My name is Jeff Goodman and I am a brick paving installer. Over the years installing brick pavers I have constantly been frustrated securing the edging on my installations. Sometimes it grips and sometimes it doesn’t, throw another paver spike in because the one you just pounded in didn’t seem to “catch”. There never seems to be a consistently strong, tight grip and when there is, the edging may be secured to the base but there is nothing securing it to the brick. Edgetite paver edging spikes help solve these problems.
The idea of Edgetite’s paver spikes came during one of these projects when I began to wonder how I could keep my edging tighter to my installation. If there was some way to tilt the spike inward toward the brick field, it would add strength and the static pressure would hold the edging to the brick. And, if the freeze/thaw moved the spike at all, it would just push the edging tighter, helping reduce separation and the need for repairs down the road.
That’s when I thought of the angled tip. It would deflect the spike tip away from the installation as it’s hammered into the compacted base and tilt the head of the spike in, tightening the edging against the brick. The first time I pounded in a test spike I giggled like a little kid. There is definitely something here, I thought. As I pounded, the spike tip went in, the head tilted toward the field and the edging tightened up against the brick. At that point I knew we had something great.
