Snap-Tite® – The No Dig Solution
Snap-Tite® now meets the AASHTO standard M326
It’s official! Snap-Tite® now meets the AASHTO standard M326. This is the ONLY standard for relining culverts. State Departments of Transportation, counties and municipalities are facing a critical problem, which has lead AASHTO (American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials) to create this standard. Culverts installed 40 to 50 years ago are failing at an alarming rate nationwide. Thousands of corrugated metal culverts are so significantly rusted that a danger of sink holes, road collapse or flooding exists. Concrete culverts have cracked or pulled apart at the joint, creating similar dangerous scenarios. Conventional repair methods of the past have been to dig and replace the failed pipe. There is now a dash to find a solution that is economically feasible, quick and avoids road closures and detours for the motoring public. The solution: A Snap-Tite® Culvert Lining System.
Your goal: A brand new culvert with better flow capabilities.
Are your culverts in need of repair or replacement? Culvert damage and aging isn’t something we look for every day. It’s usually out of sight and, unfortunately, out of mind. Deteriorating culverts come quickly to mind when roadway damage caused by corroded, rusted and washed-out culverts occurs. Traditional culvert replacement methods are an expensive, time-consuming, labor-intensive process.
Your solution: Snap-Tite Culvert Lining pipe.
Finally, there’s a no-dig solution to culvert lining and culvert rehab in the form of Snap-Tite. Culvert rehabilitation utilizing the Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System is an intelligent, cost-effective solution to this need. Snap-Tite rehabilitates a failing culvert lining system without the need to remove the existing deteriorated pipe. The Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System actually outperforms the concrete and corrugated metal it rehabilitates. Lightweight, flexible, durable HDPE has an indefinite service life. And the Snap-Tite culvert lining joining system assures a water-tight seal at all joints.
Trenchless Technology Rehabilitation at its best.
The Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System is unmatched in ease of installation. Its no-dig approach to rehabilitate a failing culvert by using the trenchless technology approach results in minimal training and no specialized equipment to complete the project successfully. Simple installation means light duty equipment and less manpower. Minimal disturbance of right-of-way. Indefinite service life. When considering these benefits, it becomes clear that the Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System is the most cost-effective way to rehabilitate deteriorating culverts. It may just be the last solution you’ll ever need.
Better Performance and Easy Installation / Sizes to Suit Your Needs
High density polyethylene pipe (HDPE) with the Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System has tremendous advantages over concrete and corrugated metal replacement or repair. Snap-Tite Culvert Lining piping is available in diameters from 8 inches to 63 inches round and lengths ranging from 2 to 50 feet, allowing minimal disturbance of Right of Way. Facing a damaged culvert next to a high embankment? Not a problem with Snap-Tite. Small segments can be “snapped” together, all with strong, water-tight seals. Because of Snap-Tite’s ease of installation and variable lengths, 95% of culvert repairs or rehabilitations can be done off road. This means increased safety for both your workers and motorists. Traffic disturbance can be a thing of the past; all work is done in the culvert itself, not by digging up roadways.
These advantages also make Snap-Tite Culvert Lining pipe the perfect answer for culvert extensions, road-widening, direct burial applications, drainage, dam levee and sewer repairs with limited access.
