An ecosystem of signature projects

We believe in ideas and partnering with like-minded design and development professionals to see those ideas realised.

“No man is an island”, and neither is EDGE. We strategically established a network where training, products, logistics and strong partnerships unite. We call this our Ecosystem.

Projects incorporating EDGE Architectural Glazing Systems benefit from a community of people, organisations, processes and elements interacting to create a system, the EDGE Ecosystem. These components tightly link together to assure exquisite performance.

EDGE Ecosystem: your environment for big ideas, practical solutions and fantastic projects

The EDGE ecosystem offers reliability, resources and real support for our ecosystem partners. The EDGE team earns your trust through consistent customer service and ongoing development of tested, innovative products.

The Research & Development team at EDGE Architectural invested, and continues to invest, significant consideration in every facet of the U-MAX™ and MAX™ suites. This scrutiny was liberally applied when it came to selecting our partner suppliers. Choose EDGE and you benefit from an ecosystem of companies and local people that stand behind every architectural window and door frame we deliver. Most important, you get a team of experts to support you.

When you think projects, think EDGE and the EDGE Ecosystem. From specification to fabrication, and every step in between, EDGE Architectural drives projects. No other customer-supplier partnership parallels the support, quality and knowledge found in the EDGE Architectural Ecosystem.

When you choose EDGE, you become a principle element of the EDGE Ecosystem. Your projects will soar with Australian product warranties, engineering and product design support, architectural specification, and a total window and door product offering that is revolutionary to the Australian construction industry. EDGE has the resources and expertise to be with you at every step of your journey. Together, we’ll propel projects from conception to realisation.

After all, we believe in ideas and the projects they inspire.

It’s not a window, it’s a system. It’s the EDGE Ecosystem

The elements of the EDGE Ecosystem blend to deliver a project greater than the sum of its parts.

Our history of collaborative product development resulted in the EDGE DNA, every facet of which yields benefits for your projects. Our history of collaborating with customers on their projects resulted in the development of support people and tools you need.

The collaborative development of the EDGE features and benefits leads into our offering of additional services and supports. Partnering with EDGE Architectural means so much more than a beautiful window.

Capacity, flexibility, reliability

The strategic nature of the EDGE ecosystem gives us enormous capacity and great flexibility for meeting our customers’ needs. For example, we have local access to six powder coat lines and three anodizing lines. We can be nimble and responsive for large, custom or short notice projects. Our focus on finding Australian suppliers means you can rely on delivery dates and a stable supply chain.

Whether it’s Mammoth’s “secret formula” wheels or 3M’s passion for innovation and strength, the companies in the EDGE ecosystem share our drive, dependability and dedication. Their stories are woven into the EDGE story, which, in turn, becomes part of your project’s story.

Experience the difference our Ecosystem makes.

High strength 3M™ VHB™ tapes are used throughout industry to replace mechanical fastening for permanent assembly in many applications.

The 3M culture thrives on innovation. It’s an organization that’s so amazing at producing the amazing that people simply fold their products into daily life and forget how truly amazing each one is.

When the EDGE team saw the awesome benefits of 3M’s VHB tape for structural glazing, we wanted it in the EDGE ecosystem. Once we started working with the 3M people and experienced the level of service and support our customers would receive, we knew we made the right choice.
