No specialist tools required and is available in a range of face/width combinations and finishes.
Our ASTM A588 weathering steel has a unique look. The naturally oxidizing finish makes it especially desirable for many architectural projects. Weathering steels are a group of steel alloys developed to remove the need for painting. Over time they 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®. They resist 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.
Powder Coated Heavy Duty Flexible Steel edging
The 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. It also forms a weather-resistant barrier guaranteeing 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.
Secure Connecting Mechanism
The CORE Edge dual locking mechanism provides a rigid connection between adjoining edges on our Heavy-duty flexible steel edging. 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.
Simply look back at your installed edging, if you notice any that appear to be unstable or leaning over slightly, just scrape back some soil from around the top of the spike to reveal the hole in the spike that houses the extension clip.
Insert the clip through one of these preformed holes, and place your foot against the edging to hold it upright.
Locate a pin into the clip and drive the pin into the ground using a mallet.
The clip expands as the pin passes through creating a secure connection with the edging and providing the additional support required.
