MISCELLANEOUS CONCRETE ITEMS

MEDIAN BARRIERS
U.P. Concrete Pipe Company manufactures temporary concrete median barriers meeting the Michigan DOT standard “Indiana Spec” and NCHRP 350 crashworthy criteria. These barriers are used for safety to separate traffic traveling in opposite directions, traffic traveling in the same direction, and to redirect errant vehicles. These temporary concrete barriers may be used as a median barrier in certain situations, or may be used to protect traffic from a temporary construction hazard such as road or bridge repairs.

Barriers can also be manufactured less the connecting cables and attachment pins when other specifications indicate, if attachment isn't required, or when a single placement is desired.

PARKING CURBS
Standard precast parking curbs (bumpers or stops) are manufactured at U.P. Concrete Pipe Company in 6” high x 10” wide x 8' lengths. 3 holes are placed in the curb to accommodate ½" rebar which can be inserted into and through the curb for anchoring to asphalt or concrete surfaces. U.P. Concrete Pipe Company can also manufacture parking curbs conforming to MDOT III-74D specifications if required.

BOAT LAUNCH PLANKS
Precast boat launch planks are manufactured according to specific project design specifications and can vary in length, width, thickness and structural steel content as required. The planks include lifting points used to handle and position them and can also include attachment loops to help join them together once placed at the site.

CATCH BASIN / MANHOLE BLOCK & BRICK
U.P. Concrete Pipe Company has block available to build 24” catch basins and sumps as well as 48”, 60”, 72” and 96” inside diameter manhole structures.  Catch basin block is typically used to finish 24” precast sumps to within a foot of finished grade before placing concrete adjusting rings and a street casting.  Manhole block is used when a particular structure is too shallow to precast, or when too many inlet & outlet openings are required for a precast structure to be built.  Brick can be used to adjust a casting to finished grade, or help fill in around inlet & outlet pipes in block structures before grouting.

CONCRETE ADJUSTING RINGS
U.P. Concrete Pipe Company manufactures concrete adjusting rings (grade rings) designed to make adjustments for finished grade. This is accomplished by placing the adjusting rings between the 24” block, manhole cone, or flat top cover and the street casting. When manholes or catch basins are installed in roadways, designers frequently specify a stack of adjusting rings 6 to 8 inches high to allow for easy grade adjustment if required for future construction.

Available sizes for precast concrete adjusting rings include 24” x 36” id/od, 27” x 37” id/od or 26” x 38” id/od and are available in 2”, 3” and 4” thicknesses.
