All Lengths are 2.44m
All profile heights 150mm and below, it is recommended at least 1/2 of the edging to be buried in the ground.
All profile heights above 185mm it is recommended 1/3 of the edging to be buried in the ground.
Lenghts with the profile of 150mm and below, all angles can be bent on site. All profile heights 185mm and above require the purchase of corner pieces.
All profile heights can be curved to a radius of 800mm on site. Tight Curves, special angles and custom work – please call us for help and pricing.
Stakes come in 8 different sizes. Default is 3 stakes per length, but it is recommended 4 stakes per length for straight runs of 230mm profile height and above.
The general rule is the stake is to be twice as long as the profile height (eg 185mm profile height use the 400mm stakes).
When using the 390mm and 580mm lengths for retaining purposes it is recommended that the stakes be concreted in.
Place the connector on your leading end prior to connecting both lenghts.
If working to a line, set pegs approx 1000 above your finished height so you can tap the lengths down to achieve an accurate and solid finish.
When connecting the lengths together use a clamp on the connection joint to make joining even more of a breeze
