Product: Straight Curb & Gutter Forms


The Dee straight curb and gutter forming system consists of a back form, a front form, a face form, a division plate, and a top spreader. The back and front forms are standard straight flatwork forms with the back form taller than the front form.


The Dee straight curb and gutter forms are normally assembled into a curb and gutter forming system as shown in the illustration below.


Concrete Form

There are 5 basic types of straight curbs:

  1. Vertical face - a setup with the front and the back of the curb being at 90° angles
  2. Battered face - a curbface with the back of the curb at a 90° angle and the front at less than a 90° angle
  3. Bottom radius - a battered curbface with a single radius formed into the bottom of the curb
  4. Top and bottom radius - a battered curbface with a radius formed into the top and bottom of the curb
  5. Drive over - a curbface with a slow, gradual batter allowing traffic to pass over

Dee straight curb and gutter forms are used primarily to form traffic barriers and direct water to sewers, culverts or ditches. Water can be directed away from the curb (out flow), or towards the curb (in flow) depending on the curb and gutter configuration.


Typical Applications:

  • Streets
  • Roadways
  • Parking lots
  • Driveways

Additional options for curb & gutter flatwork forms

Sliding Nose
A sliding nose (dee product #911) is a piece that retracts to allow adjacent forms to be removed from the pour without removing forms from either side of the form. Using this type of nose is the only way forms can be easily removed from a pour when using dowels or rebar.

Dowel Holes
Dowels, or rebar material, travel through the face of the flatwork form. After the forms are removed and adjacent concrete is placed, the two placements are interlocked by the rebar or solid dowels.

Dowel holes are punched slightly larger than the diameter of the solid dowels or rebar to be used allowing the flatwork forms to be easily slipped off the dowels after the concrete placement is complete.

Forms punched for dowels or rebar may require a sliding nose to allow the form to be removed after placement without damaging the reinforcement material.

Dowel Hole Specifications (can be punched on):

  • 6” to 30” O.C. as specified
  • 10-gauge or 12-gauge forms
  • 3/16” and 1/4” forms
