The session will focus on: “New Product KC Pre-Launch” – Better Façade Connections to Steel Structures.

This session will focus on local introduction of a revolutionary new method of façade design and install. 

Edge of slab for steel construction hasn’t changed in 70 years!   Today, two Kansas City companies have joined forces to launch the next generation façade connection to steel. Patents have been granted, product testing completed and manufacturing ready to release.   Join us for a Sneak Peek at the new J-Edge Anchor System advantages:

  • Increases speed of façade installation.
  • Tested for required façade loads.
  • Eliminates costly welding at the edge of slab.
  • Provides better load path and increased anchor capacity.
  • Allows quick installation of construction safety railing.
  • Allows easy field adjustments for anchor installation.


The Session is open to all trades and professions related to building design, construction, maintenance and property management.   Architects, Building Structural Engineers, General Contractors and Glazing Contractors are encouraged to attend.
