Said Mr. Miyoshi from KDK Japan, "The design, features and colours have been arrived at after listening to the needs of our clients in the Region. It also boasts of innovative safety and technically superior features which our customers will surely appreciate. Consultants and Specifiers will especially be happy with the slim 5-speed Regulator that now fits into a standard BS backbox, giving the installation an attractively crisp look. A gold motif design on the motor's cover is the icing on the cake!"

KDK's challenge has been to keep up with the changes in the building materials industry and provide solutions that will improve the quality of air that surrounds every human being."
