Small but strong, the locking comb is a crucial component of the Velox Rapid Edge securing the triangular supports and planter edging in place. Unlike other commercial planter edging systems, with Velox Rapid Edge there is no plethora of nuts and bolts to cross thread or under fasten. Therefore, human error is eliminated, and problematic installs solved.

Great Form & Strength
Over a decade since the introduction of raised planter edging, it can be considered a success story. It is found everywhere, from retail parks to residential roof spaces. It is easy to see why – raised edging is a great way to accommodate urban planting with soft landscape. But like Henry Ford’s Model T, even the best innovations have plenty of scope for development. Today’s planter edging is no different from the planter edging first used 10 years ago. Over those 10 years, flaws in the original concept have surfaced such as the difficulty of installation and the reliance on unsustainable steel and concrete. These flaws are addressed by Velox Rapid Edge.
Traditional commercial planter edging is difficult enough to install at ground level let alone on roof tops. On roof tops, the drainage board needs to be cut, and the concrete foundation poured and allowed to dry. This is a time consuming and complex process, and concrete is an unsustainable material. Project deadlines and the risk of exceeding weight limits are ever present. Next, the planter Edge is positioned and precisely aligned, then fixed into place using thousands of fixings and power tools. Again, this is a time-consuming process made slower by the need to comply with White Finger Regulations. Water penetration is a significant consideration at roof level. When securing the planter edge to the concrete there is a risk of the fixings penetrating the waterproof layer.
The install process of Velox represents a quantum leap in ease of install compared to the traditional system. Here’s why; Velox is a boltless self-weighted system. This eliminates the need for cutting the drainage board and concrete foundations, reducing the carbon footprint caused by the concrete. The Velox panel & gusset system locks together with ease, which means there is no need for power tools or thousands of fixings.
