Differences Between CurbMaster™ and DriveSmooth™ Models
The primary differences between the CurbMaster Pro and DriveSmooth models can be categorized into three main aspects: surface texture, mounting holes, and end piece design.
- Surface Texture: The choice of surface texture is a matter of personal preference. The CurbMaster Pro and DriveSmooth models offer different surface textures, allowing users to select the option that suits their preferences.
- Mounting Holes: The CurbMaster Series ramps come equipped with pre-drilled mounting holes, offering a convenient installation option. On the other hand, DriveSmooth ramps do not have pre-drilled holes but can be drilled if desired. The presence or absence of mounting holes is also a matter of preference and installation requirements.
- Sloped Ends: It’s worth noting that the CurbMaster Series ramps do not have sloped ends, while the DriveSmooth ramps feature tapered ends. If the ability to enter and exit the ramp at an angle is crucial, the DriveSmooth model may be the preferred choice.
Considering these differences, individuals can make an informed decision based on their surface texture preference, mounting hole requirements, and the need for sloped ends during entry and exit.

These pieces offer the flexibility to connect together, forming a ramp of any desired length for rolled curbs, without the need for permanent installation. Made from top-quality rubber, these ramps are crafted to ensure durability and longevity, despite the drawback of not having mounting holes. Each ramp weighs 45 lbs, and when securely bolted together, they generally stay in place effectively.

These end pieces are designed with tapered ends, allowing for a smoother entry from either side of the ramp.
