This is the overall height of the backwall of the headwall. Headwalls within a specific range often have a variety of backwall heights available.
Backwall height should be a consideration when considering cover to invert levels or the profile of the surrounding area or slope of the bank.
We are able to cast the invert level of the opening into the backwall of our precast headwalls to a specified level.
We cast the openings in our precast headwalls to suit the specified pipe diameter and material and if required to a specified invert level.
We are also able to accommodate multiple pipe openings in our headwalls. These openings can be arranged anywhere on the backwall of the headwall.
Where required we are also able to cast openings for pipework through the wingwalls (side walls) of our precast headwalls
Typically we cast the pipe openings in our standard precast headwalls at a 100 – 150mm invert level up from the spillway of the headwall.
Sewers for Adoption compliant precast headwalls should have the invert level of the pipe opening set 225mm above the spillway.
When requested we can set the invert level of the pipe opening wherever on the backwall of the headwall you require.
We cast the openings in our precast headwalls to suit the specified pipe diameter and material and are also able to accommodate multiple pipe openings in our headwalls
This refers to the largest single opening we are able to accommodate in any given headwall.
The diameter opening relates to the internal diameter of any given pipework.
We will cast the opening into our headwalls slightly larger than the outer diameter of the specified pipework to make installation on site as easy, fast and safe as possible.
Our Sewers for Adoption compliant outfall safety grilles are hinged with a padlock facility. On SFA compliant grating should be 270mm wider than the pipe OD
