AsphaltEdge Aluminum Paving Restraint


Aluminum Asphalt Restraint

AsphaltEdge™ is a patented line of flexible, L-shaped aluminum asphalt restraints. One of the biggest drawbacks of asphalt compared to concrete and brick is an inconsistent edge. With Permaloc AsphaltEdge, you get a strong, uniform 90-degree edge. It installs quickly and easily, making your work stand out and providing a “finished look” – an excellent compliment to any asphalt installation.


Product Description

INSTALLATION - ASPHALTEDGE
+ FEATURES
  • Engineered to extend the life of asphalt pavement by helping to prevent broken edges, providing uniform thickness throughout the pavement surface, and providing a finished, maintained look along the asphalt border.
  • Permaloc’s patented AsphaltEdge is the only product specifically designed to be installed and perform as an integral restraint system for asphalt.
  • AsphaltEdge is designed for asphalt over aggregate, asphalt overlay, and asphalt over concrete. It has residential, commercial and industrial applications.
+ SPECIFICATIONS
  • Material: 6005 Aluminium Alloy
  • Thickness: 3∕16”
  • Height: 1”, 1½”, 2”, 2½”, 3”, 4”

+ APPLICATIONS
  • The L-shaped aluminium asphalt restraints are flexible.
  • With AsphaltEdge, you can get a strong, uniform 90-degree edge.
  • It installs quickly and easily with an excellent “finished look”.
  • This is engineered to extend the life of asphalt pavement by helping prevent broken edges and providing uniform thickness throughout the pavement surface.
+ METHOD OF INSTALLATION
  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 AsphaltEdge 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 AsphaltEdge (depending on expected compaction results).
  7. Compact the first pass with the desired equipment approximately 6” to 12” in from the AsphaltEdge. 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.
