Since the first concrete pavement was completed in the late 1800’s, concrete has been used extensively for paving highways and airports, as well as business and residential streets.
There are 3 main types of concrete pavement: -
Extrudakerb offer two methods for the construction for concrete pavements — slipform and fixed form.
Slipform paving utilises a tracked paving machine which rides over the area to be paved. Fresh concrete is either discharged in front of the paver or in some cases a feeder machine will be utilised to maximise concrete volume. The paving machine then spreads, shapes, consolidates, screeds, and float finishes the concrete in one continuous operation.
In fixed-form paving, metal or timber forms are set and aligned to the required levels onto a solid foundation and staked rigidly. Concrete is discharged into the metal forms and spread using either mechanical or manual means and compacted to the top of the forms. The final compaction of the concrete is applied by a mechanical roller or screed compactor which rides along the top of the pre-set forms and the concrete. The float finish and texture are applied manually to the concrete prior to curing.
Over the years, Extrudakerb have successfully constructed thousands of kilometres of concrete pavements on both highways and airfields.
Extrudakerb operate two complete slipform paving trains featuring concrete placing machines, slipform paving machines and automated texture cure machines and tenting.
Extrudakerb have successfully constructed many concrete pavements in the UK and Ireland at civilian and military airfields.
Extrudakerb operate two complete slipform paving trains featuring concrete placing machines and slipform paving machines.
The company is experienced in both jointed reinforced and continuously reinforced concrete pavements; offering both machine and hand lay capabilities.
In 2016, Extrudakerb completed the 6.5km two-lane Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) Guided Busway between Leigh and Ellenbrook in Greater Manchester.
Working in partnership with Balfour Beatty on the Transport for Greater Manchester project, Extrudakerb ensured passengers will enjoy the most comfortable journey of any UK busway thanks to the state-of-the-art bespoke slipforming equipment and a precision grinding machine which delivers the smoothest finish to the continuous, monolithic structure.
Using a combination of 3D alignment machine control and a state-of-the-art precision grinding machine, Extrudakerb has achieved +/-3mm horizontal alignment, +0/-5mm vertical alignment and a +/- 1mm absolute gauge.
The success was thanks to the incredible output of the Extrudakerb team, paving 11,000m3 PQ concrete at a rate of 32m3 per hour and a grinding operation delivering the precise finish at 200m per shift.
Extrudakerb assumed the key supplier role, with a full management team and 80 staff. Extrudakerb provided a ‘one stop shop’ service by also managing groundworks, laying the pavement sub-base, constructing ground anchors, fixing 88t of reinforcement and constructing car traps plus entry/exit splays.
