The National Association of Home Builders named Anthony Innovations a finalist in its 2018 Global Innovation Awards. The announcement puts Anthony Innovations’ TraXtar among the top innovative products of the year.
“Our aim with TraXtar is to give system designers and distributors the opportunity to confidently extend their product offering,” says Ben Anthony, managing director at Anthony Innovations. “Excessive resistive force in the operation of large door panels has been a common complaint from the building industry and its end users. Although other rollers with similar load-carrying capacity exist in the market, the attention to rolling resistance has been secondary until recently. Working within the confines of existing systems, we optimized our design to provide a balanced dual layer bogie mechanism and larger wheels to achieve an exponential improvement in rolling performance.”
Now in its fourth year, the NAHB Global Innovation Awards aim to recognize the most cutting-edge, advanced and original product offerings. A panel of judges will select the winner(s) among the finalists based on the following criteria: innovation, functionality, good design, builder/consumer friendly, sustainability and unique marketing approach.
NAHB will announce the winners in Las Vegas during the NAHB International Builders’ Show Global Industry Day on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019 in the International Central.
