Centor is celebrating worldwide recognition of its luxurious S4 Screen and Shade System after winning a Red Dot ‘Best of the Best’ Award in the internationally respected German design competition.
Launched in early 2019, Centor’s S4 Screen and Shade System enables homeowners with large door openings to enjoy the luxury of inside-outside living without any of the traditional compromises, thanks to its carefully considered design and unobtrusive presence.
Screens and shades control insects, sunlight and privacy and retract discreetly into the frame when not in use, removing visual distractions to the view outside. The addition of both top and bottom tabs on the fabrics ensure shades are held taut in the frame and insect mesh remains securely in place - even in a breeze.
Thanks to Centor’s unique load balancing technology, S4 is a joy to operate. At the touch of a fingertip, screens and shades glide smoothly across the whole door opening to effortlessly stop at any desired position.
Nigel Spork, Centor’s Managing Director, is delighted with the award: “In designing S4, we wanted to make the benefits of our state-of-the-art screens and shades available to more homeowners with a product that was functional, simple to install and able to integrate seamlessly with any door – new or existing. I am hugely proud of what the Centor Design Team has achieved.”
Centor’s Group Manager of Product & Engineering, David Chappell, added: “We strive to create a best-in-class product every time, and winning such a prestigious design award validates the hard work that we have all put in. Our biggest accomplishment in the development of S4, is that we have been able to solve problems and create delight for both the homeowner and for the installer.”
The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” is awarded for ground-breaking design and is the highest accolade in the competition. This prize is reserved for the best products in their category with only the top 1.5% of entrants receiving this honour.
Centor will be joining other winners to receive its award at the glamorous Red Dot Gala ceremony in Essen, Germany, on 8 July 2019.
