Senior invests in its in-house powder coating facility

  • 26 Jan 2024

It’s out with the old and in with the new at Senior Architectural Systems‘ HQ, as the leading aluminium fenestration systems manufacturer unveils several upgrades which will make its state of the art powder coating facility even more sustainable.

By utilising the latest gas burner technology and high performance insulation materials, Senior will be able to significantly reduce the gas consumption required for its powder coating process.

Senior has also installed the latest automated profile handing conveyor system which will work with the advanced powder coating technology from Gema that is already in place to further boost productivity.


These latest investments follow on from the significant IT process updates that have been recently made to Senior’s vertical powder coating line. These have given Senior full control and greater flexibility of the pre-treatment and curing capabilities of its vertical powder coating line and has also helped contribute to lower gas usage.

Environmentally friendly

Located within the company’s main UK manufacturing facility in Denaby, South Yorkshire, Senior’s powder coating facility is already one of the most environmentally friendly of its kind, reducing waste and significant amounts of excess product being sent to landfill each year.

The in-house facility, which also supports the products manufactured at its nearby Thermal Improvement Centre in Rotherham, allows Senior to better meet the demands of its customers by eliminating the need to outsource and reducing the risk of delays to project timelines.

Embodied carbon through transportation is also reduced as Senior can consolidate deliveries across its extensive range of aluminium windows, doors and curtain wall systems.

The new upgrades will improve both the operational and environmental efficiency of Senior’s powder coating facility and will also help increase capacity. As well as offering an almost unlimited range of colours and coatings, including specialist solutions such as anti-bacterial and UV resistant finishes, Senior can now also provide a new ultra matt powder paint coating from Akzo Nobel.

This new paint option is a cost-effective alternative to anodised aluminium, giving a more consistent finish, superior colour retention and enhanced durability. Senior’s aluminium fenestration systems, finished in this new ultra matt coating, are currently being installed at a new commercial office project in Manchester which is at present the largest live project in the UK to utilise this new powder coating innovation.
