DURAKERB

Durakerb is an innovative and cost effective solution which provides significant sustainable, and health & safety benefits. The manufacture of Durakerb utilises thousands of tons of plastic waste which may otherwise be harmful to the environment. This innovative technology thereby promotes the maintenance and growth of a circular economy where these ‘waste’ polymer materials are treated as a resource.

Durakerb’s commitment to environmental stewardship is evident through leading standard approvals, including EPD and BBA, which validate the eco-friendliness and quality of the solutions. Durakerb not only provides environmental benefits but also offers practical advantages. Utilisation of Durakerb helps reduce on-site risks by mitigating manual handling risks and effectively eradicating silicate dust pollution (produced when cutting concrete kerbs) thereby significantly improving safety for workers.

KEY BENEFITS
Some of the key benefits that are leveraged by selected Durakerb rather than concrete kerb are:

Health & Safety

  • A typical Durakerb unit weighs 5.7kg as opposed to 67kg for a concrete kerb, vastly reducing the risk of back injury and other musculoskeletal issues.
  • Unlike concrete kerbs no harmful silica dust is emitted when cutting Durakerb units
  • Faster installation ensures less time for the workforce in live highways.

Sustainability

  • Durakerb includes approximately 88% recycled polymer
  • Durakerb is fully recyclable at end of life
  • Durakerb has 50% less embodied carbon than concrete kerbs

Installation

  • Durakerb can be laid three times faster than concrete kerbs
  • Durakerb can be laid by one person
  • Durakerb requires no JCB / digger or heavy lifting equipment for placement
  • Durakerb is quickly and easily hand-cut and adapted to awkward geometry

Robustness

  • Durakerb is highly durable and damage resistant
  • Durakerb’s ductile nature greatly reduces the risk of cracking or chipping
  • Housing developers claim <5% post-construction/pre-adoption replacement for Durakerb vs >75% for concrete kerbs
