DURA Products, which manufactures sustainable road kerbs and drainage solutions using recycled polymers, has recorded its most successful year yet.

The firm revealed it has sold over 100,000 units of Durakerb and Duradrain during the past year – an increase of almost 70% on 2021 figures. This follows on from a period of growth in 2020, during which the business grew by over 60%.

With sustainability becoming increasingly important in the construction industry. Dura said demand for its solutions has been ‘significant’.

In the UK, the business has supplied projects including the McDonald’s drive-thru in Market Drayton, Shropshire, the UK’s first net zero restaurant. More than 500 metres of the eco-friendly Durakerb was supplied around the drive-thru and customer parking areas.

Duradrain, the kerbside drainage product, was recently installed at the UK’s largest drive-thru of Canadian donut chain Tim Hortons, in Trafford Park, Greater Manchester. 2,680 metres of Duradrain has also been installed by Colas for its latest highways project on the A46 at Stoneleigh.

Dura Products MD Steve Bennett said, “We are delighted with the way the company has performed this year. There has been a noticeable shift towards green construction over the past few years and this has been reflected in sales of our sustainable solutions. We are very much looking forward to seeing what 2023 brings.”
