Installers Flock to JDUK For Monumental Launch Open Days

After an exciting build up that became the talk of the industry, fuelled by a series of YouTube teaser videos, interest in JDUK’s big news reached boiling point on Tuesday 19th July, and not just because of the record-breaking heatwave! 

In spite of it, over 50 installers turned out to the first in a series of six open days, which were attended by over 200 people overall. The eagerly awaited open days were held at JDUK’s updated showroom in West Yorkshire to an overwhelming response, with installers keen to find out how JDUK’s new sectional garage door would match up to those previously supplied. And they were not disappointed.

JDUK MD, Steve Hudson, assured customers the new products would be as good, if not better, than anything currently on offer in the UK market. And that was certainly proven to be the case with Unipro sectional garage door from Wisniowski, which offers side springs on doors even wider than before up to 5000mm, requires less headroom of just 80mm including the tolerance required for automation, and has a better U-value of just 0.48 W/m2K.

After an introduction by Steve, where he revealed new supplier Wisniowski, the curtain was finally lifted, quite literally thanks to Adrian from AR Barber, on the new sectional garage door and other new products. Attendees were able to see them first hand and were quick to appreciate their beauty and benefits. 

Jeff Darlington from DGD Garage Doors commented, 
“We were impressed with it. In our opinion it is a far superior door than most others on the market and means we can still carry on with JDUK as we have for the past 7 years.”
Special features of the Unipro sectional that delighted installers included a unique header/fascia, which has been designed specifically for the UK, to provide rigidity and strength for in-between and under installation. They were also impressed by the colour matched profiles and matching foiled profiles provided as standard. The exclusive Home Inclusive colour range of other matching products, such as aluminium entrance doors, also captured imagination.

The new range of aluminium doors from JDUK, produced by Wisniowski, were another highlight of the open day events and impressed installers with their stunning appearance. On display was a luxury Creo entrance door in a special modern black matt finish, with 3-point Autotronic locking and a Deco Light entrance door in a Modern graphite finish from the Home Inclusive range, also with 3-point Autotronic locking.

Steve also announced Gimenez Ganga as the new supplier for roller door components to JDUK, highlighting thicker material included in the hood and lath for additional rigidity, as well as a new type of end plate and guide roller assembly, leading to smoother operation.

Of particular interest though were the new range of insulated side-hinged garage doors from Wisniowski that JDUK have introduced to the UK market. There were 3 such doors displayed in the showroom, two DoorPro 45, one in anthracite grey and one in the increasingly popular Agate grey, and a DoorPro 60 in anthracite grey, where the number refers to the size of the profile.

Steve concluded by saying, 
“We’d like to thank all who attended our very successful open days for their support and enthusiasm. We had some fantastic feedback and ordering levels are already better than expected, which shows the confidence our customers have in our new products and suppliers.”
