Straight Curb & Gutter Forms

The dee straight curb and gutter forming system consists of a back form, a front form, a face form, a division plate, and a top spreader. The back and front forms are standard straight flatwork forms with the back form taller than the front form.

The dee straight curb and gutter forms are normally assembled into a curb and gutter forming system as shown in the illustration below.

Straight curb and gutter set up

There are 5 basic types of straight curbs:

  1. Vertical face - a setup with the front and the back of the curb being at 90° angles
  2. Battered face - a curbface with the back of the curb at a 90° angle and the front at less than a 90° angle
  3. Bottom radius - a battered curbface with a single radius formed into the bottom of the curb
  4. Top and bottom radius - a battered curbface with a radius formed into the top and bottom of the curb
  5. Drive over - a curbface with a slow, gradual batter allowing traffic to pass over

dee straight curb and gutter forms are used primarily to form traffic barriers and direct water to sewers, culverts or ditches. Water can be directed away from the curb (out flow), or towards the curb (in flow) depending on the curb and gutter configuration.

Typical Applications:

  • Streets
  • Roadways
  • Parking lots
  • Driveways
