Deceuninck wins G18 Product of the Year with Linktrusion technology

Jane Alexander Photography Glass Awards 2018

Deceuninck has won the G18 ‘Product of the Year’ award with Linktrusion technology. This is the second year running Deceuninck has scooped the top prize for product innovation at the G-Awards.

Described by judges as “a truly innovative product”, Linktrusion is a completely new, patented composite technology that combines pultruded glass fibre with PVC-U in Deceuninck’s 5000 composite system. Windows and doors made with Linktrusion are said to be light and strong with slim sightlines and outstanding thermal performance. Fully recyclable, Linktrusion windows and doors are the first to remove the need for traditional steel reinforcement so developers can specify very tall windows and large doors.

“To say we’re over the moon is an understatement!” said Deceuninck MD Rob McGlennon. “Linktrusion is a real innovation and it is already making a big impact in the commercial sector. Our 5000 window and doors with Linktrusion combine outstanding performance with a flush, contemporary appearance that specifiers love.

“We’ve had a fantastic year with sales up 17%, but winning Product of the Year is the icing on the cake. It follows our win in 2017 with the standout Heritage Flush Sash, and it’s great to get the recognition from peers and industry experts. I’d like to thank the Deceuninck team for all their hard work, and our customers for their ongoing support.”  

Deceuninck was presented with its trophy at the G18 gala dinner and awards ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane at the end of November. The annual G-Awards celebrates the achievements of companies and individuals in the glass and glazing industry.
