Edgetech Introduces Revolution in Grid Placement for Shaped Glass

Edgetech I.G. and Nupro Products Inc., recently announced the EZ RAD grid placement system, which assists in the assembly, transportation and placement of grids on washed or unwashed glass.

"In my 33 years in the industry, I have always viewed grid placement as a cumbersome task in need of much improvement," said Gary Tucker, general manager, Nupro Products, Inc. "The EZ RAD system is a long-needed improvement that provides tremendous time savings and consistency. A complicated job that once took up to 30 minutes can now be done easily in less than ten minutes."

The EZ RAD system is made up of two parts: the upright easel/table and the D-ring. Grid installers merely place spokes on the easel over a template of the design. Next, the D-ring is placed over the grids and each spoke is locked in place individually into the D-ring. Equipped with the properly measured and completely assembled grid, the D-ring is then transported to a washed or unwashed pane of glass where the finished grid is applied and the D-ring remove

The upright easel is designed to handle panes of glass ranging in size from 18 to 96 inches. The D-ring assembly is available in small, medium and large sizes, depending on the diameter of the glass. Standard D-rings are designed for three and five spoke, half-round patterns. Most custom and signature grid patterns can be accommodated upon request.

"The ability to install grid patterns on unwashed glass is a great advantage of the EZ RAD system because installers do not need to worry about smudges and fingerprints," added Tucker. "By lessening the number of hands on washed glass, you are also lessening the chances for contamination of the end product."
