In the UK, domestic UPVC window & door market is £2 billion per year - that is for all newly produced windows & doors. The UK Government aims to build 250,000 homes per year (never succeeds). Since the solution is intended to be retrofittable and battery powered with minimal maintenance, it can be installed on most existing UPVC casement window frames that are in almost every property in the UK. Looking for pre-seed funding to allow completion of the prototype and getting a product to market for equity based investment.
