Kömmerling and KBE have just opened an impressive new showroom at their Lichfield facility that includes a number of different window and door systems including the new O70 Gold, 88 Plus system, PremiLine patio door and KBE 58mm MK5 systems.

Energy efficiency and the use of lead-free materials remain the focus for the company and this is reflected in the new showroom. At a time when many other systems companies are having to plan the difficult change to lead free compounds, Kömmerling and its parent company Profine Group has already successfully done this 6 years ago, through the development of the Greenline compound.

The new showroom shows off the 5 chambered C70 and O70 Gold systems which are designed to meet the Building Regulations with more cost effective glass options, along with the 88 Plus system which carries PassivHaus certification and doesn’t need Krypton filled glass to meet the 0.8 ‘U’ value. There’s also the PremiLine patio door on display with a full length aluminium reinforced centre section which acts as a continuous handle.

Kevin Warner of Kömmerling/KBE comments:

Benchmark Windows are the latest customer to become part of the Solidor network and are already seeing an increase in enquiries for the unique solid core composite door, that’s packed with several unique features.

Based in Lancing near Brighton, Benchmark Windows are an established trade player in the Sussex and Surrey area and have built a loyal customer base for their Kömmerling windows and doors which carry impressive green credentials. These credentials are echoed by Solidor’s own green promise and the use of lead-free materials, the fact that the slab is fully recyclable and a comprehensive recycling policy are three of the key elements of this.

More recently, Benchmark Windows are just in the process of opening their retail showroom that includes 12 Solidor composite doors showing off the Italia Collection, traditional designs, stable doors, back doors and a wide variety of internal and external colours. The vast array of glass, colours and styles will be a feature of the new retail showroom and the expectations are for sales of the Solidor doors to grow rapidly.

Jason Doe and Pippa Cross were quick to explain the success they’ve had with Solidor and commented: “It’s a unique and high quality door slab that’s packed with features. The company not only offers impressive product quality, but also offers wonderful customer service, fantastic


Developed especially for people with limited movement the latest addition to the MACO Multi Trend family allows wheelchair users a comfortable solution to the physical barriers normally associated when operating a tilt turn window.

A standard tilt and turn has the handle situated centrally on the side of the window, but this makes it almost impossible for a wheelchair user to operate.

The new ‘Comfort Stay’ from MACO

overcomes this barrier with its handle situated centrally on the bottom of the window, utilizing a self closing scissor stay and a tilt slide handle from the MACO Emotion range with a longer lever ensures reduced handle forces. A 90 degree turn of
