4 Concrete Kerbs Tips
When to use concrete kerbs
Concrete kerbs are used when a rigid support or restrain is needed at the edge or perimeter of your paving. Concrete kerbs are essential for driveways and be used with other types of paving.
There are many uses for kerbing including preventing your driveway paving from ‘spreading’ or any other loss of structural integrity. It can also act as a barrier or demarcation for drivers and pedestrians to abide by.
Kerbs are also helpful in prevent vehicles from leaving a driveway or carriageway. Kerbing can also form a channel for rain water to drain.
Tips for laying concrete kerbs
Before laying down concrete kerbs, ensure that the ‘trenches’ where kerbs are laid are well-compacted and smooth without any debris.
Kerbs and edging products are laid on a concrete foundation which should be at least 50mm thick (usually around 100mm) and made of well-compacted semi-dry concrete.
When laying each individual kerb, make sure that the close joints are not larger than 10mm. They should also be filled with three parts sand and one part concrete.
Our concrete kerbs’ lightweight quality offer easy installation which means that even if you have basic home-remodelling skills, you can master the installation process.
The different types of kerbs
Low or mountable kerbs provide guidance for drivers to follow when on a road. A low or mountable kerb is 10cm above the pavement and has a slope to allow a vehicle to ‘climb’ easily.
‘Semi Barrier’ kerbs are used in areas with high pedestrian traffic and are 15cm above the pavement. This kerb prevents parking vehicles from intruding on more than one parking space.
Barrier kerbs discourage vehicles from leaving the pavement and are 20cm above the pavement edge. They are useful for areas with high foot traffic.
Rural areas use ‘Submerged’ kerbs to provide lateral restriction to a pavement for stability.
