Abstract

A kerb has cut-outs at each end to allow it to be lifted manually or mechanically and placed in position with the hands or lifting tool being easily removable. The kerbs may be stacked and lifted via the cut-outs by a fork lift truck from a store onto a lorry. And then, by a handling device on a lorry, onto the ground at a site.

Description

Kerb Design This Invention relates to a purposely designed kerb or the like, concerned with a system for handling, lifting moving and laying from plant to project.
There are a few known devices for kerbstones and the like. Traditionally kerbs are gripped from end to end or side to side whereby two arms with pads are suspended to approximately 45 degrees from a swivel bar, these are placed over the Kerb ends or sides while the motion of lifting the bar generates downward pressure per the weight of the kerb against the pads initiating grip to the kerb edge while lifting.
This is quite dangerous in that the kerb could slip from the pads and coincidentally you cannot butt kerb to kerb with the end gripper because of the thickness of the pad. Also, it is assumed that any other device with a support going under the kerb would inhibit the laying inasmuch that the kerb bottom would rest upon the lifting device against the bed joint. Before moulded kerbs there were dressed stone kerbs, the bottom part of the kerb was left irregular or undressed due to the fact that this portion was buried into the road and path subsurface, this shape did not effect the bedding or positioning of the kerb because the bed was made up to support the whole length of the kerb. Therefor an irregular bottom edge will not effect the bedding.
The present invention is concerned with a purposely formed object or block whereby the object is cradled under on or through at least a niche of which allows the object to be placed adjacent to the next manually, mechanically, singularly or in batches.
The invention will now be further illustrated by way of example only with reference to the accompanying drawing wherein: Fig A. is a view of a kerb with a niche according to the present invention.
Fig B. is a view of a hand held lifting device in accordance with the present invention Fig C. is a end view of a lifting device ditto.
Fig D. is a end view of a lifting device in place under the niche of a side view of a kerb ditto.
Fig E. is a end view of a lifting frame over a channel kerb ditto.
Fig F. shows a tool folded into a neat unit.
Fig G. shows a tool in its fixed position for kerb handling in accordance with the present invention.
Fig H. is an end view of the tool in place over a kerb.
Fig I. shows the tool placed to the kerb in oblique view.
Fig J. shows a forklift stacking at the plant.
Fig K. shows a lony off loading on site.
Fig L. shows kerb laying in progress Referring to Fig A. The kerb 1. is formed with a niche 2. that allows man handling or machine handling.
Referring to Fig B. A lifting frame is comprised of a handle bar 3. leg 4. that swivels through bar 3. at 5.
Referring to Fig C. A lifting frame in end view shows the arm 6. through bar 3.
retained by stops 5. centrally in line with foot 7. at the end of leg 4.
Referring to Fig D. Shows the lifting frame in place over kerb end 1. whereby foot 7. is located under and into niche 2. whereby lifting at bar 3. would support the kerb centrally through its weight distribution.
Referring to Fig E. A differently shaped lifting tool is in place over a channel kerb ditto.
Referring to Fig F. 9. is a cross brace that secures the handle to the leg.
Referring to Fig G. the legs are dropped whereby the brace is secured at 10. and 11.
Referring to Fig H. shows the tool in end view with brace 9. fixed ditto Fig G.
Referring to Fig I. show the kerb in place ditto.
Referring to Fig J. forklift 12. is placing in stacks 13.
Referring to Fig K. lorry 14. is carrying stacks 13. whereby lorry grab 15. is off loading by grab end 16.
Referring to Fig L. kerbs are laid on bed 17. to line 18. strung to pin 20. whereby niche 2. allows a tool for lifting and laying and also keys the bed to the kerb. The niche 2 also allows kerbs to be lifted out of set runs during maintenance.

Claims (16)

CLAIMS:
1. A block with a purposely formed shape that allows it to be handled manually.
2. A block with a formed shape that allows it to be handled mechanically from that feature.
3. A block with a formed shape that allows it to be lifted singularly.
4. A block with a formed shape that allows it to be lifted in batches.
5. A block with a formed shape that keys the bed joint to stop kerb movement.
6. A block with a formed shape that allows layer stacking.
7. A block with a formed shape that allows layer moving.
8. A block with a formed shape that allows its full support from that feature.
9. A block with a formed shape that allows butt jointing.
10. A block with a formed shape that eliminates fouling between butt jointing at the bed.
11. A block with a formed shape that allows the kerb to be lifted out of set and laid runs from that feature for maintenance.
12. A block with a formed shape that allows easy existing mould modification.
13. A block with a formed shape that aids manoeuvring of bedding the kerb from a tool used with that feature.
14. A block with a formed shape that allows lorry stacking from that feature.
15. A block with a formed shape that allows lorry off loading from that feature.
16. A block with a formed shape that allows a tool to be used that does not foul the line when laying.
