Choosing a Rubber Kerb Ramp | Recycled Vs Non-Recycled

Heeve Driveway Rubber Kerb Ramp for Rolled-Edge Kerb

Author: Ramp Champ | Published: | Updated:

You take damn good care of your car. The regular servicing, polishing and waxing… But what about protecting the bumper, suspension and underside? 

Rubber kerb ramps offer a smooth transition over rolled edge kerbs to your driveway, so you can keep your car in good shape. Whether you’ve got shiny new wheels that you want to prevent from bottoming out, or you need smooth access for construction vehicles, a motorhome or trailer - you can’t go wrong with a sturdy rubber kerb ramp. 

That’s right - no more painfully slow speeds or hitting the driveway on an angle. A rubber kerb ramp provides safe and damage-free access… Day in and day out.  

And here at Ramp Champ, a question we get asked a lot is “what’s better - a recycled rubber ramp or a solid rubber ramp?” And truth be told - both are great options. The answer depends on your unique situation and preferences. Let’s zoom in… 

Recycled Rubber Ramp - What To Consider


The Ramp Champ 100% Recycled Rubber Kerb Ramp is made for transitioning over rolled edges. It’s got some snazzy features, too: 

  • It’s fit with a small, inbuilt water channel
  • The inbuilt water channel is 90mm wide, allowing for rainwater to flow beneath the ramp. To avoid clogging, it’s best to regularly check and clear the channel. If you live in an area with heavy rainfall, you may prefer our solid rubber ramp, as it comes with a larger channel for water flow (30mm high x 50mm wide).

  • It comes in multiple colours
  • Choose between charcoal, mocha, sand, terracotta or grey to suit your home, style and local surroundings. 

  • It’s lightweight and smaller in length
  • Weighing only 10kg per 1m section, our recycled rubber kerb ramp is easy to handle and install. However, a question we often get asked is “does this make it easier for thieves to take?”  Which brings us to our next point… 

  • It can be fixed to the ground
  • Our recycled rubber ramp doesn’t have bolt holes like our solid rubber ramp. Although, with a sealant like Sikaflex, you can secure it to the ground to avoid any movement or theft. Before doing so, we recommend you contact your local council to confirm local regulations.  

  • Australian made from recycled truck tyres
  • If you’re looking for an Australian made, eco-friendly option - look no further. We give old truck tyres a second life.  

  • Compatible with houses on a cul-de-sac street
  • Are you concerned about your curved driveway or house being on a cul-de-sac (dead end street)? Well, we’ve got some good news. Because our recycled rubber kerb ramps are smaller in length, they can easily be placed separately to accommodate curved driveways.  

    Solid Rubber Ramp - What To Consider 


    The Ramp Champ Solid Rubber Kerb Ramp is another popular option for rolled edges. Here’s why our customers love it: 

  • It’s a longer and heavier option than our recycled ramp
  • At 1.2m in length, our solid rubber kerb ramp covers more ground, while still being easy to handle. It weighs 21kg, so it’s recommended you get a few sets of hands to install it. And because it’s a heavier ramp, it makes it difficult to steal. 

  • It has a large, inbuilt water channel
  • If you live in an area where rain is common - our solid kerb ramp is for you. The channel is 30mm wide by 50mm high. What’s more, it’s easy to lift up and check the channel regularly to avoid a buildup of debris.

  • It can be bolted to the ground 
  • Our solid rubber kerb ramp comes with 4 permanent fixing holes - so there’s no need to buy sealant to fix it to the ground. This will avoid movement and theft. But remember, it’s best to contact your local council before installing.  

  • Multiple ramps can be bolted together
  • Our solid rubber kerb ramp doesn’t just bolt to the ground - you can also join multiple ramps together via the side bolt holes. This increases the weight, making them virtually impossible to steal. If you choose to bolt your ramps together, you can still roll them over to clean out the water channel of debris.  

  • It has reflective strips to illuminate your driveway at night
  • With 4 reflective strips, there will be no surprises for nighttime guests to your home. This makes it both safe and easy to use.

  • It’s made from high quality rubber
  • Our solid rubber kerb ramp is made overseas from high-quality premium rubber  - making it an incredibly sturdy choice. However, we understand that some of our customers value recycled products that are Australian made - in which case, we would recommend our recycled rubber kerb ramps.  

  • It’s an affordable alternative to our recycled ramps
  • Given the nature of production, our solid rubber kerb ramps are slightly more affordable. They’re longer in length, making them cheaper per lineal metre. 


    Choose Your Rubber Kerb Ramp From Ramp Champ

    As you can see, both our Recycled Rubber Kerb Ramps and Solid Rubber Kerb Ramps will help to protect your car from bottoming out and unnecessary scratching. This will help keep your wheels (and heads) turning. We understand you might still have a few questions, so here are some we get asked the most: 

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does my council allow kerb ramps? 

    Many councils allow kerb ramps, however, for detailed regulations on whether a kerb ramp is allowed in your area, we recommend contacting your local council before purchasing and installing.

    What do I need to fix it to the ground?

    If allowed by your council, these ramps can be bolted to the ground. Each section has 4 pre-drilled holes for permanent installation using Heeve Sleeve Anchor Bolts which are included in the package and can also be purchased separately.

    How many ramps do I need?

    This depends on your driveway. Simply measure how wide your driveway is and divide by the length of the ramp (1m for recycled or 1.2m solid).

    Can these ramps be used for straight edge kerbs?

    No, our products are specially made for rolled edge kerbs. 

    Can they be dangerous?

    Our rubber kerb ramps work to improve the safety of your driveway. They both have a high traction grip surface, which helps to avoid slips and trips when wet.

    Any more questions? We’d love to hear from you. Contact our friendly team and we’ll help you find a rubber kerb ramp that’ll keep your dream car in immaculate condition.
