A one-piece reinforced concrete headwall that be factory fitted with penstocks up to 900mm. Available with a standard backwall height of, 2.1m. Also included are lifting points cast in to each wingwall for safe handling using Althon lifting clutches. A spreader bar is also recommended for safe handling. The chains are threaded through this eliminating side load on the vertical lift. Stainless steel sockets are provided for the attachment of gratings and special brackets are available for use with the anchorage system.
We cast the opening in the back wall of our headwalls to suit the pipe diameter and material of the pipe being used. We can cast multiple pipe openings, elliptical, square or rectangular culvert openings into any of our headwalls. We can also cast pipe openings into the wing walls of our headwalls.
Althon Headwalls offer a cost effective alternative to in-situ structures for connecting pipework discharging into open water courses.
All drainage pipes discharging into open watercourses, such as swales, ditches, ponds and rivers, should be fitted with an appropriate Althon headwall.
