Edge-Tie™ Channel

Edge-Tie™ Bolt

The Edge-Tie system T-bolt creates bolted connections along the continuous channel in our unique Edge-Tie system for installing cladding or curtain walls.

Edge-Tie™ Guard Post

The Edge-Tie system’s temporary guard post creates an easy-to-install and reusable safety railing that can remain in place while the cladding is installed. This can decrease the cladding installation time, reducing tie-off occurrences while still providing fall protection.
