These Ipe wood edging strips with Biopin coating are designed to lower the risk of tripping on the snapping edges of the tiles. They are constructed with a sloping edge to provide a finished appearance to the tile decking. Because they require being secured to the foundation of the patio, they make the decking a more permanent feature; the row of tiles to which they are attached cannot be unsnapped and removed from the edging. However, the versatility to change the design of this decking is maintained since the other tiles can be unsnapped, removed, and rearranged. Ipe wood is recognized as a superior decking material, being naturally resistant to the elements and other wood deteriorating conditions, so it is ideal for permanent installation. In fact, NYC's famous boardwalk is constructed of Ipe wood precisely because of its ability to withstand the salt, water, and abrasion inherent to a popular public beach destination. Moreover, the edging strips are coated with Biopin, which protects them against wood destroying insects, and even fungus. This solution is composed of a water soluble salt, so it is not as toxic as other chemical protective coatings. As a result, customers can genuinely be assured of the durability of this decking material.

These edging strips are customizable and easy to install. Each strip is 3 feet in length and fits right over the edge of our tiles, whether they have the snapping edges or not. For installation on concrete, drill holes into the strips and mark the placement of the holes in the concrete foundation and drill into the concrete to create a hole slightly smaller than the screw that will be used. To complete the installation, stabilize the strips with concrete screws (sold in most hardware stores; they are blue with an attached drill bit). For installation on wood, simply nail the strips into place. Corner pieces will need to be cut at an angle with a miter saw or miter box. The benefit of these strips is that they create more professional appearance, prevent lifting of the edge tiles, and reduce the risk of people tripping on the unfinished snapping edges of the end tiles.
