2017 Hot 50 Products

2017 Hot 50 Products

Our annual selection of the most innovative, creative and all-around sustainable products available to the building market.

Full List of 2017 Hot 50 Products

Not every product in our list is American made. When our editorial team chooses the Hot 50, we frankly don’t care about the country of origin. We care about big thinking and innovation. Albert Einstein was German. Elon Musk was born in South Africa. So what? I do want to know, however, whether a product will be available to U.S. builders and architects. That’s important.
We really enjoyed talking with the tech guys at Design & Construction Week in Orlando about product innovation. Across the board, they’re doing some great work. Huber’s ZIP panels now come in an insulating R-sheathing version. Moen has developed a water-saving “teenager-proof” shower control. This is one of the most uncompromised Hot 50 lists we’ve ever seen—full of genuine strides toward greater efficiency and net-zero living. Enjoy.
