Curving Profiles Over 290mm High:
You can actually shape our large edging profiles more aggressively than the lower heights without kinking the top lip. This is because the length of edging has significantly more steel, giving it a more rigid backbone. It can help to have a friend help shape the edging, especially with the last 20cm or so, it is quite hard to get a tight curve into the last little bit as there isn’t any leverage. You can always shape your edges, cut off the last little bit, and use it as a connector if you find you can’t get enough shape into the last 20cm.
Producing Corners & Angles:
It can be quite difficult to produce angles on site with these larger profiles, as they are significantly stronger. We highly recommend that you purchase a pre-made corner piece to keep the installation as simple as possible.
