Senior Architectural Systems is making it easier than ever for trade contractors to take advantage of the growing trend for coloured and textured aluminium profiles thanks to its state-of-the-art in-house powder coating facility and technical support services.
As the UK’s largest privately-owned aluminium fenestration systems manufacturer, Senior has invested heavily to ensure that vital services can be offered in-house rather than outsourced. Key to this is the company’s powder coating facility in South Yorkshire which is not only the most technically advanced of its kind but also the most efficient, with the new waste reducing paint line helping to significantly reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
By being able to powder coat all its extensive range of aluminium doors, windows and curtain walling profiles in-house, Senior can offer its trade customers a quick turnaround, consistent performance and reliable nationwide delivery service.
Senior can powder coat its aluminium products in an almost limitless spectrum of colours, helping contractors to find the perfect match whether they are looking for standard RAL colours or more bespoke designs. With full technical support available, Senior has also developed its Signature colour guide to make it easier than ever to choose from both traditional and popular shades.
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.
Commenting, James Keeling-Heane, sales director from Senior Architectural Systems said: “There is a huge demand for powder-coated aluminium profiles in both the commercial and domestic sector and we understand that to use a separate supplier for this service can bring a risk of delays and extra costs. That’s why we have always been keen to keep such services in-house as by streamlining the supply chain in this way, we can add even more value to our customers’ business.”
