Milgard Windows & Doors has been recognized for its commitment to innovation with an International Design Excellence Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America for the SmartTouch® patio door handle.

The patent-pending SmartTouch handle was designed to engage with simple, one-touch operation when opening and closing. The lock mechanism is hidden, allowing you to focus on the sleek, ergonomic handle design. A simple one-touch motion unlocks, opens, and closes the door, making it accessible and usable for all ages. The lock and handle combination exceeds all California forced-entry requirements, which are among the most rigorous codes in the nation.
