Nationwide Windows, in partnership with Kubu, returned from Housing, the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference and housing festival, which was held in Manchester, with a number of firm enquiries for the revolutionary smart-sensor technology in windows and doors.

Held over three days at Manchester Central, there were over 6,000 attendees, 350+ speakers, and 350 exhibitors including Nationwide Windows at the event. Housing 2021 was described by the organisers as a must-attend event for local authorities, housing associations, key partners and suppliers, government, housebuilders, and developers.

Nationwide Windows theme of “making windows & doors smart” showcased a number of products on their stand that work with Kubu smart-sensor technology. This included the new Kubu window lock range with shoot bolt and standard security espags, and importantly, was the first public preview of the new Kubu window smart-sensor.

Also on display was the Kubu multi-point door lock, featuring 25mm hooks and a 20mm compression deadbolt with the Kubu smart-sensor fully operational within Nationwide’s composite doors.

It was also an opportunity for Kubu to present the ‘Kubu Connected Home’ philosophy with Nationwide Windows and the partnership opportunities open to housebuilders, local authorities, housing associations and other specifiers in the sector, as Ryan Bromley, head of tech for Kubu points out. He said: “This was a hugely exciting opportunity for us, working closely with Nationwide Windows, as it was the first public premier of the new window smart-sensor. It was also important to be able to speak to influencers at the sharp end about our vision for a Kubu connected home in the future.”

Kevin, Caveney, commercial director of Nationwide Windows who was part of the conference team added: “We already have an idea of how a smart future will look like with Kubu, but the response from the show was overwhelming. The opportunities for us are considerable as we look to embrace the smart home market through commercial specifiers. They’re hugely interested in becoming part of this smart revolution too and we’re already engaging with a number of potential suitors.”
