Senior’s glazing gives luxury car showroom a sleek design

Aluminium curtain walling, windows and doors from Senior Architectural Systems are helping to drive sales at the new Mercedes Benz Inchcape car showroom in Cheshire Oaks, Ellesmere Port,  by providing a highly visible and attractive glazed façade.

Installed and fabricated by Crystal Architectural Aluminium for main contractor Hantall Developments, the new car showroom has been designed by Fletcher Smith Architects.  The main facade benefits from Senior’s popular SF52 aluminium curtain walling which is ideally suited for use in the retail sector thanks to its attractive slim sightlines that maximise the scale of Ellesmere Port, the building and perfectly showcase both the company’s brand and the cars on display.

As well as offering enhanced thermal efficiency to contribute to a more comfortable internal environment for customers, the low U-values that the SF52 aluminium curtain wall system offers can also help to reduce the overall carbon calculations of car showroom schemes that are traditionally heavily dependent on the use of artificial lighting and air conditioning.

Senior’s SF52 curtain walling has been further complemented by the use of its SPW600 aluminium windows and commercial SD doors, which together help to provide a light and welcoming space for customers.

Local MP visits powder-coater

Leading aluminium powder-coater Powdertech Corby was visited recently by local MP, Tom Pursglove.

Tom, one of the youngest MPs in the Commons, won the Corby and East Northamptonshire seat in the 2015 General Election, and retained it in 2017.

During his visit, Tom met with Powdertech Corby’s Richard Besant and Giles Ashmead, who is also Aluminium Federation President, and with Ian Oliver from the Aluminium Federation. He was also given a guided tour of the Powdertech Corby plant, including its new ‘chrome-free’ pretreatment facility.
