Headwalls 

Headwalls are a type of retaining wall that is commonly found near streams, ditches, or similar waterways.  They are used to keep the earth away from pipe openings and to provide support for bridges and roadways.  Since they are made of precast concrete, our headwalls offer convenience, time savings, and superior durability.  Oldcastle Precast offers several different styles of headwalls to meet the needs of almost any project.

Endwalls, sometimes also referred to as headwalls, are rectangular concrete slabs that have a pipe opening knockout and are placed vertically, parallel to the roadway.  They are placed at the outlet of a culvert to control erosion from the changing water turbulence at the stream outlet.  They are ideal for small streams and ditches. 

Applications:

  • Roadways
  • Bridges
  • Pedestrian bridges
  • Used as part of a culvert in water management
  • Storm water management
