A new mould is now in operation for Kijlstra in its UK factory, allowing the firm to produce a larger range of culverts. The specialist precast concrete drainage manufacturer says that the new moulds also allow for faster production and lead times. As the new moulds are adaptable a wider range of culvert configurations can be offered. The firm can now produce a range of sizes up to 2.1m in height and 3.6m in width, with a standard wall and slab thickness of 250mm. Prior to leaving the factory the units are fitted with a rubber gasket seal so that a contractor does not have to prepare and prime the connections to fit jointing material, allowing a quick and easy push-fit installation.
