More about Duraproducts.

For 20 years we have given the industry an efficient, low carbon,
low risk and environmentally friendly option to kerbing. We will
continue to innovate and deliver solutions to our communities to
help shape a healthier, safer and more sustainable world.
As we now strive to meet our commitment to a net zero future, we
invite all stakeholders in government, infrastructure and within the
wider construction sector to work with us so we can make a much
bigger impact in the next 20 years.
A recent independent study* by a leading British Construction &
Regeneration Group has found that using Durakerb will on average
reduce CO2e by 50% when compared with traditional kerbing.
