Curo, Emplas and Kubu for a smarter new build standard
Curo Group has become the first housebuilder in the UK to provide PVC doors equipped for Kubu smart-sensor technology as standard on all new sites, in partnership with its manufacturing partner, Emplas.
Curo Group is a West of England Housing Association that owns a range of property, from starter homes to Grade I Listed Buildings, in locations from rural villages to city centres.
In recent years they, along with other housebuilders have moved into new technologies with future-proofing for smart-tech high on the agenda, and thereby promoting smart living without any associated risk or additional works
Kubu is a pioneer in the smart-sensor market for doors, and with over 18 months in the field of testing and development behind them, they are now fully assured of a product that works exceptionally. Curo will be promoting the Kubu Starter Kit's at the point of house reservation, so the new homeowners can activate the smart-sensors on the day they move in.
As a forward-thinking window and door manufacturer, Emplas have led the way in increasing the product adoption of Kubu and with the window sensor just a matter of months away it could be great news to all those associated with the brand. Ryan Johnson, managing director of Emplas commented: 'Housebuilders are looking for differentiation like everyone else. Smart technologies deliver that and Kubu is the perfect fit. Being able to offer house buyers access to a tech and app that allows them to monitor the permitter security for their home is a major selling point in new build - or for that matter retail.'
Mark Bromley, CEO of Kubu added: 'This is major news for the industry as the first housebuilder is now specifying doors that are Kubu equipped from Emplas. With the window variant just a matter of months away, we believe 2021 is the year that smart-sensor technology comes of age for this industry.'
