Tuff Curb Lives Up to Its Name

Tuff Curb meets highway department needs for durable, high-profile delineators.  Strong yet flexible, the product is designed to meet both short and long-term needs.

One of the key advantages of Tuff Curb is its ease of installation.  The following is a summary of the steps involved in the process.  Please consult the official brochure for more information.

How to Install Tuff Curb

Begin by assembling the needed tools.  These include:

  • An impact wrench with ½ inch drive
  • ¾” (20 mm) drill bit with carbide tip; minimum length 10”(250 mm)
  • 15/16 (24 mm) six-point socket
  • A 1” bit rotary hammer with variable speed feature
  • Industrial grade extension cord, push broom, hammer, and power source

When you’ve collected these resources, consult engineering plans for the project.  These will serve as guidelines for placement of the Tuff Curb.  Then complete installation with the following five steps:

  1. Use a string line set 6” (152 mm) off the curb’s centerline to guide placement of the product.  Allow 1” (25.4 mm) spacing between sections unless local conditions warrant doing otherwise.
  2. Drill placement holes for the mounting sleeves.  Clean out the holes, install the sleeves, and attach the washer and lag.
  3. Tighten lag bolt once the anchor reaches the bottom of the hole.
  4. To install uprights into the sections of Tuff Curb, place the unit in the correct position and twist to secure.  The procedure for removal is the same steps in the opposite order.  Impact recovery recommends installing a delineator in each section of Tuff Curb.
  5. Remove string line, clean up surrounding area, and give the installation a final inspection.

As you can see, installing Tuff Curb is a straightforward process that requires only general-purpose tools and minimal training.  Put this versatile product to work for your department by contacting Impact Recovery today. We look forward to hearing from you.
