EverEdge products are available in a wide range of materials and finishes to suit any and all jobs.
Mild steel is the raw form of steel as it comes out of the mill. It is untreated and will rust over a period of time. All conditions are different but, depending on the thickness of the material used, on average mild steel will last between 5 - 8 years
Mild steel can be treated with a layer of zinc to protect it from weathering. Zinc is made up of a number of properties which prevent it from oxidising making it the ideal material to coat and protect mild steel
All EverEdge products can be powder coated in a variety of colours to match virtually any design. Powder coating is a process where a heavy duty polyester powder is sprayed onto the steel before it is baked in a very hot oven, a process that bonds the powder to the steel. The most popular colour for EverEdge edging is brown as it mimics the natural edge of a lawn or flowerbed. However, other colours are available from stock whilst an even greater range can be supplied to most specifications
Cor-Ten is a brand name for a steel invented by United States Steel. It was developed to provide a very long lasting material, initially for use on the railways. Cor-Ten is designed to rust but, unlike mild steel, not break down. A layer of rust forms around the raw steel underneath, effectively protecting it from further weathering. Most Cor-Ten steel products will be supplied in their raw steel form and will take up to 5 months to form the rusty patina which will give the reddy, orange finish. No rusty pattern is identical to another so every corten steel item will have a completely unique finish determined by the exact climate patterns around where it is situated
