Marshalls uses hydraulic pressing in the manufacture of its standard natural kerb, channels and edgings. The result is the durability and consistent long-term performance you would expect from Marshalls with a functional unit of this type.
These precision-manufactured products are available in many different shapes and profiles to fulfil a wide range of design requirements.
Bullnose and Square channels are typically used as a spacer between the kerb and the carriageway or for off road parking and lay-bys, while Dished channels provide an aid to drainage. Bullnose, Round Top and Flat Top edging is mostly used along footpath edges.

|Cleaning & Maintenance
||Information regarding the cleaning & maintenance of this product may be obtained on request
||Any product containing cement during its early life may exhibit a temporary white discolouration known as efflorescence. This is not a product fault and will gradually disappear with exposure to natural weathering and trafficking
||It should be appreciated that with all products weathering and site conditions can cause shade variation to appear across the surface of individual units. This does not in any way affect the performance of the units and any such variation will diminish over a period of time as the product matures.
||The evolution of new product design is continuous and information is subject to change without notice. Customers should check with the supplier to ensure that they have the latest details. Marshalls reserve the right to amend the technical information as deemed necessary and in accordance with the relevant national and international standards without
