Edge-Tie™ System 

Edge-Tie™ System

On This Page

Connect cladding or curtain walls faster and easier with the patented Edge-Tie system from Simpson Strong-Tie®. Our system uses a unique extruded steel beam shape and pour stop combination. It provides higher strength than typical bent plates, and fits any steel building with no height limitations. An innovative continuous channel minimizes anchor attachment planning, and simplifies installation or adjustment of cladding connections. The Edge-Tie system uses a bolted facade connection, which requires no field welding and allows for fast installation with less labor. It also includes a reusable, bolted guardrail attachment that can remain in place during and after curtain wall installation. With our strong, versatile and highly flexible system, you’ll enclose buildings quickly and reduce overall project schedules and costs.

Key Features

  • The Edge-Tie features facilitate time-saving solutions when installing cladding
  • Welding of the Edge-Tie to the structural beam is done before being placed on the structure; all welding can be done in the fabrication shop  
  • Bolting the cladding to a continuous channel gives installers at the jobsite more flexibility to adjust the placement of connections if the alignment is imperfect  
  • The extruded steel and the connections outperform traditional methods 
  • The extruded steel creates a straighter edge to work with than traditional bent plates provide, necessitating fewer field adjustments
