Project Description

A DuraKerb Partnership With Suffolk County Council

Project:

3 schemes across Suffolk, the successful projects are located in Clare, Warlingworth and Sapiston.

Background:      

Suffolk County Council were looking for a method of reducing their health and safety liability whilst boosting their environmental credentials.

 

Challenge:

Although mechanical handling of concrete kerbs has reduced the risk of long term injury the weight of individual units is still an issue both for unloading from lorries as well as installing on site. Concrete units weigh around 70kg.

On completion of two schemes and a third well underway; 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.
