Why Steel Kerbing Makes For Lighter Work Than Concrete
Bison steel landscape edging is a revolutionary new product from Kinley Systems Limited of East Sussex. Developed in Kinley’s own innovation centre and manufactured solely in the UK, it provides a more advanced alternative to traditional cast concrete pin kerbing, and one of its main benefits is its lightweight, low bulk design.
- 67% lighter than concrete, so safer and easier to handle
- significantly less weight/space to store and transport
- easier to offload and carry around site
- faster and simpler to install with less labour/less fatigue so more work can be done in a week/per man-hour
- less obtrusive – better for resin paths and driveways
Steel kerbing punches above its weight
Less bulk and weight = lower storage and transport costs
Installation at the speed of lighter kerbing
Bison steel kerbing is so light that it can easily be installed single-handedly. Less weight means less fatigue, so installation can be completed in a shorter timeframe.
P.S. – Bison is also held in place with fixings rather than wet concrete haunching, so as soon as it’s installed, the next stage of the project can be started.
Lower bulk for higher kerb appeal
The narrow width of Bison steel kerbing – 7mm, compared with 50mm for concrete – means that when all landscaping surfaces have been laid the kerbing is so inconspicuous that it’s almost invisible. This has great potential for landscape design, allowing contrasting hard-hard or hard-soft areas to adjoin without an ugly strip of concrete between them to detract from their colours and textures.
