New EZ RAD system reduces shaped muntin fabrication and installation time by up to 60% over conventional methods.
The days of cumbersome grid placement on shaped glass are over as Edgetech, the UK’s only dedicated warm edge technology manufacturer, announces the launch of its revolutionary EZ RAD grid placement system as part of its 360 Product Offering. 360 is the total business support package from Edgetech. The EZ RAD system provides tremendous time savings and flawless consistency so that complicated jobs that once took up to 30 minutes can be easily achieved in less than ten.
Andy Jones, Managing Director of Edgetech UK explains: “EZ RAD drastically reduces production time by assisting in the assembly, transportation and placement of grids on washed or unwashed glass. The 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 removed.
“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. We invest a lot of time and money in ensuring our customers have what they need to differentiate themselves from the competition and EZ RAD is an addition to our product range that does just this.”
