Patios Southwest Backs Deceuninck

Patios Southwest has taken on Deceuninck as a single source for its PVC-U patio sliding door profile in a bid to manage quality and supply.

The fabricator, which is based in Newton Abbot, had dual sourced for a number of years. Recently the company found that increasing numbers of customers were moving over to the Slider 24+ system from Deceuninck to benefit from a number of features on offer.


 “Deceuninck accounted for 95% of all the work we were doing with the key drivers being the excellent colour offer and great lead times.”

General manager, Patios Southwest


Colour stock

“Deceuninck has more than 30 colours in stock, all ready to go,” continues Prior. “So even if we wanted something like Agate grey, we can order it and get our products out of the door in two weeks.”


Sculptured sash

The final development that encouraged Patios Southwest to move to Deceuninck for 100% of its patio sliding door profile was the introduction of a sculptured sash. “We had a handful of customers who relied on a sculptured sash for some of their sales, so when Deceuninck introduced a sculptured sash earlier this year, the reasons for having two systems running side by side disappeared,” adds Prior. “We’ve now informed our customers of our decision to move over to Deceuninck 100% - and we’ve only had positive feedback.”



Deceuninck’s Slider24+ is manufactured at the company’s facility in Calne, Wiltshire. It is PAS24 secured and, according to Deceuninck, has exceptionally good weather performance. It is also energy rated at A+, is available with a low threshold and comes with a 10-year guarantee.

The new sculptured sash means that the Slider24+ now suites with Deceuninck’s heritage window collection and the 2800 system, which will allow installation companies to upsell across product ranges, as well as maximise opportunities provided by the colour offering.
