CORE EDGE - Flexible steel edgings & pre-rolled garden rings
A complete range of flexible steel edgings and pre-rolled tree rings designed to create the perfect edge restraint for a variety of landscaping applications. The ground spike incorporates a unique fold along its centre to provide maximum strength, reinforcing the spike, making it ideal for use in tougher ground conditions. If soft ground is encountered, a rebar extension simply fixes through the ground spike to provide additional stability. The entire range is quick and easy to install with no specialist tools required and is available in a range of finishes.

Weathering Steel (Cor-Ten)
Our ASTM A588 weathering steel has a unique look and naturally oxidizing finish that make it especially desirable for many architectural projects. Weathering steels are a group of steel alloys which were developed to remove the need for painting which form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the elements.
Made popular by the U.S Steel Co. and best-known under the US trademark COR-TEN® it resists the corrosive effects of all types of weather by forming a coating of dark brown oxidation over the metal. In simple terms the steel is allowed to rust and that rust forms a protective coating that slows the rate of future corrosion.
Supplied in it’s raw state, please allow 6-8 weeks for oxidation to occur.
Our galvanised steel edgings are finished with a 110 micron polyester powder coating that is designed for external use. This coating prevents colour fade from UV exposure and forms a weather resistant barrier gauranteeing a 20+ year product life.
The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under extreme heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. This skin creates a hard wearing flexible finish that is tougher than conventional paint and improves scratch resistance.
Connecting Mechanism For Domestic and HD Trade Edgings
The CORE Edge dual locking mechanism provides a rigid connection between adjoining edges, helping to provide an almost seamless connection.
Using a pair of thin nosed pliers pull both of the thin tabs through the slit in the adjacent edging and rotate them back on themselves.
Once connected… if more hands are available, pre-joined edges can be installed as one continuous length. Making it far easier to create larger curves or complex shapes.
