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.
A one-piece reinforced concrete headwall available in three widths and five standard heights. Particularly suitable for steep embankments. Due to the relatively narrow footprint of the unit (back to front) it is advisable to fit suitable brackets to attach ground anchors. The largest unit can accommodate PCC pipes up to 1050mm I.D. and plastic pipes up to 1200mm I.D. Stainless steel sockets are provided for the attachment of gratings. Lifting points are cast in to each wingwall for safe handling using Althon lifting clutches. Galvanised mild steel angle can be fitted to the side walls in order to fit stoplogs and the back wall can be extended horizontally through the fitting of side wall extensions if required.
