Senior makes a grand entrance in Bristol

  • 4 Jan 2021

Senior Architectural Systems’ slimline aluminium curtain walling and its strongest aluminium commercial door systems to date have helped create a fenestration package at a new leisure centre in Bristol.

Fabricated and installed by supply chain partner Elite Aluminium Systems, Senior supplied both its SF52 aluminium curtain wall system and high-performance PURe® Commercial Door for use at the David Lloyd Leisure Centre in Emmerson Green, Bristol. 

The new centre, which has been designed by Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson and constructed by main contractor Pellikaan, also holds the accolade of being the 100th David Lloyd club to open in the UK and, as a flagship facility, boasts a stylish and high-performance fenestration design.

Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system was the ideal choice for creating the centre’s attractive façade and to help maximise the use of natural light in the interior design. 

Offering enhanced thermal-efficiency and high weather performance, the flexibility of the system also enables larger spans of glazing to be created.

Another feature of the main entrance is Senior’s PURe® Commercial Door, which is the manufacturer’s largest and strongest aluminium door system to date. Benefitting from the same patented PUR thermal break as Senior’s popular PURe® aluminium window system, the PURe® Commercial Door can achieve U-Values as low as 0.94 W/m2 K when calculated as a CEN Standard door and provides a secure and efficient solution for medium and high traffic areas. 

Other internal and external access points have been created using complementary commercial doors options from Senior, with the automatic SD aluminium doors and versatile SPW501 systems completing the package.
