Milgard's SmartTouch® hardware was inspired by those who use it. You.
Responding to consumer needs for products that are easy to operate and maintain, Milgard developed the innovative SmartTouch window lock and door handle. The easiest, smartest way to lock and unlock a window or door. That's why the Milgard SmartTouch window lock and door handle won prestigious IDEA awards (International Design Excellence) from the Industrial Designers Society of America. Milgard was also awarded the Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation in recognition of the SmartTouch lock and handle's innovation and universal design. The SmartTouch hardware is available exclusively on our Tuscany® and Montecito® premium vinyl windows and doors.
The SmartTouch hardware is in the vanguard of an important new trend in home design know as "aging in place." With so many baby boomers approaching their senior years, this technology and others are enabling people to live independently in their own homes longer and more comfortably. Milgard is committed to developing innovative products and solutions for this fast-growing market.
