The Best Driveway Ramp (KERBY™) is the best way to stop your wheels going out of alignment!

The Best Driveway Ramp (KERBY™) was designed right here in Rolleston. We had ‘had enough’ of that “bump” every time he went in or out of our driveway which kept destroying our wheel alignment each month, therefor making our car steer badly and our tyres wear out faster. “Enough!” we said, let’s design the best Aluminium Fixed Ramp we can imagine, so we did.

 

The Best Driveway Ramp (KERBY™) is a simple and effective solution to the problem of the deep or shallow gutters in new subdivisions, the ramp bolts into the gutter and lets the water flow underneath.

The Best Access Ramp is the solution!

The Best Driveway Ramp (KERBY™) is a super-strong Aluminium Fixed Ramp that fixes into the gutter area with 10mm sleeve anchors (Dynabolts), or sometimes concrete screws, to enable a superior smoother, safer transition over the curb/gutter. So no more bumping, no more grinding the front off you and your friends cars, no more bouncing the trailer over the curb, and no more expensive wheel alignments! Get in off the road faster, more safely and quieter with confidence. The Best Driveway Ramp (KERBY™) is superior to tread-plate Aluminium folded ramps that can rust and bend. Kerby, The Best Driveway Ramps are in my opinion the best looking Aluminium Fixed Ramp option and come in 3.0, 2.0 & 1.0 meter DIY lengths. Other lengths to order.

NB: SMALLER OR CUSTOM-CUT LENGTHS CAN BE PURCHASED TO MAKE UP THE BALANCE OF THE WIDTH OF THE DRIVEWAY ENTRANCE BUT GENERALLY COME IN INCREMENTS OF 1M or 1.5M LENGTHS TO BEST SUIT CUTTING 3M or 4M FULL LENGTHS DOWN AS TO NOT HAVE WASTAGE.

We have spoken to the Selwyn Council regarding these ramps and at the time they appear to have no issues as long as it doesn’t prevent them performing maintenance on the gutter (as in covering a manhole or drain).

THE DIY PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE INSTALLATION AS THIS CAN BE DONE IN MANY WAYS AND IS A BIT OF A VARIABLE DEPENDING WHERE YOU LIVE*. PLEASE SEE SPECS & PRICING BELOW.

For viewing the product in situation there are samples in West Melton, Prebbleton and Rolleston.

The Kerby is fantastic thanks, sorted out the problem and is rock solid. My neighbour is a builder and saw it. He has a client who has the same problem so hopefully you get another order.

Install was straight forward but the cordless drill could not get past the large pebble aggregate in the concrete. I got my hand on a 240V with hammer function and even that struggled. I eventually got through by using a center punch to crack the pebble it was stuck on.

Mainfreight had excellent customer service for the delivery too.Warrick, Pierce Road, Auckland - October 2021

Hi Clint,
Thanks for putting Kerby across our driveway. It has made a heck of a difference to the way our cars move up and down over the kerb. So much smoother. Thanks, should have had something like this years ago. Thanks, Doug and Denise.62 Strauss Drive, Rolleston - September 2021

VIEWING KERBY™ SAMPLES / INSTALLATIONS
24 Sheridan Drive, Rolleston is where you can view a 9m installation (in this situation it’s a test being close to the curb, normally we install +30mm away from the curb), or buy and collect the KERBY™ from (by appointment). 48-50 Strauss Ave for straight length installs and Beaumont Drive or Blue Jean Ave or 12 Mahy Place for samples of acute or convex curve installs.

 

KERBY™ INFORMATION ON PRODUCTS & INSTALLATION
A “CLEAN” length or section has NO HOLES.
However, we can professionally “PRE-DRILL” them or “INSTALL” them if required.
We just need to know how many holes you prefer and what the Dynabolts/sleeve anchors/concrete screws are going into, your address and the total width of the driveway/access point, plus a configuration of KERBY™ length(s) required etc, see below.

 

Yes, KERBY™ can be POWDER-COATED! 
Please ask for this additional service as it has to go away to the powder-coater for a few days and be in their queue to be done, but it’s worth it! To view a sample of the fancy new TEFLON-TEXTURED BLACK version for a garage entrance, look from the path of 1 Falcon’s Landing. It’s soooooooo awesome! Adds the WOW-FACTOR to your house! Find all the colours you can imagine to match your house here: https://duluxpowders.co.nz/colour/

NB: We have to cut up straight lengths into sections to get around acute, convex or concave CURVES (which is additional material, cutting and fixing costs etc). So if you have a slight or an acute curve for an entrance/access point, calculate on 2x 2m + 2x 1m sections for example, and KERBY™ will be installed to the best fit or “look” to the curve like 1m lengths on the edges and 2x 2m in the centre to create the best visual appeal, totally at your request.

DISCLAIMER
We will endeavour to provide the best quality products and service at all times and follow up when we can in between installing products elsewhere. Please note that concrete is not an exact science and I have to do my best to work with what’s there in your driveway area (curves, fluctuations, out of level, bumps and deformations etc), and can only do my best at the time of installation with what is there currently in front of me. There may be a slight gap between the KERBY™ lengths or a different measurement of the offset away from the curb to the KERBY™ extrusion each end and in the middle due to the nature of the concrete at your place.

NB: Please make sure you read these notes thoroughly and measure up your gap wisely and correctly to what you envisage the width of the access point is that you require and relay the correct measurements to us via email or text only – We cut and install KERBY™ lengths to YOUR measurements after you engage with us or call/request KERBY™ products. In the occurrence that your measurement is too small (or short), we can add increments of 1m lengths to each side of the existing installation at a later date as per the pricing above. Please also note that a drain or a sump cannot be covered by KERBY™. A significant fee will be charged for lifting, un-intsalling or moving KERBY™. Please note that when you engage our services for products you agree to our T&C’s which are available here to view on this website.
