Precast concrete headwalls are an efficient, cost-effective method of controlling the inflow and outflow of water in culvert crossings and at stormwater line entrances to creeks or settlement ponds.
Designed by Ministry of Highways supplemental design, standard headwalls are utilized by most municipalities and in private construction of subdivisions and commercial properties in B.C.
The precast headwall allows contractors to quickly complete pipe runs without extending time spent in environmentally sensitive areas, and preventing the requirement of using the costly cast in place option.
Available to suit most pipe types and sizes as well as some of the smaller box culvert sizes, headwalls can be configured with dissipaters, handrails, grillages and other custom items such as bolt-on sluice gates.
Precast with high strength self-compacting concrete, AE Concrete headwalls are supplied with a cast-in lift inserts for safe lifting and quick installation.
AE Concrete has a full line-up of large diameter precast concrete pipe headwalls to the marketplace this construction season. We realized there was a market for headwalls that would satisfy stringent municipal and provincial requirements, as cast-in-place concrete is less desirable; construction deadlines are always of crucial importance.
