Together By Design

Our core purpose since 1984 has been to inspire and enable sustainable communities. We design, engineer, fabricate, and install with the hopes that each product and solution we champion fosters harmony for every generation. We are the leading innovator in high-performance translucent walls, architectural canopies, bus shelters, bike shelters, smoking shelters, and outdoor structures. We custom design/build around our client’s specifications.


Duo-Gard’s Brand Promise of Together by Design reflects the company’s relentless drive to collaborate and cultivate trust at every point along the solution-building journey. From vision alignment to advanced engineering and from total fabrication through installation, the Duo-Gard difference shines through.


There are certain hallmarks associated with well-orchestrated projects in our industry. True successful projects are marked by accurate planning and coordination, deep experience and knowledge, diverse source materials and an obsession for quality and results. These traits formed the framework behind Duo-Gard’s vision pursuit pathway: Achieve 360º™.
