Edge Clamped Glass

Arguably Novum’s most simple, yet easily adjustable structural glazing system can be implemented fully flush glazed or with small economical exposed caps.

What Is An ECG System?

The ECG-System is when the glass is mechanically clamped at discrete points along its edges to meet strength and deflection needs, and typically requires no notching or drilling. Panels can be oriented vertically, sloped, or overhead, and can be of almost any shape.

Why Choose Edge Clamped Glass

The Novum ECG-System is used wherever flat panels are to be supported along their edges, but not continuously.

CUSTOM IN APPLICATION

Edge Clamped Glass is a contemporary but affordable design aesthetic where the glass “floats.” It is extremely well suited to angular changes in surface planes such as freeform structures. Controlled glass joint widths and panels can be 2, 3, or 4-sided support depending on applied loads and sizes. There is also a nominal interruption of glass surface for maximum transparency and can provide a flush glazed aesthetic to your design.

FACTORY FINISHED

Glass can be monolithic, laminated, or insulated and of any thickness. Many glass coatings and frit patterns are available. Standard clamp finishes are aluminium clear anodised – white or black - and cap plate options include stainless steel #4, #8, or bead blasted. Other aluminium colour choices or custom cap plate shapes are available. For insulated glass units, the top cover plate can be replaced by hidden Grade 316 stainless steel toggle fasteners to achieve an uninterrupted glass-silicone surface.

ASSEMBLY

Economical clamped fitting is easily adjustable after the glass is set and ideal for fast installation. Clamps can take dead loading and applied wind loads as necessary.
