Custom drums for concrete pours
By Andy Brown25 January 2021
Curb Roller Manufacturing is producing specially designed custom drums for challenging concrete pours. According to the company, the custom solutions pair with the Curb Roller’s Hydra-Screed 3000 to allow for faster production times on projects that would normally require multiple pours.
The custom rollers are designed for unique shape requirements or large pours on jobs like drainage systems or spillways. Curb Roller designs the drum to exact specifications, working with the project engineers to make sure the drum meets all project requirements. The drums are built to spec and are usually created in a month or less depending on shape and size.
Operators pair the custom drum with the Hydra-Screed 3000, Curb Roller’s two-operator hydraulically powered screed system that allows for continuous pours in applications like flatwork, flumes and more. The Hydra-Screed is said to achieve job completion in half the time of alternative hand-shaping methods and offers removable drive ends to quickly change different lengths of pipe or profile shapes.
“Having worked as a concrete contractor for a number of years, I have first-hand knowledge of the complexity that accompanies pouring a concrete spillway or flume. Some of these projects can seem completely impossible,” said Seth Ulmer, Curb Roller Manufacturing sales manager.
“Our custom drum designs enable contractors to complete a challenging pour without having to break it into multiple parts. It’s an ideal solution to accelerate productivity and minimise labour.”
Curb Roller’s custom drum solutions can be applied to applications as wide as 26 feet and as deep as 4 feet and can be created in a variety of shapes to meet job specifications. The custom solutions have been used on projects by concrete and DOT crews across the globe.
