Safe Edge Accessories:
Corten Steel Pegs: The quantity of pegs will be dependent on your application, although 4-5 stakes per length would suit most applications if recessing the edging into the ground, with additional pegs required to form curves. Fixings: Self tapping Metal roofing screws, or pre drill with pop rivets.

It is used for joining two lengths of edging, or joining the edging to the internal/external corners, allowing for a seamless finish along the top of your edging.

What is Weathering Steel (Corten Steel)?
Weathering steel, best-known under the trademark COR-TEN steel and sometimes written without the hyphen as "Corten steel", is a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years. Perfect for creating a beautiful home without hassle.
"Weathering" means that due to their chemical compositions, these steels exhibit increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion compared to other steels. This is because the steel forms a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather. The corrosion-retarding effect of the protective layer is produced by the particular distribution and concentration of alloying elements in it. The layer protecting the surface develops and regenerates continuously when subjected to the influence of the weather. In other words, the steel is allowed to rust in order to form the 'protective' coating.
*Rust metals screens must be kept dry (not stacked together) until installation to avoid oxidization*.
