System Senior Architectural Systems’ SPW600e aluminium fixed light windows and SPW501 aluminium doors

Aluminium windows and doors from leading fenestration manufacturer Senior Architectural Systems have been chosen for the new X1 Aire private rented scheme (PRS) in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Located in the heart of Leeds city centre, the glazing package for the new residential scheme has been delivered by Aire Valley Architectural Aluminium Ltd for main contractor Bardsley Construction. Senior’s thermally broken SPW600e aluminium fixed light windows were specified to offer extra security and improved thermal efficiency, with Senior’s robust SPW501 aluminium doors installed to the ground floor communal entrance.

The acoustic performance of Senior’s SPW600e aluminium windows has been enhanced through the use of special acoustic double glazing which helps to reduce the traffic noise from the nearby main road. Maximising the flow of natural light, Senior’s aluminium windows also provide residents with attractive views of the River Aire and complement the brickwork façade of the building.

Comprising some 147 high quality apartments and five penthouses, the new X1 Aire scheme is the latest addition to the portfolio of UK based developer X1 and has been designed by DK Architects.
