The safer and sustainable choice

Durakerb are part of the Econpro Group. Econpro are a specialist group of companies that transform waste and by-product into sustainable products and solutions.

Durakerb manufacture lightweight and recycled products and systems that provide for a safer, greener, faster and easier solution to kerbing and kerb-side drainage. They provide you with the opportunity to design and construct with responsibility to the environment and workforce.

Waste plastic doesn’t have to be a problem if we recycle and re-use responsibly. There are 182 bottles caps and closures in an average Durakerb standard unit and over 400,000 units sold to date. That is over 72 million fixed within kerb-lines across the UK, ready for re-use.

Safe Easy Cutting

When you design for Durakerb, all processes from setting out, cutting to length and cutting corners, are made easier, safer and quicker.

The increased efficiency will provide added value for a project when properly costed.

Reduced labour, plant and time on site will bring costs down however you should also exploit the time saved which means other tasks and follow on processes can be planned in so projects can be completed efficiently and ahead of schedule.

An Improving Cycle

The collection, grading and re-processing of waste plastic has a cost which, for a basic kerbstone, impacts on a product’s purchase price. It is generally much cheaper to manufacture using virgin material or simply take raw materials out of the ground however we can drive the cost down with greater use which itself provides greater potential for recovery.

  1. Creating solutions using recycled materials creates a demand
  2. Demand drives new industry and encourages better collection and control of waste material
  3. Improved collection and grading provides greater potential for use
  4. Increased use of recycled and recyclable products provides greater potential for recovery
  5. Greater potential for recovery reduces the cost of recycling and impact to the environment
  6. Reduced cost of recycling encourages increased use

BBA/HAPAS Certified

After twelve years of Durakerb performance in highway networks across the country, with BBA/HAPAS Certification, we feel that our initial goals set when we developed Durakerb have been realised.

“Offer a kerb edge feature that provides an easier, safer, simpler, quicker, better and more sustainable solution that delivers equivalent performance to the traditional.”

Since Durakerb’s introduction in 2005 There are now in excess of 400,000 units installed in highways, car parks, office and industrial projects across the UK and Ireland. This is equivalent to over 72 million recycled bottles, caps and closures.

Health & Safety

A major benefit of DuraKerb is its vastly superior health and safety features. DuraKerb is not only extremely light but also contains no carcinogenic silica. Both these features benefit the workforce tasked with installing the kerb and aid designers in meeting their legal obligations under the CDM regulations. Durakerb does this by:

  • Reducing weight per unit by 90%
  • Eliminating risk from airborne silica
  • Eliminating use of heavy cutting tools
  • Reducing working time on live networks by up to 75%
  • Reducing use and reliance on plant/machinery
  • Making the job easier and safer for everyone involved
Everyone has a role to play. All those involved in the construction process have a responsibility in managing health risks. Each must take ownership of their part in the process. The law places a duty on everyone involved in the installation of kerb: Clients, Designers, Principle Designers, Principle Contractors, Contractors & Workers.

Silica Free

An estimate from the cancer burden study of the number of deaths from lung cancer associated with exposure to RCS (respirable crystalline silica) shows there are around 600 deaths per year with 450 of these occurring from exposures in the construction sector.

Unlike concrete DuraKerb contains no carcinogenic silica & is designed to be cut using a hand saw eliminating the risk of exposure to RCS (respirable crystalline silica) a know cause of cancer.

Lightweight & Safe

Kerbs and paving material are common construction products. Regularly lifting, carrying or handling then can present significant risks of developing musculoskeletal problems.

At less than 6kg’s DuraKerb is designed to be manually installed in line with HSE guidelines unlike the concrete equivalent which should only be installed with the aid of lifting equipment.

Think about limiting the risks before work starts by avoiding the need for heavy products altogether….use the lightest product that fulfills the design criteria.
It is for duty-holders to ensure that their chosen design or design concept reduces risks as low as reasonably practicable. HSE should expect duty-holders to be able to provide evidence that demonstrates that a design reduces risks as low as reasonably practicable.
