Goodman also thought about the changing seasons when he designed the edging spikes. Thinking of natural weather conditions, such as freezing and thawing, he thought about how to do two main things: reduce separation and also reduce the need for future repairs. Overall, EdgeTite spikes are stronger and more secure.
Edgetite paver spikes are unique because of their angled tip, which deflects away from the installation as it is hammered into the base. As the head of the spike is tilted, this tightens the edge against the brick, keeping it sturdy and attached. When Goodman tried this out from the first test spike, he was amazed at the result. The angled installation strengthens the entire system.
