Description

A revolutionary, lightweight and environmentally friendly kerbstone that complies with health and safety guidelines on the manual handling of kerbstones. They are manufactured by injection moulding a blend of recycled polyolefins, comprising recycled low-density and high-density polyethylene, polypropylene and functional additives. They have a cellular internal structure and 100% of the kerbs can be recycled.

Features and advantages:

  • 20% reduction in carbon emissions compared with precast concrete units in manufacture.
  • At just under 6 kg, Charcon Durakerb® is less than one third of the manual handling limit of 20 kg.
  • Can be cut with hand tools and does not create any crystalline silica dust.
  • Extremely durable offering a substantial reduction in spalling, minimizing remedial and maintenance costs.
  • Extremely easy to store and transport.
  • Lightweight design reduces laying times by up to four times that of a concrete equivalent.
  • Manufactured using a polymer blend of which 88% is recycled material.
  • Removes the need for mechanical handling equipment, speeding up lay rates.
  • Resistance to typical chemicals and road salts used in highway construction and maintenance.
  • Simple interlocking feature ensures 100% alignment.
