Rebel Applied with Intelligent Equipment Wins FacilitiesNet 2020 Vision Award

Judged by an independent panel of facility executives, Daikin’s Rebel Applied with Intelligent Equipment was selected as a winner in the HVAC Products category


MINNEAPOLIS, MN - August 20, 2020

Daikin Applied was recognized for excellence in product design by FacilitiesNet in its second annual Vision Awards program. Based on cost savings, technological advancements, efficiency/productivity, and tenant satisfaction, Daikin’s Rebel Applied™ with Intelligent Equipment® was selected as a winner in the HVAC Products category. FacilitiesNet produces trade magazines that help facilities professionals manage and operate their buildings at peak efficiency. They created the Vision Awards program to honor innovation and excellence in products that contribute to the efficient and profitable operations and management of institutional and commercial buildings in the United States.

"We received more entries than last year when we launched the Vision Awards," said Dan Hounsell, editor-in-chief of Facility Maintenance Decisions magazine. "Our panel of experts had to make very difficult decisions to crown the winners. It shows how many terrific products are available to help facilities professionals in their day to day.” More than 150 products entered this year's Vision Awards program. The entries were judged by an independent panel of six facilities executives.

“Deliver industry-leading design and efficiency, and maintain the flexibility and control building owners and facility managers have come to rely on — that was the focus of our development efforts,” said Matt Dodds, product manager for Applied Air Handlers. “Rebel technologies have broken new ground since we introduced premium, high-IEER units to the rooftop market in 2012. We’re changing the landscape again with this next generation.”

Vision Award winners will be recognized on and in the December 2020 issue of Building Operating Management magazine, which is distributed to more than 200,000 facility executives.
