Award-winning Dekko Window Systems are adding stylish aluminium windows to their much-celebrated Räum Collection.

Launched to great acclaim in 2015, Dekko’s Räum Collection range originally consisted of sleek, high-performing aluminium doors, inspired by the outstanding quality and design of German manufacturing.

Seeing increasing demand for high-end home improvement products from increasingly discerning end users, Dekko has now responded by adding window products that it hopes will help installers capitalise on that trend.

Dekko Sales Director Kurt Greatrex commented: “The original Räum Collection proved so successful it was inevitable that we would add windows to the range at some stage. We’ve based them on the Reynaers profile – renowned for its strength, style and fantastic energy efficiency. Now, our trade customers can offer homeowners a complete package of high-end aluminium.”

The new Räum Collection windows will be among the array of best-in-class products Dekko will be bringing to Birmingham in May, when it makes its FIT Show debut. Numerous examples of the fabricator’s cutting-edge Infinity uPVC corner-welding process will also be on display. Faithfully replicating traditional timber with all the benefits of state-of-the-art uPVC, Infinity combines A+ rated energy efficiency and British Standard PAS24-accredited security with one of the smoothest corner welds on the market.

“The FIT Show offers us the perfect platform to introduce Räum Collection windows to the industry,” Kurt continues. “We all know it’s getting harder for installers to stand out in an increasingly competitive market, and a full suite of stylish, robust, thermally excellent aluminium window and door products offer them a fantastic way to do that. We look forward to sharing more about them at the FIT Show in May – but if you’ve got any questions in the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch!”

Dekko Windows Systems was founded in 2008 by Gary Torr and Kurt Greatrex, and is one of the leading fabricators of high-end uPVC and aluminium windows and doors. Based in Ashton-Under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, Dekko Window Systems was listed in the 2016 edition of the London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. The report celebrates the fastest growing small and medium sized businesses in the UK.

Dekko grows premium door range with Deceuninck’s Slider 24

Deceuninck's Slider 24 now available at Dekko Windows

Fast-growing fabricator Dekko Window Systems has expanded an already industry-leading door offering with the addition of Deceuninck’s Slider 24.

Designed as a best-in-class sliding door solution, the Slider 24 was the result of exhaustive research carried out by Deceuninck’s R & D division. They extensively tested leading sliding doors already on the market, examining them in detail, with the aim of producing a product that surpassed them in all areas.

The resulting door delivers A+-rated energy efficiency, PAS24-accredited security, and market-leading weather resistance performance – Slider 24 achieves Class E8A water permeability with a rating of 450Pa, Class A3 wind resistance of 1200Pa and Class A4 air permeability with a rating of 600Pa.

Kurt Greatrex, Sales Director for Dekko commented: “Over the past few years, we’ve invested extensively in expanding our premium door offering, to the extent that it’s now one of the most impressive in the UK. First, we introduced our Räum collection of top-of-the-range doors – and now we’ve increased customer choice even further, with another great patio door that offers superb weather resistance, robust security, and comes in a stunning range of colours. There’s huge appetite out there for this kind of product, and we predict Slider 24 will go on to be one of the most popular products in its class.”

Dekko’s much-celebrated Räum collection is comprised of a number of luxurious high-end doors, including the Glieten range of aluminium bifold doors and the Terassi range of patio doors. The Glieten 77 is the most premium bifold door in the Räum range, boasting PAS24 Secured By Design accreditation, along with air, wind and water resistance up to 600Pa, balancing performance with a sleek, stylish premium design.

Dekko Window Systems was founded in 2008 by Gary Torr and Kurt Greatrex and has firmly established itself as one of the UK’s leading Residence 9 and Deceuninck fabricators. Operating from its 50,000 square foot facility in Ashton-under-Lyne, Dekko was recently named one of the 1,000 Businesses to Inspire Britain by the London Stock Exchange.

Dekko’s Infinity frames help Emerald Windows go from strength to strength

Raum Infinity Frame

Swindon-based Emerald Windows has quickly established itself as one of the leading home improvement brands in the South of England – and now, the fast-growing firm has begun offering Dekko Window System’s ground-breaking Infinity range of seamlessly-welded PVCu.

Unlike normal PVCu window and door frames that feature a 3.5mm corner groove, Infinity frames are manufactured using a state of the art graph welding machine to achieve a choice of superior finishes – a totally smooth, seamless corner join on all laminated profiles, and a thinner, more subtle 1.5mm line on all non-laminated ones.

“With its sleek-looking smooth-cornered frames, Infinity provides us with a valuable USP that really helps us stand out in the increasingly crowded PVCu market,” commented Emerald managing director Martin Brett.

The decision to adopt Infinity comes as Emerald cements its relationship with Dekko – most notably by beginning to offer Deceuninck PVCu products through the Ashton-Under-Lyne based fabricator.

“Deceuninck always carry 26 colourways from stock, and this in turn means Dekko are able to offer us a very fast turnaround on coloured windows and doors,” Martin continued. “Demand for coloured frames is increasing all the time so the combination of a wide colour choice and fast turnaround is very appealing.”

Dekko Sales Director Kurt Greatrex commented: “Emerald are a fantastic company to work with, and a natural fit for our business. We’re delighted they’re now offering Deceuninck and our exclusive range of Infinity windows and doors, and we’re looking forward to working with them more closely in the weeks and months ahead.”

Established in 1998, Dekko Window Systems is one of the UK’s most respected fabricators of aluminium and high-end PVCu doors and windows. The firm was recently named as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain in the 2016 London Stock Exchange report, and operates from a state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Ashton-Under Lyne.

Emerald Windows offer windows, doors and conservatories from their Swindon headquarters, servicing Reading, Bath, Bristol, Marlborough, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and other areas within an hour’s radius of Swindon.

Dekko prepares for exciting product launch with acquisition of Seamless Quad Welder

Dekko Prepares Product Launch

Fast-growing Dekko Window Systems has become of one the UK’s first trade fabricators to invest in a state-of-the-art SL4FF Seamless Quad Welder from Italian machinery manufacturer Graf Synergy, announcing its intention to launch an exclusive new window and door range made with the equipment in the New Year.
The advanced machinery incorporates a patented ceramic heater plate that ‘zip welds’ the corner joints and allows for the precise placement of the welded sprue, delivering a smooth, seamless finish without any groove.

Sales director Kurt Greatrex comments: “The Seamless Quad Welder provides a completely new way to manufacture window and door frames. Not only will we improve our productivity by up to 200%, we can produce a stronger corner weld and quite sumptuous finish that I’m sure will prove popular in the higher end of the market. We’re really keen for our customers to embrace this product, which is why we’re in the process of opening a new showroom and producing premium quality marketing material ready for the official launch in January 2016.”

New innovations driving the fabrication and installation industry

Dekko’s new acquisition is just the latest development from a fabricator renowned throughout the industry for its willingness to innovate and launch high end products. Dekko were one of the first in the UK to offer Residence 9, the timber alternative flush casement window that has taken the industry by storm, and recently introduced Räum, a new range of aluminium and uPVC doors based on the Reynaers and Deceuninck systems.

“We’ve had a fantastic few years at Dekko – growing massively off the back of increased demand for Residence 9, and creating a social media sensation with the enigmatic teaser publicity campaign that preceded the launch of Räum,” said Kurt. “Earlier this year, we also opened our new 55,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Ashton-Under-Lyne, giving us the infrastructure to continue our growth into the future.”

Launched in 2008, Dekko Window Systems has quickly become one of the UK’s leading fabricators of high-end uPVC and aluminium windows and doors, offering products from Deceuninck, Kommerling, Residence 9 and Reynaers, as well as its own exclusive Räum collection, featuring aluminium bi-folds and patio doors and uPVC patio doors. Dekko were recently announced as a Construction Marketing Awards finalist, making the shortlist in the Best Use of Press and Public Relations category for the launch of Räum.

Company behind Räum is revealed

Revealing the mysterious and exciting new Raum

The company behind Räum, the mysterious new brand that has been creating much debate and speculation within the industry, has been revealed as Lancashire based fabricator Dekko Window Systems.

Räum is the brand name for Dekko’s new range of high-end doors designed to help installers capitalise on opportunities at the higher end of the market. The collection includes two aluminium bi-folding doors, three aluminium patio doors, a PVC-u patio door and a slide and swing door. All aluminium products are based on the Reynaers system, and all PVC-u doors are based on Deceuninck.

Dekko sales director Kurt Greatrex discusses Räum in more detail and explains the thinking behind the Germanic brand name: “Räum doors have a strong European design influence, and one of the key benefits is how they create space and light within the home. For example, each vent in the Räum Gleiten77 bi-folding door can measure up to 1200×3000 – making it the ideal door for truly spectacular projects. Räum means ‘space’ in German and encapsulates the message we want to communicate. Now we have officially launched the brand, stage two of our strategy is to team up with likeminded installers that want to sell these premium products. I would urge any companies that are interested to get in touch.”

As part of the launch, Dekko have created a new website, complete with stunning images of Räum installations. The website incorporates an online bi-fold builder, enabling installers to input their desired specifications and send over to Dekko for a price.
