Velox Rapid Edge, a unique Raised Planter Edge system, designed not only to look great but to simplify installation, offer sustainable solutions and reduce C02 emissions

Natural progression to Velox Rapid Edge™

  • The begining
  • The pain… explained
  • The solution… made simple

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, and its easy to see why. Raised edging is a great way to accommodate urban planting with soft landscaping.

However, 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 concrete, which contributes highly towards C02 emissions. These flaws are addressed by Velox Rapid Edge™.

Conventional planter edging is difficult enough to install at ground level let alone at podium level. So why is this even more challenging at a higher level?

A traditional system requires a large concrete foundation to enable the raised edging to be bolted to. This poses a threefold challenge when looking at podium level installation;

1. Can your podium take the extra weight of the concrete? Approximate 110kg of concrete foundation is required per linear meter of planter edging. That’s a lot of weight if you require, say 600lm of edging - 66 tons to be precise!

2. Can your podium take the increase in height due to the extra concrete foundation build up?

3. Can you guarantee zero penetration to the waterproofing whilst fixing holes are drilled?

In addition to this, consider the extra CO2 emissions that are created from the production of the concrete. Approximately 780kg of CO2 emissions for every ton of concrete produced. With our 600lm example, that’s over 50tons of carbon! We also must look at the overall time taken to install a traditional system. Firstly, the concrete needs to be poured and allowed to cure, edging positioned and precisely aligned, then fixed into place using power tools and thousands of fixings. This is a time-consuming process made slower by the need to comply with White Finger Regulations.

Welcome to Velox Rapid Edge™ ....

This is a boltless, foundation free system, which eliminates all the challenges associated with a traditional planter edge system, while maximising soil volume and simplifying roof levels.

Why Velox Rapid Edge?

Swifter

Guaranteed to save time through shortening the on-site process. Typically, this system is 4x faster to install, cutting your onsite time by 75%!

Smarter

Guaranteed to reduce costs, weight & carbon emissions through simple and yet brilliant design. Typically, this system achieves a 90% cost saving for two reasons:

1 - 4x faster install.

2 - No concrete foundation required. Due to the absence of concrete, exceeded slab loadings and associated carbon emissions are eliminated.

Safer

Guaranteed to protect the roof build up structure. This system requires no on-site drilling, mitigating the high risk of penetration to the waterproofing.

On Lockdown

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, under fasten or loose. Therefore, human error is eliminated, time is saved, and problematic installs solved.

Secure by Nature

Whilst it may look simple and square,
the base plate is also no dafty! The gravitational force of the soil above each precisely sized and positioned base plate, cancels the horizontal force of the soil from within the planter. Nothing elso is required other than the force of nature, no concrete and no fixings!

Conventional planter edge system

• Complex fixing detail
• Substantial foundation required
• Lengthy installation process
• High risk of waterproof penetration
• Excessive combined costs
• Expected risk of exceeded loadings

Velox Rapid Edge™

• Less Components - Simple fixing detail
• Less Material - No foundation required
• Less Time - Rapid installation process
• Less Risk - No waterproof penetration
• Less Cost - Budget friendly combined costs
• Less Weight - No risk of exceeded loadings

Roof terrace or podium ....Velox Rapid Edge in its natural habitat.

...but does Velox Rapid Edge work at ground level?

Yes ...Swifter, Smarter, Safer still applies.

Safer

Guaranteed to reduce risk of injury due to the simplistic installation process. This safety aspect is twofold, no risk of white finger vibration and a quarter of the time exposed to site risks.

Working with Falls & Multi-Levels.

As we know, not all roof slabs are design and constructed as a single plane; where required BS6229 has recommendations for structural slabs to be laid to a fall. Also, roof / podium slab can often have multi-levels due to requirements on the level below.

However, does this system work in these areas? ....... Yes, due the flexibility of the system, Velox Rapid Edge is perfectly at home in these circumstances.

Option 1

This option shows suitable aggregate infill, laid to take up the variations in the structural slab providing a level plain. This is a simple yet clever method of dealing with falls whilst reducing fire risk and spread through limiting the size of the void between paving and substrate. The type of aggregate is project specific.

Option 2

This is where the Velox system takes up the variations in the structural slab whilst maintaining a top edge parallel to FFL. Whilst this option offers a simplified on site process, additional time is required during the design process.
