Overture Folding DoorSeries Earns Royal Crystal Award for Second Consecutive Year

WOODBRIDGE, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Royal Building Products announced today that its new Overture Folding Door™ Series has been named a 2012 Crystal Achievement Award winner by Window & Door magazine. Overture was recognized in the Most Innovative Door - Large Manufacturer category.

Overture Folding Doors are available for residential and commercial applications and can accommodate a maximum width of 288 inches and a maximum height of 120 inches. When fully retracted, Overture Folding Doors provide easy access to exterior living and a great feeling of wide open space.

"We are honored to receive the Crystal award again in 2012 because it recognizes the exciting and innovative products being introduced by Royal Building Products," said Mark Orcutt, executive vice president of building products for Royal's parent company, Georgia Gulf Corporation. "We continue to focus on introducing premium products that will create lasting value for home exteriors and that will position Royal as the go-to source for innovative building products as the North American construction market rebounds."

In 2012 alone, Royal has launched nearly 20 cutting-edge vinyl-based building products.

"Our products are succeeding because they are designed with today's homeowner in mind - excellent aesthetics, low-maintenance and a level of quality that will last for decades," Orcutt said.

"We had a very competitive field of nominees this year, so the recognition is well deserved. Our judges were clearly impressed with your company's submission," John Swanson, Window & Door editor/associate publisher, said in a letter congratulating Royal Building Products on this achievement.

"As usual, window and door manufacturers and industry suppliers are finding new ways to significantly enhance the energy efficiency of our industry's products," Swanson said. "This year, we also recognized product advancements that provide new functionality and more design options as well" - and the Overture Folding Door Series was among them.

This is the second consecutive year that Royal has earned a Crystal award from Window & Door. In 2011, the company's Double Snap Vinyl Trim Systems were recognized as the Most Innovative Component in the Window category.
