Decalu by Deceuninck Aluminium has made the short-list in the Best New Product Category at this year’s G-Awards.

The Deceuninck Aluminium offer includes the 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.

Director Nigel Headford said the nomination 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?”, he added. “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.”
