Precast concrete pipe is the strongest and most resilient drainage pipe available. It can be designed and plant-tested to accommodate any load required. It has minimal reliance on installation practices to support loads; and it relies primarily on its inherent strength manufactured into the pipe. Concrete pipe design and installation leads to the long-term success of a project.
Precast concrete box structures are the ideal solution to a wide range of construction applications. Their traditional use is for culverts as an alternative to concrete pipe. They are available in a wide range of sizes for culverts, attenuation tanks, pedestrian subways, access shafts, service tunnels, marine outfalls, road crossings, and a variety of other applications. In all cases they are specified where strength, durability, and economy are paramount.
Manholes are major elements of sanitary sewers and storm water management systems. They are used for access to sewers for inspection, cleaning and removing obstruction in the pipeline, and transition structures allowing changes in alignment. In addition, they are vents for gases, and the location where there may be a change in the diameter of pipelines or a junction. Manholes facilitate the laying of pipelines in convenient lengths.
Storm water structures are the concrete structures of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) that control surface water quantity, improve surface water quality, and provide added value to the attractiveness of a development. SuDS structures include: concrete pipe of various shapes and sizes; manholes; multi-chamber systems; flow control chambers; catch basins; treatment chambers; headwalls; box culverts and grey water recycling tanks.
Precast concrete electrical/telcom structures produced by TurnerCo. are used for laying conduits for electric and telecommunications lines, as well as other utilities such as water and fiber optics. The products may be in the form of vaults and manholes, or specially-designed encasements. Galleries used below the streets of congested urban areas can be precast for speedy construction and man-entry for maintenance of the utilities.
Turner Company has two sizes of precast concrete safe room to accommodate groups of 4 and 7. Their safe rooms are designed to add to existing residential units as well as those being planned, and in garages with a concrete foundation. They are designed for installation in rooms and closets, providing a readily available escape from danger. The walls are 4-inches thick with rebar reinforcement. The structure is directly anchored to the concrete foundation.
Aerobic and Anaerobic Septic Systems
The Turner Company supplies precast concrete aerobic and anaerobic sewage treatment systems from the Rhone facility or through local distributors. Anaerobic septic systems involve the use of bacteria that don't require oxygen to live. An aerobic septic system involves three tanks. Waste enters the first tank and settles, then moves to the next tank where an aerator moves oxygen bubbles through the waste. This allows aerobic bacteria to consume the waste before discharge.
