INSTALLATION

Edge restraints are a key part of interlocking pavement systems. By providing lateral resistance to loads, they maintain continuity and interlock among the paving units. Without an appropriate edge restraint, the joints between pavers will open up under the forces of regular foot and vehicular traffic and with any freeze/thaw cycles.

Snap Edge should always be installed directly on top of the compacted aggregate base for proper support and to allow the spikes to grip securely. Bedding sand should be removed from the area where the edge restraint is to be installed; use the side of a trowel to remove the sand while being careful not to disturb the sand under the pavers on the edge.

The compacted aggregate base should extend at least 6” beyond the edge of the finished pavement to ensure the spikes will grip properly.

Cutting Snapedge for Radius Snip & Flex
When creating curves in your paving installation, the webbing on the back of Snap Edge® can be cut with a hacksaw or snipped with garden shears, allowing the edging to bend to the desired angle. This patented feature allows you to create flowing curves or sharp angles, without compromising on strength.
Use 10-inch Spikes to hold edging in place Place & Spike
As illustrated in the corresponding photo, the compacted gravel base should be extended 6" beyond the desired area of pavers to accommodate the Snapedge®. The edging can be spiked down using 10" landscape spikes. Spikes should be placed approximately 1' apart in straight sections and 6" apart in curved areas.
The perfect edge for straight or radius The Perfect Edge
Using Snap Edge® as a perimeter for your paving stone installation ensures a sharp clean edge, especially on curved areas and around trees. Snap Edge® prevents lateral movement of the pavers, even in extreme freeze-thaw weather conditions or high vehicular traffic.
Cutting a soldier course Cutting Your Edge
Snap Edge® also acts as a perfect guideline for cutting your pavers. As the corresponding photo illustrates, you can run the pavers as close to the edge as possible, then using a brick to mark the curve, you can create precise clean cuts to the individual bricks, ensuring a tight fit and a permanent solution.
Leveling the sand Leveling
Snap Edge® can also be used as a tool for creating a level plane. This can easily be achieved by using a notched board as illustrated. This technique allows you to achieve extreme accuracy and levelness, as well as allowing you greater control and accuracy when sloping your paved areas to provide proper drainage.
Snap Edge works 'out of site' Out of Sight
Snap Edge® is easy to use, provides a permanent secure edge for your pavers for many years to come. It is capable of withstanding almost any type of vehicular traffic and prevents horizontal movement of your driveway, patio or walkways. Perhaps it's most beautiful feature, is that it accomplishes all this without even being seen.


SPIKES

Use a 3/8” x 12” or 3/8” x 10” spike. Non-galvanized spikes are preferred as the rust will help secure them in place.

For residential non-vehicular applications, install spikes every 16”. For residential vehicular and radius applications, 12” spacing is recommended.


RADIUS

For radius applications simply snip the support bar on the bottom to bend the edging to create smooth inside and outside curves.


WHY SNAP EDGE?

Snap Edge is a better alternative to a troweled-in-place concrete toe restraint. A concrete toe is prone to failure in freeze/thaw conditions and makes changes to the original design difficult. Quality can also vary due to variations in materials and/or labor.

Some plastic edge restraint systems require you to buy one piece for straight sections and another for radius sections. Snap Edge can accommodate both conditions; simply snip the back support to bend the product where needed.

Snap-Edge’s patented section-to-section connection system keeps bedding sand from leaking where two pieces of edge restraint meet. Sand loss at these intersections can cause depressions in the pavement.

Some plastic restraint products have a mostly or fully solid bottom, which makes it difficult to grow grass right up to the edge restraint due to the shallow depth of the soil. Snap Edge’s open base design allows grass to root properly and protects it against brown out in extreme heat.

Both steel and aluminum are typically more expensive than Snap Edge and are difficult to reshape after being bent.

The sun will not damage Snap Edge restraint. The materials used to manufacture Snap Edge are resistant to harmful UV rays.

Edge restraint is needed on every side of pavement not up against a permanent structure, such as a house or concrete curb. Measure the total lineal feet needed and divide by 8 to determine how many pieces to buy (e.g. 32 lineal feet of edging/8 = 4 pieces of Snap Edge). Snap Edge’s “one piece does all” design lets you use it for both straight and curved sections of pavement.

Snap Edge is backed by a lifetime product warranty against any material defects.
