Home Depot says Glidden Cool Touch reduces surface temperature by up to 20% compared with products of a similar color because of its Cool Surface technology. It’s available in paint and stain that can be tinted. 


Husky rechargeable flashlights include long-lasting rechargeable batteries but also work with traditional alkaline batteries in emergency situations. The twist-to-focus head allows for a narrow spotlight or wide floodlight projection. Its USB-C charging capability allows for the recharging of other devices, and the battery indicator light keeps users alerted to charge levels. Makita Home Depot Innovation finalist

Makita XGT 40V cordless power tools are powerful pro-grade tools that offer best-in-class performance, the retailer says. Makita XGT concrete tools, including rotary hammers and power saws, are the first tools of their kind to provide the power of gas in a cordless product. Makita was the first vendor to bring 40V power tools to Home Depot’s shelves.
