Nxt-Gen sales ‘soar’ in 2023
Distinction Doors has reported that 2023 was the best year yet for the Nxt-Gen door range, with prep sales up 5% on the previous year and doubling since 2020.
This success is attributed to rising consumer awareness and demand for flush products.
“With many homeowners now choosing flush windows they want the same look and feel from their entrance door,” commented Emma Fowlds, junior marketing manager from Distinction Doors. “With its exclusive flush-fitted beaded system and moulding our Nxt-Gen entrance doors meet that demand.”
There are seven doors in the Nxt-Gen range plus an exclusive decorative glass range and bespoke colour palette with dual-colour option.
“And for fabricators its easy and convenient too,” continued Emma. “With no cassette, Nxt-Gen requires significantly less glazing time and consumables, and if de-glazing is ever required, it’s much easier.” Nxt-Gen is also said to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by 75%.
While it’s said to be popular with trade and retail customers, Nxt-Gen is also a proven solution for those servicing the new build and social housing sectors.
“Social housing is likely to be a growth market in the coming year with private developers still feeling the effects of higher mortgage rates and the cost-of-living crisis,” said Emma. “Nxt-gen can help our fabricators meet the requirements of this more demanding customer base and secure new business.
“Weatherproofing, energy efficiency, security, sound insulation and thermal performance, Nxt-Gen meets, if not exceeds, every demand.
“The 44.5mm Nxt-Gen blank range also has proven specification requirements to meet the certification of PAS 24:2022, helping to support Secured by Design approved fabricators in manufacturing the ultimate enhanced security doorset. An asset in this competitive market.”
