NEW HAVEN, Conn., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The ASSA ABLOY Integris Door was named a 2016 GOOD DESIGN award winner from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, in the Building Materials category. Integris is a moisture-resistant flush door designed for interior or exterior applications in wet or humid areas, including: indoor swimming pools, spas, showers, and restrooms; medical rehab facilities; and hotels or multi-family residences with individual exterior entrances.
"We're proud to have Integris recognized for the unique opening solution it provides," said Jan McKenzie, director of national accounts, ASSA ABLOY. "This award underscores the value of moisture-resistant doors for buildings in the hospitality and healthcare markets. With Integris, building owners get a dependable door that withstands the conditions of damp areas while extending the natural beauty of wood throughout a facility."
Integris doors provide a wood option for some of the industry's most difficult applications previously limited to hollow metal, fiberglass or aluminum. They are manufactured in the U.S.A utilizing water-resistant stile, rail, and core materials, finished with high pressure decorative laminate skins and matching edge bands in many color options.
Several thousand entries were submitted from leading manufacturers and design firms from around the world. Over 900 product designs and graphics from more than 40 countries were selected to receive a GOOD DESIGN award, grouped into approximately 30 categories. Integris was the only door to be selected as part of the Building Materials category.
GOOD DESIGN award recipients were selected based on design and innovation, sustainability, creativity, branding, ecologically responsible design, human factors, materials, technology, graphic arts, packaging, and/or universal design. The official GOOD DESIGN award ceremony was held January 27, 2017, in New York City.
