Clearly four very good product ranges within the Raum suite. But I think the biggest surprise of all is the inclusion of some PVCu options. Most will have expected this to be an all-aluminium affair. However I think this is a smart move from Raum makers Dekko.
Firstly from a price perspective. PVCu should in theory be a slightly cheaper option than their aluminium counterparts. By having a PVCu option in the Terassi and Schommel ranges, it allows Dekko to sell the Raum brand, with all it’s bells and whistles, to those who may not be able to stretch to aluminium prices.
Secondly, and as hard as this might be for the die hard aluminium fans, some people just prefer PVCu. By including some PVCu varieties, Dekko are ensuring that lovers of both materials have options they can look at.
Sign of the times
The Raum range itself is yet another new brand aimed at the higher end of the market. No cheap and cheerful products here. And it is yet another sign of where the UK window and door market is heading. It’s heading there quickly.
From memory, I can’t remember a recent product launch that wasn’t aimed at the high end of the market. This is a reflection on the industry and where it thinks the future is. But is also an indication that home owners and the general public are looking for better quality options when it comes to windows and doors.
I haven’t seen the products in person, or had them in my hand yet. However, if the images and text are to be taken at face value, this should be another high quality addition to the aluminium sector and should prove a new and successful string to the Dekko Window Systems bow.
