Senior innovation earns King’s Award recognition

SENIOR Architectural Systems has become one of the first winners of the King’s Award for Enterprise.

The manufacturer of aluminium fenestration solutions has been honoured in the innovation category in recognition of the design, development, and delivery of its PURe aluminium window system that features a patented thermal barrier to reduce heat loss.

Senior is one of only 148 organisations nationwide to have been recognised with the King’s Award for Enterprise. The award celebrates business excellence across the UK, focusing on the four categories of innovation, sustainable development, international trade, and the promotion of opportunity through social mobility.

Senior said its PURe window system can achieve U-values as low as 0.71W/m2K when calculated as a commercial CEN Standard window to meet the latest targets set out by Part L of the Building Regulations.

Senior MD Mark Wadsworth said, “We are delighted to have received such a prestigious accolade and to be amongst the first ever winners of the King’s Award for Enterprise. I am particularly proud that Senior has been recognised in the innovation category as our investment in improving the efficiency of our products, as well as our commitment to developing more sustainable manufacturing processes, is at the very heart of who we are and what we do.

“We are constantly pushing forward in the research and development of our aluminium fenestration solutions to not only meet the current regulations on energy efficiency and heat loss but to exceed them, helping our customers future-proof their projects and create a more sustainable legacy for the construction industry. The King’s Award for Enterprise recognises the progress we have made but is also a reflection of the hard work and expertise of all our employees and that is something to be extremely proud of.”
