Seamless sills

One of the first fabricators to use Graf weld technologyon its Infinity range of seamless PVC-U windows and later with the Residence Collection, Dekko Window Systems has now made a £150k investment in the new, Graf sill welder.

The new sill welder means the firm can add a high-end, premium finish to its window cills as standard, manufacturing 95mm stub cills and both 150mm and 180mm cills with a completely seamless weld. Eliminating potential dis-colouration by removing the need to sand or polish the cill, the advanced machine achieves a more accurate, cleaner finish as it digitally sets the angles to weld.

“Both Infinity and Residence have quickly established themselves as two of the industry’s top systems, and part of that success comes from appealing to high-end focused consumers through their seamless corner welds,” says Kurt Greatrex, sales director at Dekko Window Systems. “The addition of the new Graf sill welder means we can take this one step further, creating high-quality, seamless window systems that are even more desirable, deliver even greater margins for our customers and furthers the gap between them and their competition.”

Designed to provide a premium alternative to standard white PVC-U windows, Infinity’s distinct aesthetics are achieved in three designs, chamfered, sculptured and flush sash. Available in 26 colours including a variety of authentic woodgrain foils, Infinity has been designed to appeal to multiple markets, whether it’s as a timber replacement, or a high-end solution for new-build projects.

“As the industry shifts, and consumers continue to turn their attention towards the premium end of the market, we have focused our efforts on creating a range that helps our customers across the UK capitalise on this demand,” says Greatrex “Over our 10-years in business we have invested millions of pounds to create three game-changing brands in Infinity, Räum aluminium and the Residence Collection – becoming the UK’s largest fabricator of the timber-effect range. Cutting edge machinery is just one of the many ways we ensure we can always meet the needs of installers in a rapidly-changing, highly-competitive market.”
