DALLAS – (December 28, 2022) – Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope, Inc. (OBE), the leading manufacturer, fabricator, and distributor of architectural hardware solutions, glass and glazing systems in North America, is pleased to announce its Terra Swing™ Access Door has been named to the 2022 Top 75 Product List by Building Design+Construction magazine.

Each year, the Building Design+Construction editorial team evaluates the vast universe of new and updated products, materials, and systems for the U.S. building design and construction market. The best-of-the-best products make up the annual 75 Top Products report. Products are selected based on their level of innovation and overall usefulness to the industry.

OBE released Terra Swing™ Access as an extension of the Terra Swing™ entrance product series. The game-changing terrace door is uniquely crafted to make building exteriors more accessible while offering uncompromising performance.

Truly a differentiated market solution, Terra Swing™ Access is designed with industry-leading compliance to current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. It features an integral 10″ kick rail and five pounds or less operating force per American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 513. The small 1/2″ threshold allows for easy access to outdoor spaces while eliminating the need to recess the concrete during installation to accommodate the threshold, making installation faster and easier.

Terra Swing™ Access is available in OBE’s thermal and visual performance modelling tool, SystemSelectTM so architects and glazing contractors can quickly view performance for entire glass and metal systems as well as download specs, documents and LEED v.4 reports in seconds. Learn more at
