Permaloc offers a variety of painted colors to match the aesthetics of different installations. We use an electrostatically applied, baked on paint process known as Duraflex. This is a flexible paint that will not flake or chip.

Aluminum metal has very different properties than steel. It will not rust, rot, or break down in any way.
Permaloc edging systems contain engineered connection systems. These specialized connections will not come apart in the ground like connections used in most plastic edging. The durability of the aluminum product also keeps it from becoming brittle or damaged due to weather or other outside forces.
Our edging is manufactured to resist frost heave. Our unique extrusion accompanied by our 12” barbed stakes also help keep the edging in the ground.
When installed according to our recommended installation instructions, the edging will be lower than your mower blade, keeping it safe from mower damage. This also allows the mower to mow directly over the edging, eliminating the need to use the power trimmer along the edging. However, the edging will hold up to routine maintenance without suffering damage.
90 degree corners can be formed by cutting the material from the bottom about half way through. Next, take a board or a brick and place it along your cut, lift the free end of the material towards the brick or board helping form your 90 degree corner. Cutting the material from the bottom keeps the top bead of the product solid and safe.
We recommend cutting the material with a hacksaw.
Permaloc manufactures a patented accessory called the Grade Change Connector. This item allows you to adjust the edging to run up a change in grade of any angle. Then simply place another Grade Change Connector to level the edging back out.
A measuring wheel is the quickest and easiest way to measure for how much edging you will need. If you don't have access to a measuring wheel, you can always use a rope or a hose that you know the length of. Lay out the design of the bedding area, and lay the rope or hose along the projected bedding area and count the number of lengths you need. For example: if you have a 25' hose and laid out a design that takes 3 lengths of your hose to reach the end, you are looking for approximately 75' total for your project.
