Each year, the National Association of Home Builders hosts one of the largest trade shows in the country, the International Builders’ Show (IBS). In order to identify the year’s top industry products, IBS invites exhibitors to submit for the Best of IBS Awards, with top contenders receiving a personal visit from the judges to their booths for a first-hand look at the industry’s top offerings. This year, StruXure Outdoor is pleased to announce that The Pivot, our motorized adjustable-louvered pergola, is a finalist in the competition.
From over 350 entries, only a fraction have been identified as finalist-worthy products. The Pivot was entered in the “Best Outdoor Product” category, and is unique in its ability to perfectly angle its louvers to allow for optimal air flow as well as to enjoy both shade and the beauty of a clear blue sky. The Pivot is operated by a powerful Somfy motor, and the company’s myLink™ app. The App uses voice control and can be programmed for three languages—English, French, and Spanish—not to mention its shareability with multiple users and the ability to create schedules to automatically activate motorized features based on time of day, day of the week, or by sunrise and sunset.
Category winners and the overall “Best in Show” award will be announced and presented at the Best of IBS Awards Happy Hour on the last day of the show, January 23, at 3:00pm. We will certainly be in great company in the finalist race, and look forward to participating in IBS 2020 and learning about all the great new products that will available in the coming year.
