PRECAST CONCRETE BOX CULVERTS
INTRODUCTION Precast box culverts are the ideal solution for most forms of culvert or road underpass. Their proven strength and durability ensure the long term service life requirements are easily met without the complex maintenance issues associated with steel culverts. They are quick and easy to install thereby ensuring that there is a minimum of disruption caused to the users of the road. The demand for precast box culverts is constantly growing due to their flexibility and the tight constraints on site programmes. Banagher Concrete now have forty different box culvert moulds in use and we’re constantly adding to this list. In addition to standard box units we also offer a u-duct option which is outlined on a separate information sheet. Each culvert is individually designed by our experienced design team for any application and for any loading including RU railway loads. All our designs fulfill the requirements of BS5400 and BD 31/87. TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

» » » » » »

Balancing tanks The most economic means of storing large volumes of storm water is to use single or multiple spans of box culvert. Stream culverts Allows the developer to achieve maximum benefit from the land. We have designed culverts to pass under buildings. Road culvert The quickest and most economical means of constructing a road crossing or replacing a small bridge. Multi-Cell Multiple lines of culvert are laid side by side to meet any flow capacity requirement. Pipe replacement U nlike concrete pipes, culverts can be designed for as little as 200mm cover for situations where finished levels have tight constraints. Underpasses Sizes are available to suit pedestrian and vehicle underpasses. Another common use is the cattle underpass with larger culverts allowing agricultural vehicles access. Tunnels Culverts are often used for underground service tunnels, escape tunnels and pedestrian subways. Shafts Used on their end culverts can provide vertical access shafts which can resist very high pressures. They are also used in this way to pre-fabricate water storage tanks.
