Senior Architectural Systems makes window ventilation a breeze

  • 23 May 2024

Meeting the individual ventilation requirements of different buildings can be a challenge, which is why leading aluminium fenestration solutions manufacturer Senior Architectural Systems has developed a range of specialist products including a Louvre Guard system and automatic opening ventilation (AOV) aluminium windows.

Senior’s Louvre Guard system is a stylish aluminium louvre which is compatible with the inward opening designs of the company’s popular SPW600 and PURe® windows. It is ideal for high-rise buildings where ventilation strategies must address the need to reduce the risk of occupants falling from windows.

Easy to install, Senior’s Louvre Guard comprises an external adaptor and oval shaped blades which are fixed to the outside of an inward opening window. The system can be fixed through the face of the window or through a bespoke coupling mullion to maintain the thermal barrier.


Available either in anodised silver or bronze, or in any standard RAL colour, Senior’s Louvre Guard system adds an extra design element to give any building a distinctive look. The blades can be positioned horizontally or at any angle up to 45 degrees in either direction, and has been tested to 3kN for barrier loading at a maximum blade span of 1000mm.


Senior can also offer a high performance aluminium window system with automatic opening ventilation (AOV). Based on the same aesthetic design as the manufacturer’s popular SPW600 aluminium window system, Senior’s AOV version is fitted with a smart actuator which allows for quick and automatic ventilation in the event of a fire to help to remove smoke from the air.

The three chamber 75mm polyamide window system has been designed to achieve impressive thermal performance and is available in a wide range of colours and can be top, side or bottom hung.
