The 2023 FIT Show showcased an array of groundbreaking technologies and products within the fenestration industry, and Dekko was proud to showcase our innovative and world first fully seamless window at the event.
Following on from the success of our Infinity range of uPVC windows, Dekko’s fully seamless window boasts reverse butt welding thanks to unique Graf weld technology, becoming the country’s first fully seamless sash.
The window also features Kubu Smart Security Sensors, which once set up, provide security and lifestyle smart alerts through the dedicated Kubu app, achieving maximum security and ultimate peace of mind.
A non-smart version of the new fully seamless sash window was also on display at Haffner’s stand, featuring unique reverse butt welding achievable only with Graf technology, available exclusively from the leading machinery company.
While showcasing our innovative product developments, Dekko has also outlined the noteworthy innovations that were unveiled at the Show.
One prominent theme at the 2023 FIT Show was the integration of smart home technologies into windows and doors.

The ability to monitor and control windows and doors through mobile devices or voice commands impressed attendees, reflecting the industry’s focus on seamless connectivity and convenience.
Energy efficiency remained a key focus at the FIT Show, with exhibitors introducing new solutions to enhance thermal performance and reduce carbon footprints. Triple glazing with low-emissivity coatings, argon-filled cavities, and thermally efficient frame materials garnered attention. Manufacturers showcased their commitment to meeting and exceeding energy efficiency regulations while prioritising the comfort and cost savings for end users.
The FIT Show highlighted the industry’s increasing emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly practices. Exhibitors showcased products made from recycled and recyclable materials, including uPVC, composite, and timber. Additionally, eco-conscious manufacturing processes and waste reduction strategies were highlighted, indicating the industry’s dedication to minimising its environmental impact.
Noise reduction solutions gained significant traction at the FIT Show, catering to the growing demand for quieter living spaces. Exhibitors showcased windows and doors with enhanced acoustic insulation properties, utilising advanced glazing systems, multiple seals, and innovative frame designs. These products aimed to create peaceful indoor environments by minimising external noise intrusion.
Ensuring the safety and security of homes and commercial buildings remained a top priority at the FIT Show. Exhibitors presented products with robust locking mechanisms, reinforced frames, laminated glass options, and advanced security features. Demonstrations of cutting-edge burglar-resistant technologies, such as reinforced profiles and multi-point locking systems, showcased the industry’s commitment to providing customers with peace of mind.
The FIT Show highlighted the importance of customisation and design flexibility in meeting diverse customer preferences. Manufacturers showcased a wide range of finishes, colours, textures, and hardware options, allowing customers to create personalised windows and doors that complement their architectural style. Exhibitors also presented digital visualisation tools that enabled real-time customisation and visual representation of products, helping customers make informed decisions.
