BS EN 1340:2003

Concrete kerb units. Requirements and test methods

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : April 2003



This European Standard specifies materials, properties, requirements and test methods for unreinforced, cement bound precast concrete kerb units, channels and complementary fittings, that are for use in trafficked paved areas and roof coverings.

The units are used to fulfil one or more of the following: separation, physical or visual delineation, the provision of drainage or the containment of paved areas or other surfacing.

This standard provides for the product marking and the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.

This standard does not include all requirements for cross-sections, shapes and dimensions but just the tolerances.

This standard does not deal with the tactility or visibility of kerbs.

Attention is drawn to this standard’s National Annex, which gives advice on the use of the different performance classes in the UK. It also provides information on the sizes and shapes of kerbs that have traditionally been used in the UK.
