Overhead Door Corp., a manufacturer of residential and commercial overhead doors, was recognized as an industry innovator among commercial building product manufacturers by a panel of 50 building professionals and architects in “Architectural Products” magazine. The company’s Stormtite AP Model 627 insulated rolling-service door was awarded first place in the windows/doors/openings category of the publication’s annual Product Innovation Awards.
The Stormtite door meets International Energy Conservation Code thermal performance requirements, and is designed to minimize air transfer and reduce operating costs, the company said. It’s available in galvanized steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, and also comes in a variety of gauges, slat profiles, finishes, and options.
The Product Innovation Awards honor innovation in the development and refinement of building-related products and provide a method for industry peers to impartially review products and present readers with items believed to be innovative and worth investigating.
“Building on the success of last year’s program, this third edition of the Product Innovation Awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to and are working tirelessly toward delivering more sustainable products as well as products that deliver better performance, life, and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, the magazine’s editorial director.
