Brief

Suffolk County Council were looking for a lightweight and sustainable kerbstone for three schemes within the county. Our Durakerb provided the perfect solution as they are installed with a concrete bed and backing in a quick and safe manner. Installing Durakerb units can be done by one person, with one unloading from the lorry and one preparing the concrete bed or backing once the units have been installed.

Our Durakerb is made from a combination of recycled plastic bottles and plastic sheeting. It is estimated that each 100 m of kerbing laid uses about 0.5 tonnes of plastic that would otherwise be disposed of as landfill.  

Solution

On completion of two schemes in Clare and Worlingworth and a third well underway in Sapiston Durakerb seems too good to be true, it begs the question “why haven’t we been using it for years?” It looks the same as traditional concrete, has environmental and safety benefits and being HAPAS approved it comes with a good pedigree. SHC site staff love it and have asked if we can use it everywhere.
