Fleetwood introduced thermal glass swing doors that feature the durable technology and industrial look that residential architects and custom builders seek from the company. An interesting note: because of high architect involvement, the company has gone from primarily producing commercial products to almost 90 percent residential. www.fleetwoodusa.net

Fleetwood also added an outdoor version of its hidden track. A drain pan with water outlets allows the track to sit flush with tile, concrete, or other indoor/outdoor flooring. www.fleetwoodusa.net

Velux Eliminating complex wiring challenges and providing homeowners with tax rebates, the new solar-powered operable skylight from Velux can be opened and closed 100 times with one full charge of the integrated battery. A rain sensor automatically closes the remote-controlled skylight and a built-in fail-safe feature prevents opening if the battery is too low to subsequently close the skylight. www.veluxusa.com

Velux also added solar-powered operation to its integrated electronic shades. Also qualifying for tax rebates, the shades come in more than 80 colors and patterns. www.veluxusa.com

Kolbe Windows & Doors Large-expanse sliding and accordion doors from Kolbe now offer more expansive views with fewer obstructions thanks to the company's new low-profile 3-inch door sills. www.kolbe-kolbe.com

Fitting Kolbe's contemporary door styles, the Dallas handle offers a clean geometric look in a brushed or polished nickel finish. www.kolbe-kolbe.com

Leviton Every client will want these USB charging receptacles from Leviton. Two USB ports charge a variety of electronics and sensors inside the receptacle monitor exactly how much power to provide devices. www.leviton.com

The USB receptacles are available in a variety of colors and can be retrofit into any standard outlet. The company expects to offer a four-device charging option by the end of the year. www.leviton.com

Omnia The new Prodigy collection from Omnia combines durable brass components with stylish plating in finishes appropriate for many different tastes and styles. Making the hardware line even more customizable, the backplates and handles can be mixed and matched. www.omniaindustries.com

Heatilator Providing ambiance and warmth to any room, the Simplifyre Modern electric fireplace updates the old-fashioned hearth with a high-tech light show. Either the flames or the ambient backlighting change colors at the press of a remote-controlled button. Select a black or white glass surround in 58- or 36-inch widths. www.heatilator.com

Daltile Glass mosaics in textured and mixed-material blends are all the rage for Daltile accent and wall tile collections. This Fanfare Intertwine uses slivers of arched glass in six different color blends to add texture to kitchen backsplashes or bathroom trim. www.daltile.com

Another new product from Daltile is this linear blend of glass and natural stone pieces stacked in an asymmetrical pattern. www.daltile.com

Daltile's take on milkglass with a variegated pattern also can be used as a room accent or whole wall covering. www.daltile.com

Kohler The touchless Sensate kitchen faucet from Kohler uses sophisticated design and technology to generate hands-free operation. By placing the sensors within the arch, only deliberate movements of the hands or any object will start or stop the water flow. www.kohler.com

Sherwin-Williams Harmony zero-VOC paints will now reduce toxic formaldehyde that might be off-gassing from carpets, cabinets, and adhesives in the home. The same odor-eliminating technology recently was enhanced to combat several aldehyde compounds in the air. Third-party GreenGuard testing backs up the company's claims. www.sherwin-williams.com

Look for Sherwin-Williams' dry-erase coatings, which will be available only to professional contractors, remodelers, and painters within the next two months. Two coats of this clear finish will turn any wall into a fun and useful dry-erase surface. www.sherwin-williams.com
