Eastern Iowa Airport canopy system wins innovation award

November 25, 2015


Duo-Gard Industries Inc. has been honored with two Product Innovation Awards from Architectural Products Magazine. Awards for the company’s Sleekline Monolithic Translucent Canopy and its Polycarbonate Curtain Wall System were presented at Greenbuild 2015.

“Since 1984, Duo-Gard has been committed to creating solutions that help architects and designers meet the evolving demands of their markets,” said David Miller, president. “We’re so proud to have that commitment recognized by the judges.”

Duo-Gard’s Sleekline canopy system integrates architectural advantages and aesthetics with exceptional affordability. The low-profile, high-performance system features monolithic polycarbonate glazing panels in lengths up to 30’. Free-flow panel ends eliminate concerns about water pooling. Panels are available in a wide range of thicknesses, colors, textures and light transmittance. Aluminum structural systems are custom-engineered for loading and climatic requirements. This new canopy system is a prominent element of the extensive renovation at Eastern Iowa Airport outside Cedar Rapids, designed by Mead & Hunt.
