Unique Innovation

Window & Door’s annual Crystal Achievement Awards recognize residential window and door manufacturers and component suppliers for their contributions to the industry. Every year, we receive nearly 100 entries of products and processes that remind us of the true innovative spirit of the industry.

We compile a panel of judges from different corners of the industry; it is an impressive list of the who’s who in fenestration. 

Of all the entries, our judges narrowed down the list to seven that earned the title of Most Innovative. Each product was evaluated on its own merit according to criteria specific to each category. Equipment and components, for example, must fill a unique need in the industry or provide a solution to a common problem as well as incorporate innovative technology. Finished products were judged based not only on design and aesthetics, but also on their creative approach to satisfying a need, among other principles. All the evaluations pointed to this year’s Crystal Achievement Award Honorees.

Crystal Achievement Awards Judges

Window & Door extends gratitude to those who put time into our Crystal Achievement Awards program this year—including all those who submitted entries as well as our judges, who volunteered hours of their time.

(*Note: judges may not vote in the categories for which their own company is nominated.)
