Kassle Kerb System

A major step forward in
public transport access
and convenience.


The unique Kassel Kerb provides the ultimate solution for kerbing at low-floor vehicle stops. Kassel Kerb forms a seamless, gap-free join between low-floor vehicles and stops, providing faster and easier passenger access and more efficient and accessible transport services.

                   Providing optimum vertical/horizontal
                   gap differential, the Kassel Kerb also
                   improves passenger safety, especially
                   for the disabled and visually impaired.
                   Its unique design profile reduces
                   expensive wear and tear on vehicle
                   tyres, substantially cutting overheads
                   for bus and coach operators.
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995
(DDA) requires measures to be taken
to improve access for the visually
impaired and disabled.

 

Europe's number one bus stop kerb

Used in over 1200 cities and towns across the Continent, the Kassel
Kerb is Europe's number one bus stop kerb system:

 

  •  No-gap access for easier, safer
    and more accessible transport
    for all
  •  Guides vehicle into optimal
    stopping position to maximise
    safety and service speed
  • Reduces tyre wear and damage
    to cut maintenance costs
  •  Proven long-term performance
  • Ideal for shared bus and low
    floor tram stops

 

 

Designed For Peformance, Safety and Strength

            The key to providing a universally 
            attractive
public transport system
            is the speed and efficiency with
            which it operates.

 

 

 

The Kassel Kerb's durability and
low-maintenance design aids more
efficient and user-friendly public transport

Manufactured from high strength
concrete, using the finest aggregates,
the Kassel Kerb is extremely
hardwearing.

The smooth, concave contact face of
the Kassel Kerb replicates the profile
of vehicle tyres, self-steering the
vehicle into the optimal stopping
position whilst preventing its wheels
from climbing or damaging the kerb.

The boot shaped profile of the units
ensures that vehicle weight on the toe
always offsets tyre pressure on the
contact face to eliminate kerb
movement.
