As we step into 2024, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the remarkable year we’ve had at Selo and look ahead to the exciting developments on the horizon. 2023 marked our 16th year in business, and as we reflect upon our journey, we are reminded that our commitment to innovation, customer care, and the well-being of our team remains as strong as it was in year one.

Growth among challenges

Despite the challenges the market and industry have faced, we are proud to announce that Selo achieved a remarkable 30% growth in 2023. Our team has worked tirelessly to improve our products and develop new solutions to address pressing issues within the industry.

A year of success and innovation

One of the key highlights of 2023 was our “Building Better Seminar.” This face-to-face event proved to be a resounding success, offering insights into the upcoming changes required by the industry with the Building Safety Act coming into force. Our commitment to staying ahead of regulatory changes is unwavering.

Our award-winning product, “Tempus – The Temporary Fire Doorset,” has gone from strength to strength. It’s now being used on some of the largest construction projects in the UK, a testament to its quality and reliability. We’ve continued to enhance its design, with a new and improved version set to launch shortly.

Nulfire, our latest innovation, proudly made its debut in 2023. This unique system is the only properly fire-rated solution on the market that allows you to install a riser doorset into a wall lined with masonry, such as Gyplyner.

Additionally, we will be introducing Rida, a cost-effective FD30 metal riser door that meets the diverse needs of our customers, offering both FD30 fire rating and affordability.

What to look out for in 2024

In the coming year, we have an exciting lineup of new developments to offer our customers:

– Third-Party Certification for Quadra+: We’re actively pursuing third-party certification for Quadra, ensuring that our products meet the highest standards of quality and safety.

Fuma CE: The redesigned Fuma has undergone rigorous testing to satisfy CE marking requirements, with a planned launch in Q2. This demonstrates our commitment to adhering to the latest industry standards.

– Innova+: We’re thrilled to unveil the new and improved Innova product in Q1. This updated design includes features like an adjustable frame, adjustable pivot, and options for both inward and outward opening.

– Fire-Rated Temporary Lift Shaft Doorset: We’re addressing a pressing issue in the industry by developing a fire-rated temporary lift shaft doorset. Safety is our top priority, and this solution will ensure that temporary lift shaft doors meet the necessary fire safety requirements.

Enigma Online Shop: At Selo, we understand the importance of convenience. To make the purchase and supply of our highly popular pocket door system even more accessible, we are launching an online shop. This platform will streamline the ordering process, making it more convenient for our customers.

– New and Improved Enigma Soft Closer: As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we have been hard at work enhancing the Enigma soft closer. The result is a smoother and more user-friendly experience, adding value to our product range.

Tempus Website: Tempus, our acclaimed Temporary Fire Doorset, is getting its very own dedicated website. This platform will provide valuable resources, information, and support to our customers, ensuring that you have all the information you need at your fingertips.

Supporting architects and simplifying the journey

At Selo, we’re not just about delivering products; we’re dedicated to making your journey simpler and easier at every step. That’s why we’re strengthening our team with new faces to better assist our architect clients in writing specifications for their projects. Our goal is to help you create precise and watertight specifications before they go out to tender. We’re here to support you every step of the way.

As we wrap up 2023, we extend our warmest thanks to all our customers and friends in the industry. It has been a fantastic year that we have very much enjoyed. Your trust and support have been instrumental in our success.

As the holiday season approaches, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas break, filled with joy and relaxation. We look forward to working with you all in 2024 and continuing our journey together. At Selo, our commitment to excellence and innovation remains steadfast, and we can’t wait to explore new horizons with you in the coming year. Thank you for being a part of our story, and here’s to a bright and prosperous future.
