Dekko Window Systems Sales Director discusses sustainability, technology, and the importance of pioneering design…
In an ever-evolving fenestration industry, staying ahead of the curve is crucial.
As consumer demands shift towards sustainable solutions, innovative technology integration, and pioneering product design, it becomes increasingly important to revolutionise traditional practices.
At Dekko, we understand that by seamlessly integrating cutting-edge technology into our products and pushing the boundaries of design, we are setting new standards in the industry, giving installers a competitive advantage in meeting customer expectations, and shaping the future of fenestration.
The demand for sustainable home improvement products is on the rise in the UK, as consumers become increasingly concerned with reducing their carbon footprint and safeguarding the environment.
This shift in public attitudes towards environmental responsibility has been supported by government policies and financial incentives that encourage homeowners to embrace eco-friendly alternatives.
One of the key drivers behind this trend is the Future Homes Standard, which requires all new homes built in England from 2025 to have high levels of energy efficiency, a standard that will ensure that these homes produce significantly less carbon emissions than those built under current regulations.
In response to this growing demand for sustainable home improvements, installers need to be equipped with the right products, and at Dekko, we offer a range of products that contribute towards achieving a net zero carbon goal.
Dekko is also the UK’s largest fabricator of Residence Collection windows and doors, which are known for their thermal efficiency and offer impressive u-values and guarantee an A++ energy rating.
With government support, an evolving industry, and a motivated consumer base, there is promising growth potential for sustainable home improvement in the UK, and Dekko aims to meet this growing demand by providing customers with high-quality and environmentally friendly products.
The smart home revolution has transformed the way we interact with our living spaces, and provides a unique opportunity for installers to step up their game and offer a unique product that homeowners can’t refuse.
It’s why we supply Kubu, the smart security sensor from Avantis hardware, which can be incorporated into almost any Dekko entrance door.
The Kubu smart security sensors work by attaching a sensor to the door which is then linked to the homeowner’s smartphone. This allows them to check the status of their door at any time from any location. The Kubu app then lets users see the security status of their door whenever it is locked or unlocked.
I believe that installers who embrace innovations in security, integration, and user-friendliness are positioning themselves for success in a rapidly changing market, and by offering products like Kubu smart security sensors, they can meet the demands of modern homeowners who seek comfort, convenience, and security.
The fenestration industry is facing a challenge as consumers are cutting back on spending due to an ongoing cost of living crisis.
I believe that in order to persuade customers to invest, companies need to offer something innovative that they can’t get elsewhere.
At Dekko, we’ve focused on constant product development and keeping up with consumer trends and technological advances.
Last year, we entered into an exclusivity agreement with machinery expert Haffner to develop a unique product – a fully seamless window.
This world-first offering includes transoms, mullions, cruciforms, and reverse butt welding achieved only with Haffner’s new Graf Synergy machine.
Our new seamless window has been one of Dekko’s most successful innovations to date, and has certainly opened the door to a thriving and successful future.
Overall, it’s clear that offering innovative products such as fully seamless windows can entice customers to invest even during difficult economic times.
I also believe that there are many opportunities ahead, and by investing in manufacturing high-performing, aesthetically pleasing products that get end users excited, the bigger the opportunity.
Dekko’s unwavering dedication to sustainable practice, innovative technology integration and pioneering design not only positions us as leaders in the fenestration industry, but also equips our customers with the tools they need to meet ever-evolving consumer needs.
As demand changes, our commitment to forward-thinking solutions remains resolute, ensuring that both Dekko and our partners continue to set new benchmarks and drive the future of fenestration.

"Ordered double glazed window for our shop. Dealt with Nathan on the Trade Counter, who was excellent and went above and beyond the usual customer service. Window was very well made and arrived with no problems. Fast delivery and would highly recommend."
"Recently used Dekko Windows to supply the windows and aluminium bi-fold doors for our renovation project. We paid a short visit to their showroom where Rob and Neil were really helpful, showing us around and providing options for us. We were really happy with the whole process and the windows look fantastic. Would definitely recommend this company."
"I've been using Dekko Windows for a number of years now and have been very happy with the level of service and products.
