As the popularity of coloured aluminium fenestration products continues to rise, Senior Architectural Systems has invested an additional £200k in its in-house powder-coating facility, to improve the quality of its finishes.
Senior already boasts one of the most technically advanced and environmentally efficient powder-coating facilities in the UK, and this latest investment is set to further enhance the service the leading manufacturer offers its customers.
The recently completed improvement works include the complete overhaul of the existing vertical paint line, which has been updated with the latest parts, lubrication systems, control panels and track.
Combined with Senior’s horizontal paint line, which is ideal for the quick turnaround of small batch coatings, the improved vertical paint line will now be able to coat on average 12,000 aluminium profiles per week.
Commenting on the recent improvements, Senior’s production manager Mark Burton, commented: “As a company we are committed to giving our customers what they want, when they want it, and this latest investment in our in-house facility has been driven by the growing demand for powder-coated products.
“We have increased production levels and improved quality control which will help us deliver reliable results every time.
“The improvement works took place over the course of just one week and we are delighted to be back up and running and working on orders!”
Ideally placed to meet the requirements of larger commercial contracts, Senior has also encountered an increase in demand for coloured doors and windows in the domestic residential sector.
To support trade installers and their customers even further, Senior has developed its Signature colour guide to make it easier than ever to choose from the most popular shades.
As Senior can powder coat its aluminium products in an almost limitless spectrum of colours, it is easy to create standard RAL colours or more bespoke designs.
Senior’s advanced powder-coating offering also includes a number of high-performance finishes that help to boost the already impressive durability and strength of aluminium by giving the fenestration systems improved resistance from weathering and corrosion.
Contractors can choose from standard matt, satin or gloss finishes or for a traditional metallic look, anodised and mill finishes are also available.
In keeping with the latest architectural design trends, Senior is also able to provide guidance on the new generation of bespoke decorative and textured finishes, as well as specialist coatings such as those that offer anti-bacterial properties or higher resistance to exposure to UV light and humidity.
