MONTREAL, Canada – December 9, 2014 – Unicel Architectural today announced that it has won two 2014 Architectural Products Magazine Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) for unique design solutions supporting sustainable building. Unicel’s distinctive skylight systems garnered a win in the “Windows/Doors/Openings” category, and its solar shading products gained recognition in the “Solar Control & Shading” category.

“The PIAs set the standard for excellence in the construction industry,” said Jean-Francois Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “Our skylight and solar shading systems have been perfected over decades of experience in some of the most arduous climate conditions. Whether optimizing daylight into interior spaces or controlling solar heat gain, they are proven to perform for the long-term. These awards confirm what our customers have been telling us for years – our products are indisputably first-rate.”

The PIAs determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products that range the gamut from cladding systems to interior finishes. Judged by a group of 50 independent industry professionals, the program impartially reviews hundreds of products and presents to readers items their peers found innovative and worth investigating.

“Building on the success of last year’s program, our fourth edition of the awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,”
said Jim Crockett, Editorial Director, Architectural Products Magazine.
