history and heritage of the school (first established in the 1600s) whilst offering a high-performance solution appropriate for the demands and requirements of a modern-day building.
Made from 100% recyclable aluminium and a choice of responsibly sourced engineered spruce or oak, Senior’s Hybrid range is a sustainable, as well as being stylish.
