A home improvement innovator for as long as 50 years, Kömmerling has remained Alex Trade’s uPVC system of choice since our establishment in 1991. Such dedication to one system allows us to supply even the most bespoke orders faster than rivals, all while still delivering a high quality result every time. This year in particular was a big one for Kömmerling, marking the company’s debut at the industry’s prestigious FIT show.

To better understand why Kömmerling is the perfect choice for uPVC windows and doors from Alex Trade, you need look no further than Kömmerling’s showing at the FIT show. Let’s explore!

The German uPVC systems company’s first big UK trade show

Seeking this year’s FIT show as the most fitting opportunity to launch their new 76mm system and get it in front of existing customers as well as eager new trade partners and commercial contractors, Kömmerling capitalised on their first UK trade show offering tenfold. It certainly caught our attention, boasting unrivalled U-values and other technologies we can see the Alex Trade installer network finding useful in the near future.

Many appreciated the FIT show’s relocation from Telford to the much more lavish NEC in Birmingham, expressing just how far the exhibition has come, thus making it the perfect time for Kömmerling. “There’s no better place than a trade show to present your brand offering” one particular attendee commented, “We’ll be looking forward to the FIT Show in 2019 with the promise of more innovation”.

Showing off newly-developed products and the latest engineering practices

Dubbed an “innovation zone” on the show floor, one of the most notable ways Kömmerling made their presence known at the FIT show was via a number of system 76 products, including the impressive 6m x 2.5m lift and slide PremiDoor 76. Lead-free as expected and smooth-functioning, it’s a modern yet barrier-free home improvement solution.

A four-pane PremiLine Pro with Secured by Design status was also on show, as well as the world’s first chance to get a look at Kömmerling’s PremiSlide, an ingenious flush fitting patio type door that boasts unrivalled weather performance with ‘soft close’ technology. Many were left impressed by it, with PremiSlide quickly becoming the talk of the show.

A packed stand that outshone the competition

From our perspective, product showcases and innovations such as this only served to reinforce our beliefs that Kömmerling is an innovator that doesn’t look set to slow down. At present, we exclusively focus on O70 Gold ovolo, but System 76 in time could overtake it in terms of system flexibility and affordability for our installer network. These innovative products combined with our next day frame delivery, that’s the Alex Trade difference.
