What is a kerb?
- A kerb is the raised edge of a road or pavement, or where a road meets another road.
Why use a kerb?
Kerbs have a variety of functions. It can be used to deter members of the public from parking or driving on the pavements or your lawns. They also provide a structural support to the pavement. Kerbs can also function as a channel runoff for water from rain or snow, where they have a gutter or drain placed adjacent, and then the road and lavement angled to ensure the water runs off to the drain. There is also the aesthetic aspect of kerbs that complete the look of a road or pavement making them look finished.
- Kerbs can also help increase safety. For example in low-speed areas they channel traffic and redirect the capacity for impacts. Whilst in higher speed areas the main usage is to provide drainage and also help minimise erosion risk. Kerbs tend to not be used in rural areas or high speed roads due to them causing rollover crashes.
What are the different types of kerbs?
There are various types of kerb, categorised by shape, material, height and whether the kerb itself is combined with a drain. Kerbs come in vertical-faced version or square versions, also you can get slope-faced kerbs. So what type fits your needs needs to be considered when thinking about what kerbs to install.
