AthletEdge Installation Instructions

AthletEdge Sport Surface EdgingINSTALLATION

  1. Prepare the subbase and aggregate base course. The base must be properly
    compacted and extend 6” to 12” beyond the edge of the pavement installation. The base immediately beneath the restraint must be consistent or “level”. (Diagram A)
  2. IMPORTANT: A 3/8” gap must be left between sections during installation to allow for the aluminum to expand when heated by hot-mix asphalt. (Diagram B)
  3. Set and anchor AthletEdge according to recommended anchoring guidelines
    shown above. Anchor the ends of each section. For added stability, use
    additional spikes.
  4. Corners should be made by bending a single section to form the angle. Additional cutting of the base may be required for tight angles. (Diagram C)
  5. Avoid excess asphalt temperatures to minimize aluminum expansion.
  6. Lay asphalt adjacent to and approximately 1/2” over the top of the AthletEdge
    (depending on expected compaction results).
  7. Compact the first pass with the desired equipment approximately 6” to 12” in
    from the AthletEdge. Subsequent passes may be directly against or over the
    edge to ensure complete compaction of asphalt.
  8. Following completion of the asphalt installation, backfill and compact adjacent
    topsoil to within 1/2” of the top of the restraint.

NOTE: When installing Aluminum edging in direct contact with ACQ treated lumber we recommend installing a barrier material such as Grace Vycor® Deck Protector™.
