Finish Options

The standard finish for bridge curbing is sawn top, split face. However, in addition to these standard finishes, any of the following may be custom ordered:

  • Sawn top (standard): the top of the curb has a smooth finish created by saw cutting.
  • Split face: the face of the curb has a rough finish created by being split.
  • Thermal top: the top of the curb has a finish created by being split, then braised with a blow torch to roughen the surface to give it a safer, sandpaper-like surface.
  • Sawn face: the face of the curb has a smooth finish created by saw cutting. Not available on radius curves. Note that sawn faces can also be thermaled with a blow torch to create a smoother face front and/or back.
  • Thermal face: the face of the curb has a finish created by being split or wawn, then braised with a blow torch.
  • Clean back: protrusions greater than 1/4-inch are removed using hand tools to create a smoother surface and stay within tolerance. This is the standard back finish for bridge curbing.
  • Sawn back: provides the ultimate clean back; available on vertical straight curb only.

Edge Detail Options

There are five basic edge details that may be specified to the exposed edges of a bridge curb:

  • Straight edge (standard).
  • Buzzed: 1/4-inch camfer (or eased) edge.
  • Rounded edge: one or both edges are chamfered and then rounded off to 1/2-inch or greater radius.
  • Chamfer: 45-degree bevel is standard, 1/2", 3/4: or 1".
  • Beveled mountable: 45-dgree chamfer is standard, up to 3" x 3" or 4" x 4", or 5" x 5".

Joint Options:

There are three basic joint options available for bridge curbing:

  • Full: a straight cut with 90-degree angles at top and bottom. Unless otherwise specified, this joint is considered standard.
  • Angled: has a cut greater than 90 degrees to allow the curb to slope downward when butted to an adjacent curb.
  • Mitered: an angled cut, top to bottom, allowing the end of one curb piece to butt into the face of another curb.
