Aluminium offers a range of
contemporary casements, reversible,
tilt and turn, and heritage options;
plus, the Decalu101 Scand, which offers ‘U’
values as low as 0.89W/m2k.
The focus of its systems launch, however,
has been very firmly focussed on doors. The
Decalu88 aluminium bi-folding door; the
Decalu163 lift-and-slide patio; and the Decalu88
aluminium entrance door.
The highly modular system has been launched
with a promise to deliver manufacturing
efficiencies of up to 40% over comparable
systems; trim as much as two hours off door
installation times; plus eliminate call backs for
gasket shrinkage; and in the case of its entrance
door offer thermal stress, something which
Deceuninck claims ‘re-writes the rule book’ on
entrance door specification.
Each is also supplied in dual colour, marine
grade and textured finishes – as standard –
emulating the focus Deceuninck has applied to
PVC-U foils in aluminium.
“We have a complete system; casements,
tilt-and-turns, heritage – they’re there. Our
immediate focus for our launch campaign has
been doors because it’s where we can add
the greatest immediate value to Deceuninck
customers and the market as a whole,” says
Nigel Headford, business development director,
“We have a very strong aluminium bi-fold in
the Decalu88. It’s great to manufacture, great
to install; the same goes for the Decalu163
lift-and-slide patio. The growth that we have
seen in these markets since lockdown has been
