Frequently Asked Questions

Are ExcelEdge products flexible?

Yes, most of our products can be formed to create curves. For special shapes or complex designs, we recommend using our pre-forming service which is available on some of our aluminium and steel edging products. Some of our very heavy-duty edging may also need some additional equipment to form them into curves.  Please note that the 6mm Verge edging cannot be curved by hand, however we do have the facility in our factory.

I don’t know which type of metal edging to choose; aluminium or steel. Could you please advise me?

Aluminium is a relative newcomer to the landscape edging market whilst steel has been used for many years. Aluminium offers many benefits that are causing more and more people to select it, such as its inherent corrosion resistant properties, its excellent strength to weight ratio and the unique AluExcel design that makes installation so simple.

Steel is still popular – in particular the CorTen® finish.  Steel is a much harder metal than aluminium, sometimes making it the preferred choice where it is raised out of the ground and where is will be exposed to high levels of pedestrian or vehicle traffic.

In many cases it does come down to the finish that is required.  Aluminium finish is silver but this will soften to a subtle grey finish over time.

Does aluminium rust?

No.  Aluminium forms its own oxidization layer over time which will cause it to slightly dull in colour to a subtle grey.

Can I cut your edging products and how?

All our edging can be cut using either an angle grinder with a suitable cutting disc or by using a hacksaw.

Where can I buy ExcelEdge products?

ExcelEdge products are available from stock, direct from Kinley Systems, or through one of our selected distributors or merchants. All the main builder’s merchants have credit accounts with us. We have European distribution centres in France, Germany, Spain, and Scandinavia. European buyers should contact us to obtain details of our nearest European distributor.

Why is ExcelEdge the best choice of edging for my landscape project?

ExcelEdge is the market-leading brand in the UK and Europe, and we offer the widest range of products across aluminium, steel and plastic edging systems. This way, we can offer unbiased advice to provide the best solution for your specific edging applications.

Are ExcelEdge products suitable for hard and soft landscaping?

Yes. For a quick product selection guide please view our interactive edging selector.

What is the minimum advisable radius for curving your edging to?

To curve our edging by hand we advise a minimum radius of approximately 1 – 1.2 metres.  This will depend on the height and thickness of the edging being used. For exact circles or complex shapes contact us by email or on +44(0)1580 830688 for advice on our specialist pre-forming service.
