A range of aluminium glazing solutions from Senior Architectural Systems have featured in a visually spectacular new technology centre for Leicestershire based motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield.
Designed by LE1 Architects, the striking two storey research and development facility features a highly glazed façade created by leading fabricator and installer Unique Window Systems Ltd for main contractor Stepnell.
Patrick Marston, marketing manager at Unique Windows Systems Ltd, commented: “Senior Architectural Systems provide an excellent range of aluminum products for us to fabricate from.
“We often have complex budget and performance requirements from our customers to consider and Senior have a portfolio of products that means we can offer our clients an array of options to best suit.”
With maximising the flow of natural light whilst guaranteeing a comfortable working environment essential, the attractive slim sightlines and enhanced thermal performance of Senior’s popular SF52 aluminium curtain wall system proved ideal for the building’s captivating glazed entrance.
To finish the fenestration work, Senior’s slim profile thermally-broken SPW300 aluminium windows were also requested, alongside Senior’s high-performance SPW500 and SPW501 aluminium doors, ideally suited to high traffic applications.
Previous successful contracts with Senior meant Unique Windows Systems Ltd recommended the company’s products for this prestigious project, where achieving the desired visuals and performance was crucial.
The strong yet slim profile of Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall and SPW300 aluminium windows have created the sleek, modern allure that both architect and client hoped for, with the low U-values offered by both systems contributing to the energy-efficiency of the building.
