The already popular Levigato, available from JD (UK) Ltd, is distinguished by conceptual design, neat style and structural integrity, thanks to the combined work of product engineers at Alutech and leading Italian design company, Pininfarina. Dating back to 1955, the Red Dot Award for Product Design is considered one of the most prestigious awards in industrial design. Entries are evaluated by a jury of 40 international experts who only award a Red Dot to products that win them over with their high design quality. The sleek, modern design of the Levigato Operator is complemented by premium product quality and reliable functionality. Receiving this international award, once again, confirms the excellent work Alutech do to provide the best possible products for its customers. “I want to express my warmest congratulations to the ALUTECH Group regarding their remarkable success at the Red Dot Design Award 2018. This award is a recognition of the ALUTECH automation innovative design and, once again, it demonstrates that the company is on the right track. When I talk about a quality product, I do not mean just an attractive product. Levigato drives combine excellent design and functionality. The designers and engineers that created this product, managed to understand their customers and what they need,” said Professor Piter Zek, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Design Award. A valued customer of JD (UK) Ltd added, “I think it’s fair to say the Garage Door Market was missing an operator for sectional and up and over doors that is a modern, stylish design, especially for those high-profile customers. When Alutech brought the prototype of the Levigato across to The Fit Show last year, we couldn’t wait to give it a try for ourselves. The Levigato is easy to set up and is a good, powerful unit. The added bonus is that it only needs 20mm headroom, which is great. Our customers so far have loved them, even down to the remotes, which are like most modern car keys! For the price, we won’t be buying motors elsewhere.” To try this award-winning automation for yourself, call JD (UK) Ltd on 01924 472924 or email .
