1. NEVER STOP INNOVATING
The window and door market in South Florida has always been an extremely competitive and fierce market. The competition is global, national, regional, and local. Manufacturers of every size and type want to have a piece of the South Florida hurricane window and door market, from residential builder grade products to luxury products for multi-million-dollar homes. From the stick-built commercial impact-resistant storefront systems to the massive four-sided, structurally glazed impact-resistant curtain wall products, South Florida is where innovation begins with impact-resistant products of every kind.
For Enviralum to survive and thrive in this competitive environment, they had to develop and offer a portfolio of innovative quality products that provided value-oriented solutions for their customers. Offering knock-off products that barely met the performance requirements would not have been the formula for success for Enviralum. From the beginning, innovation was the key, from designing and engineering new entrance door and window systems to making unique modifications based on specific project needs.
Enviralum’s newest product is the ENV-4545 Casement, Project Out Window. Customers kept asking for an operable window with the same performance and quality as the ENV-350 Door system and could be used together. Frank took a closer look at his ENV-350 Door, and the light bulb went off. He envisioned a vent in the door, the mid-rail popped out at Frank, and he immediately designed a receptor extrusion that allows the vent to close into his fixed window wall system. Frank is currently putting together the testing program for the product and anticipates having the product approval by Q3, 2021.
