Designed to reduce the need for expensive underground pipework, the system has been developed for hard landscaping surfaces by Charcon, Aggregate Industries’ commercial product range.
Charcon’s aim was to develop a system which ensures prompt removal of surface water during and immediately after rainfall.
The design has also been improved to reduce installation time and costs. If it is installed correctly, ongoing maintenance needs should be minimal.
Safeticurb features a cross-fall to direct surface water towards the drainage entrances for roadways and other hard landscaped areas; it is suitable for installation in car parks, airport taxiways, heavy duty industrial sites and pedestrianised areas.
Available in slot and grid options, the system is compatible with block paving and the British Standard kerb. It has been tested in accordance with European Standard BS EN 1433, offering loading standard conformance up to Class F.
