Dekko inundated with leads following appearance on hit ITV show

Dekko's RAUM aluminium bi-fold door

Premium product fabricator Dekko Window Systems has been inundated with leads following an appearance on the hit ITV programme Love Your Home and Garden, which is hosted by renowned presenter Alan Titchmarsh.

Dekko’s luxurious RÄUM aluminium bi-folding doors featured prominently on the ‘Get the Look’ section of the programme, which shows a close up of key products and guide prices, and within minutes, enquiries came flooding into the RÄUM and Dekko websites. Dekko had over 100 leads on the night of the show, with more filtering in over the following days.

“We were delighted with the response,” commented Sales Director Kurt Greatrex. “Most enquiries were from homeowners, and we passed these on to our trade customers. Interestingly though, around 30% of the leads came from businesses such as installers, builders and joiners, so we were able to go direct to these customers ourselves.”

RAUM aluminium bi-folding doors

Dekko initially decided to get involved in the programme after hearing about the tragic circumstances of the family in Banbury that was going to feature in the episode.

Kurt explains: “The mother had gone almost entirely blind after suffering a stroke, and was then diagnosed with breast cancer, forcing her to leave her job. The house was completely unsuitable for her needs, and Alan Titchmarsh and his team wanted to design a layout that would let more natural light into the home and allow for an easy transition from the home into the garden. ITV asked if we could supply a set of RÄUM aluminium bi-folds and we were more than happy to help.”

The RÄUM aluminium bi-fold is a premium door features super slim sightlines and can be used to open up entire walls, with two to seven panel combinations creating entranceways up to 7m across.

It is available in hundreds of colours, including White Sand and Space Grey, and a choice of matt, gloss or special Coatex finish. A realistic wood effect finish is available for consumers who prefer traditional aesthetics.

Dekko’s windows to wow show-goers at FIT

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

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 PVCu corner-welding process will also be on display. Faithfully replicating traditional timber with all the benefits of state-of-the-art PVCu, 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 PVCu 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 takes Truro Windows to Infinity and beyond

Raum Infinity windows
Installers country-wide are rushing to offer Räum Infinity, the game-changing PVCu windows and doors from innovative trade fabricator Dekko Window Systems – and Cornwall-based Truro Windows, respected installers of nearly 30 years, have become one of the latest.

Unlike normal PVCu window and door frames which feature an unsightly 3.5mm wide diagonal groove at the join, a result of the welding and corner cleaning process, Räum Infinity frames come in two superior finishes.

The first is a smooth, seamless finish, which can be achieved on all laminated profiles. This option means you have no external weld sprue, reverse butt welds, unsightly grooves or knifed off jagged edges, all of which normally collect dust and dirt. The second finish is a 1.5mm thin pencil line on all non-laminated profiles.

Dekko achieves these stunning finishes thanks to their new graf welder, one of only a handful that’s operational in the UK, which has a patented ceramic heater plate that ‘zip welds’ the corner joints and allows for the precise placement of the welded sprue.

“It’s really tough to stand out in the PVCu market,” said Ian Baxter, Truro Windows managing director. “There are so many installation companies offering similar products, meaning you can sometimes end up in a price war. But with Infinity, Dekko were offering exactly what we needed. With smooth, groove-free corners, Räum Infinity looks very different to your run of the mill PVCu window, helping us appeal to affluent homeowners and giving us an edge over the competition.”

Kurt Greatrex, Dekko sales director commented: “We’re always delighted when an installer opts to start offering our products – especially when they’re as committed to quality and customer service as Truro are. We’re looking forward to a long, fruitful collaboration over the coming years.”

Founded in 2008 by Gary Torr and Kurt Greatrex, Dekko Window Systems are firmly established as one of the UK’s leading Residence 9, Deceuninck and Kommerling fabricators.

The company operates from a company’s 55,000 square foot facility in Ashton-under-Lyne and was recently named one of the London Stock Exchanges 1,000 Businesses to Inspire Britain. The factory is kitted out with over a £1m worth of equipment, including the cutting-edge graf welder that makes the Räum Infinity range possible.

Räum sales off to a flying start

black bifold doors from raum Dekko Window Systems has seen a massive upsurge in enquiries and sales following the recent launch of its much-anticipated Räum collection of high-end doors. Räum was launched at the back end of 2015 following a teaser campaign in the press and has become a firm favourite with several Dekko trade customers.

Dekko Sales Director, Kurt Greatrex, commented: “The industry reaction to our press teaser campaign was phenomenal – much more than we were expecting…we knew we had a great product range, and that between Purplex and ourselves we’d managed to come up with a really innovative marketing campaign – but we had no idea just how positive the reaction would be. Leads and sales went through the roof, and to be nominated for a Construction Marketing Award was the icing on the cake.”

One fantastic collection, three core products

Räum is made up of three core products – Gleiten (the range of bi-folding doors), Terassi (the range of patio doors) and Schommel (the slide and swing door) – all of which combine sleek, stylish aesthetics with exceptional practicality and performance.

As Kurt discusses, “One of the key benefits of Räum products is how they maximise natural light and create a feeling of airiness and space in the home…take the Räum Gleiten 77, for example. It has ultra slim sightlines and can be manufactured up to three metres high and seven metres wide – perfect for those ‘Grand Design’ projects.”

Kurt continued, “The biggest and best opportunities in today’s market are at the high-end, and Räum was specifically designed to help installers pitch to that lucrative demographic. The response so far has been phenomenal – so much so that we already planning to make some more exciting additions to the Räum range in the not too distant future.”

The North West’s most respected home improvement fabricators

Established in 1998, Dekko Window Systems is one of the North West region’s most respected fabricators of aluminium and high-end PVCu doors and windows.
