METALCON Announces Top Three People’s Choice Award Winners

METALCON Peoples choice awards
October 25, 2022 at 12:00 p.m.

The three winners are innovative forces in the metal construction industry.

Exhibitors at this year’s METALCON were invited to nominate their top metal products in one of 15 product categories for the METALCON Top Products Award, and attendees were invited to vote on-site in Indianapolis for their top three choice products in the People’s Choice Awards. 

The 2022 METALCON People’s Choice Award winners are: 

First Place

Category: Walls

ATAS International, Inc. – Omawall™ PL with EVO™ 

Omawall™ PL with EVO™ is an architectural plate panel, manufactured in .10 thick aluminum ─ a great choice for high-end application, and is made fully of non-combustible materials. EVO™ is a patented panel extrusion attachment developed by Carter Architectural. Panels are prefabricated and field-cut, saving on installation time and costs by avoiding field-fabrication.  

Second Place

Category: Technology

RoofersCoffeeShop® – MetalCoffeeShop 

MetalCoffeeShop is an online community consisting of a progressive and informative website, podcasts, webinars, articles, classifieds and so much more that engages the metal industry. Focusing on all metal, including roofing, walls, HVAC, gutters and more, this site delivers information that builds businesses while enabling ongoing conversation. 

Third Place

Category: Structures

Roof Hugger, LLC – Roof Hugger Retrofit Sub-Purlins 

These sub-purlins represent the first structurally correct metal roof retrofit framing members specifically designed to conform with existing industry standards. They are made of the same thickness and tensile strength structural steel as the existing building, plus they have been tested as a system on typical metal building framing, providing proven performance for design and code compliance. 

To be eligible, products must have been introduced to the market after January 1, 2021, and their manufacturer is a 2022 METALCON exhibiting company. Winners were determined by an electronic vote on-site.   

“After a wonderful show in Indianapolis with so many cutting-edge technologies and solutions on the show floor, we are excited to announce our top three METALCON People’s Choice Award winners,” said Judy Geller, METALCON Vice President of Tradeshows. “We look forward to seeing what’s in store for next year’s showcase of top products and technologies in Las Vegas.” 


Established in 1991, METALCON is the only annual tradeshow and conference devoted exclusively to the application of metal in design and construction. METALCON’S success is based on a dynamic exhibit hall, extensive educational programs and interactive learning opportunities. Produced by PSMJ Resources, Inc., in partnership with the Metal Construction Association, next year’s show takes place in Las Vegas from Oct. 18 to 20, 2023.
