Can ADA 60-P take this weight ?

I will be starting this new project with ADA 60-P [24"x12"14" LxBxH].
For the lighting, I cannot drill my ceiling and put the hanging pandent lighting [I'd be making a makersLED kit].
I came across this- http://www.aquastyleonline.com/produ...g-Bracket.html

It says that iit weighs around 1.8 kgs. So my question is- if I'll put this and a LED light unit on the edges of my tank, will it be a problem ??
Will my tank break ??

Well I asked the website and they told me if I'll use it over a 24" tank, it'll way less than 1 kg. And since the glass will be 8mm, it wont be a proble. So I've ordered the bracket.
Lets see how does it fit my tank.
