Dry Cast Kerbs versus Wet Cast Kerbs


Wet cast kerb was installed next to a dry cast kerb. Two years later the dry cast kerbs are darker, the surface doesn’t abrade as easily and withstands acid attack better in the long term. Wet cast kerbs are manufactured in the same way as cobbles. Dry cast kerbs are manufactured in the same way as interlocking pavers.

Bosun kerbs are designed consistently with high quality in mind, ensuring a durable and resilient form. Our kerbs, being manufactured out of concrete, are fire resistant; and due to their solid form, are robust in nature. Below is an image of a cut Bosun Kerb.

Below: Bosun dry cast kerbs were used on the left hand side of this traffic island. Wet cast kerbs were used on the right hand side. It is clear to see that the dry cast kerbs are dimensionally more accurate than the wet cast kerbs.
