Bespoke Precast Headwall with Baffle Blocks
Althon are able to offer bespoke precast outfalls for instances when a standard headwall will not suffice.
In this instance we designed and manufactured a sectional precast structure with 84 large baffle blocks cast onto a sectional extended spillway.
The baffle blocks reduced the speed with which the water discharging from the pipework entered the water below. This was essential due to the steep bank profile.
After installation a handrail and galvanised steel grating were retro fitted to the precast outfall. When designing and manufacturing bespoke precast outfalls we will take into account factors such as maximum weight the site can handle either due to available lifting equipment or restricted access to the point of installation.
