Built to Forge Ahead

Our core purpose since 1984 has been to inspire and enable sustainable communities. We design, engineer, fabricate and install with hopes that each product and solution we champion fosters harmony for every generation. Duo-Gard is a leading innovator in high-performance translucent walls, illuminated walls and ceilings, as well as custom canopies, shelters and outdoor structures. We custom design/build around your specs.

Company Leadership

Although our success is built on the shoulders of an entire team of project managers, design engineers, daylight modeling experts, technology integrators, fabricators and a host of partners and support, we are guided by the experience and strength of our company's leadership.

The Duo-Gard Difference...

What makes Duo-Gard different? Viewpoint. Vision. Versatility.
Do you look at the market to see what’s out there? We look to see what’s not out there. What does the market need in systems – not only right now but also for the future? Then we create it. By researching – evaluating – integrating advances in materials, technology and concepts, we take you ahead of the curve with not just the right solution but the best solution for your project.

Sure, others make canopies, daylighting systems and outdoor structures. Others say “Here’s our system; you build your project around it.” We say “Here’s your project; we’ll build our solution around it.” Big difference. Others ask “Can we do this?” We ask “How can we do this?” Big difference.

Architect Jim Vander Molen called it “Duo-Gard’s spirit of experimentation” and said it’s a major factor in working with Duo-Gard’s team.

This leads to innovation that produces products like our patented Sleekline Translucent Monolithic Canopy System, which combines high performance in a contemporary, low-profile, high-strength structure. Like our architecturally aesthetic bus, bike and special-purpose shelters, which help establish and enhance the identity of communities across the country.

We don’t work for you. We work with you in true collaboration.
