Reimagine residential storm doors with aesthetic, simple, and manufacturable design characteristics.
Product Researchers studied the industry and created design inspiration boards to stimulate creativity and ideation.
DISHER discussed, collaborated, and generated many features, ideas, and concepts that met the design criteria. Product feature ideas were gathered, organized, and compared in a Pugh Analysis Chart to guide decision making in the design direction.
Industrial Designers worked with Engineers to create viable concepts of various mechanisms and materials to meet the design goals and manufacturing requirements. A dozen 18” maquettes were built to test the feasibility of various latch-attachment methods. Later a full-scale prototype was built of the top concept.
The manufacturer was pleased with the storm door designs and prototypes. The IP was sold to a supplier.
