Bespoke Precast Concrete
Sometimes the culvert will be above the water level, in the case of open water channels. They can also provide a bridge to help accommodate pedestrians and vehicular traffic. Culverts can be used for service tunnels, attenuation tanks and basement solutions in residential builds.Contact
The strength and durability of concrete culverts out- compete other material choices such as steel and
are more versatile in its uses. They can withstand harsh weather conditions with no corrosion or rust issues and are less weather dependent when it comes to installation. As these are normally buried into the ground, it is essential that the top and side layers are able to manage the stresses applied and consideration must be made for vehicles and earth pressures. Our team of designers are able to work through your specifications with you to make sure the final products can meet your requirements.
We create bespoke concrete culverts rather than offer an off-the-shelf solution. This means that you don’t have to compromise your project around an existing shape or size. Instead, we will create a specific mould for your particular job.
We offer concrete box culverts which are typically enclosed on four sides along with three-sided culverts as well, but we can accommodate a range of different options within the design such as casting a vee shaped floor to improve flow rates and to help with self cleansing. Cast in lifting pins can also be included in the manufacturing process, leading to an easier and safer install process on site. Mammal ledges can be incorporated to make the culvert mammal friendly by adding a shelf within the units to allow animals to pass through safely.
Units can be made up to 9 tonnes in weight and these can then be joined together to make longer culverts.
We are able to manufacture interlocking sections to create a solution to fit your project.
We can add a bitumen coating to improve the durability of the final product. We can also pre-fix a waterbar sealant if needed which helps create water- tight joints of the box culvert.
Whatever culvert you are looking for, choosing a precast concrete option will result in fewer delays to your contract as they are manufactured off-site and delivered to the exact specification required. The culverts are typically installed with a crane and then backfilled, before moving onto the next piece. The use of precast concrete culverts means the installation process is faster and less weather dependent.
