METALCON Announces Top Three People’s Choice Award Winners

Exhibitors at this year’s METALCON were invited to nominate their top metal products in one of 15 product categories for the METALCON Top Products Award, and attendees were invited to vote on-site in Indianapolis for their top three choice products in the People’s Choice Awards. 

The 2022 METALCON People’s Choice Award winners are:

First Place

Category: Walls

ATAS International, Inc. – Omawall PL with EVO

Omawall PL with EVO is an architectural plate panel, manufactured in .10 thick aluminum and is made fully of non-combustible materials. EVO is a patented panel extrusion attachment developed by Carter Architectural. Panels are prefabricated and field-cut, saving on installation time and costs by avoiding field-fabrication.

Second Place

MetalCoffeeShop is an online community consisting of a progressive and informative website, podcasts, webinars, articles, classifieds and so much more that engages the metal industry. Focusing on all metal, including roofing, walls, HVAC, gutters and more, this site delivers information that builds businesses while enabling ongoing conversation. 

Third Place

Category: Structures

Roof Hugger, LLC – Roof Hugger Retrofit Sub-Purlins

These sub-purlins represent the first structurally correct metal roof retrofit framing members specifically designed to conform with existing industry standards. They are made of the same thickness and tensile strength structural steel as the existing building, plus they have been tested as a system on typical metal building framing, providing proven performance for design and code compliance.

To be eligible, products must have been introduced to the market after January 1, 2021, and its manufacturer a 2022 METALCON exhibiting company. Winners were determined by an electronic vote on-site.  

“After a wonderful show in Indianapolis with so many cutting-edge technologies and solutions on the show floor, we are excited to announce our top three METALCON People’s Choice Award winners,” said Judy Geller, METALCON Vice President of Tradeshows. “We look forward to seeing what’s in store for next year’s showcase of top products and technologies in Las Vegas.”
