The retailer recognized 10 products that are in its stores in its annual 2023 Innovation Awards, including:
Second runner up
Glidden Cool Touch exterior floor paint keeps porches, patios, pool decks and walkways cooler. 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 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.
