Decalu by Deceuninck Aluminium has made the short-list in the Best New Product Category at this year’s G-Awards.
It means that Decalu will go through to the finals night at a special gala dinner, which will be held at the Hilton in London’s Park Lane November 26th.
It represents a significant achievement for a system launched at the beginning of 2020 and only weeks before the UK entered the first of three national lockdowns.
“Was a few weeks before lockdown the best time to launch?”, says Nigel Headford, Director, Deceuninck Aluminium. “It certainly increased the stakes but in a sense people had time to look at and understand what we’re working to achieve, and the response has been incredible.
“Decalu has a rapidly growing fabrication and installer base and I think that’s because we are offering something different.
“We’re a new system in the UK but a proven one, and we have the brand.
“With some big manufacturing and installation efficiencies and a commitment to redefine levels of service in aluminium supply, people are listening, and I’m delighted that that’s been recognised with a finalist spot at this G21.”
The Deceuninck Aluminium offer includes its flagship Decalu88 bi-folding door, which achieves u-values as low as 0.68W/m2K; the Decalu163 lift and slide, which hits u-values as low as 0.8 W/m2K and the Decalu101 Scand, which offers U-values as low as 0.89W/m2k.
It also features and entrance door range, including a flush option, plus the Decalu 88 Steel and New Steel, designed to replicate steel commercial windows; plus, a hidden sash, retro and turn-and-tilt options.
