The Kassel Kerb®: The extra special raised kerb

Bus and tram stops have far-reaching influence on the attractiveness of public transport. One important attribute is accessibility. Unhampered access to buses and trams makes their use more attractive, more comfortable and safer. Not only for the mobility-impaired, but also other people whose mobility is restricted, such as the elderly, parents with prams and small children, benefit from stops equipped with the Kassel Kerb® from Profilbeton. “Barrier-free accessibility benefits everybody, not just the mobility-impaired […] After all, we have to realize that we will all age and that more and more elderly people will also be using public transport,” says Prof. Dr. Hartmut Topp, director of the Transportation Department at the University of Kaiserslautern.

That’s why we dedicate ourselves and all of our resources to this topic. Our experience in Germany and in our European neighbours has made us the authority in this field. Our advice is sought after even at the planning stage. We provide the expert assistance you need to plan and realize your projects.

The Kassel Kerb® forms an important element of the stop/vehicle interface at the planning stage of barrier-free bus and tram stops.
Its strikingly bright colour fulfils the requirement for a conspicuously marked kerbstone. The optimally reduced distance between vehicle and stop makes boarding comfortable and safe for everybody.

The use of public transport will become more attractive and safer for all passengers, in particular for the mobility-impaired and for children.
